That's a name for porn right there... not Mormon education or whatever...

Does this mean the basketball team will win the college basketball title for their namesake?

Also, I thought he was Mormon because I could've sworn his U was in Utah, but it's in Oklahoma and he's actually some Christian denomination. All those western states just blend together for me... :D

I for one, am not shedding any tears. That man pioneered the t.v. "Preach for money" crusade that to this day wastes airtime that could be used for decent programing on Sunday mornings. Sorry if I offended anyone. I do have my faith, and believe the very thing that made him famous, also made him a hippocrite.

I agree. Most televangelists are crooks and often misuse the Bible to promote hate and lies.

Oral was one of 'em. Didn't he beg for something like $7 million just because "Jesus told me so"?

telethonvangelists give a very bad name to religion. jerry falwell was bad. pat robertson, that pink haired lady with the tatooed whoreish facepaint and catchers mitt face on tbn and that peon male cohost she's with are the worst. they appeal to the very lowest common denominator and exploit these poor people's helplessness and confusion to suck the very dollars these people could use to help themselves out and funnel it to these billion dollar ministries (how much of which do you think is skimmed off the top by these ministers?) to advance a regressive agenda that hurts everyone in general. good night and good riddens.

oh and it looks like the university of louisville fighting cardinals basketball team exercised some demons tonight 94-57.

Not sure if this was the same thing, but back in the 80's, he claimed that he had
to raise X amount of dollars for his University, or God would "call him home", and
magically he managed to raise the money. :rolleyes:

I keep trying to be a good person, but all I want to say is, "Yep, God finally called
Oral home".

If you think folks like Oral can sneak past St Peter, I've got a truck load of slightly used angels wings to sell you all.
