Internal Oral Roberts "Scandal Vulnerability Assessment": Roberts' wife overnight in ORU guest house with underage male 9 times

Jeebus, what's wrong with these people? Do they think they're Catholic priests, or what? Just plain Republicans?

AP:

The amended complaint also included an internal ministry report, titled "Scandal Vulnerability Assessment," documenting allegations of misconduct by the university and the Roberts family. Only a partial report was included in the Oct. 2 lawsuit.

The more detailed account alleges Richard Roberts' wife, Lindsay, spent the night in the ORU guest house with an underage male "on nine separate occasions," and was photographed 29 times with an underage male in her sports car, among other allegations.

You know who this is reminding me of, right?

That BMW-drivin', cruisin' fool, Mark Foley (R-Neverland). "Don't forget to measure for me!"

As always with authoritarians: It's the abuse of power, stupid!

This sounds more like National Lampoon than a leading blog...

As an American, I reserve judgment until BOTH sides have a day in a COURT other than the one of public opinion.

As a man I resent remarks that are sexist and vulgar...

As a liberal, who is an Oklahoman by birth and a former Baptist as a boy, and one who knows hypocrisy when I smell it... I am offended both by the offenders as well as the lawyers who seek to overthrow them. A pox on both your houses...

And the rest of you, grow up...

Just asking.

Frankly, as an American, what I mind is that Christianist loons have their hands in my pocket through Bush's "faith [cough] -based" initiative.

Gwan, Dallas -- shoot the messenger!

Vulgur is "underaged male" bewailing never having been molested by a schoolteacher. And another "anonymous coward" seconding the motion. And the homophobic observation by yet another "anonymous coward". Homophobia and misogyny are no more amusing or "progressive" when targetted at conservatives and fundamentalists.

I agree with your sentiment, but in all seriousness, I had sex before the age of 18, and I would have liked to have had sex with an attractive adult woman before I was 18, but never had the opportunity. I don't think I would have been damaged by such an encounter, either. I think there is a big difference between sexual encounters between young males and older females versus young females and older males. This has to do with the differing impact of the sex act to each gender. Historically, the male sex act has been used as a weapon (see, e.g. the rape of the concubine, or other instances just from the Bible alone). Thus, when adding an age disparity, it is more egregious when an older male has sex with a young female. However, for the same reason, it is less egregious and violative when a young male has sex with an older female.

Is that a sufficiently staid and serious analysis of the issue, without resorting to sophmoric vulgarities? I've thought about this a lot.

I thought Dallas was castigating the anonymous cowards?

And it really frosts me (Sarah) when poeple show up, then say "a pox on both houses" based on anonymous comments.

Typical pearl-clutching concern troll tactic.

Incidentally, if anyone wants a purity test, here's a handy checklist.

over-sensitized.

You mentioned shattered nerves last night.

I've got a kind of all-over bruised psyche, today.

One question, as the wife on an evangelist, did Lindsay prefer the "Missionary" position on those 9 overnight visits, or being that the university in Oklahoma, did she totally kink out with something culturally apropos like a reverse cowgirl?

On the other hand, the "visits did happen at an "Oral" Roberts University guest house, so maybe the action was limited to long fellatio/cunnilingus sessions?

I'm so confused about the bedroom habits evangelical republicans. Maybe Dr. Drew can answer questions like, "Is a sin for Jesus lovin' republican women to enjoy rimjobs?"

I am a believer in GOD and his word. I believe GODs people are to be blessed, healed, and prosperous.

Recently with all the scandal in the body of christ Juanita Bynum, Paula White, Oral Roberts. I want to say that certain leaders in the church are just plain pathetic, we are suppose to be the example to the world. With the crap we are seeing now, there is no difference between the Kingdom and the World

...and it's not surprising the most vocal believers are the most delusional.

Underaged male, don't kid yourself.

These Dominionists are babies with rabies.

Find someone else to shoot marbles with that won't try to convince you that you have a soul and proceed to devour it, your mind, and your money at the same time.

Normally, I wouldn't care. It's all about consent, which is exactly what the authoritarians and the Christianist loons don't get. But somehow, I don't think that the base is going to take the same attitude with Mrs. Roberts.

There's also the issue that Mrs. Roberts was in a position of some authority over the 18-year-old--I imagine a lot, given the dynastic nature of the Roberts family--so the question of whether the consent could be real would be colored by that. That's why I frame the issue as abuse of power, because that's the common thread in all the authoritarian scandals.

I've heard her/seen her on t.v. She seems very "worldly" to me & not overly bright. The type that thinks she can get away with this with a young guy...maybe a female Bill clinton, except she may have been the one on her knees in front of the young guy.
