And another one bites the dust. What a card that God is! He tells Oral that Oral will be summarily killed if the money isn't raised to keep his faith healing center afloat. And so Oral gets the money, and then the center shuts down three years later anyway! Then God waits until the fellow is basically decades older than the average human life expectancy, and kills him then, without a warning or cash extortion attempt of any kind. God, you joker you!
Oh, well, actually, God was never involved in any part of it. Oral was just another huckster who struck it rich exploiting ignorance and gullibility, and enjoyed the sort of long and prosperous life that, if we lived in a just world, honest people would be more entitled to. But I suspect even Oral wasn't as shady as the federally-investigated Kenneth Copeland, seen below administering a kind of Christian rolfing to the ORU patriarch. If you wish to commemorate Oral's passing by captioning/LOLing this, we won't stop you.
Addendum: Here's mine. Forgive me. (In the event it gets flagged and taken down as "inappropriate," I've taken a screenshot.)

Oral gave us one of the great Doonesbury strips ever -ReplyDelete
The fraud lived to long - he outlived Jerry Garcia by over 14 years. Now that's a tragedy.

So, if these sorts of things go in threes, can we hope for Pat Robertson and Benny Hinn to round out the trifecta?

The idea of Roberts biting it from a Jesus statue falling on him is just too delicious. Is there anyway to retcon reality?
Thanks for the picture, Martin. I had lots of fun rofling it on my blog.ReplyDelete

what amuses me is this is less 'praying hands' and more Mr. Burns "eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeexceeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeellllllllllllleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeent' hands.
Ing: Actually, the 900-foot Jesus crack wasn't referring to a statue, but Oral's most famous and widely-reported "vision." In case you hadn't heard about it, enjoy this.ReplyDelete
The band MC 900 Ft. Jesus got their name from this. Probably Oral's only valuable contribution to culture.
Almighty Lord in Heaven, HEAL this poor man of his wretched name! Left and right he hears childish puns and obscene jokes about it. Lord Jesus, make this man better, HEAL this man!ReplyDelete
My God, he's been cured! His name is now Kevin! Hallelujah! Praise be upon Him, for he is merciful and all-powerful!

I like pita bread sandwiches, Martin. It looks, by the way, that Oral is holding his hands in antipation of a footlong. I'm going to work on it.ReplyDelete
I've seen some pretty big pita bread sandwiches....ReplyDelete
