The District of Columbia Council voted to legalize same-sex marriage in the Nation’s Capital on Tuesday. Several U.S. Congressmen have stated they will moved to block this local law enacted by the duly elected local government.
Televangelist Oral Roberts responded by going into conference with his Maker, so the 91-year-old preacher was unavailable for comment. He was never very vocal on issues of sexuality anyway, perhaps because of his unfortunate first name.
Reverend Roberts commissioned Pentecostal comic books, spoke with a 900-foot-tall Jesus and extorted funds from his followers by threatening his own death, but he will be best remembered for his faith-healing. He even saved the medium of television from extinction for four decades. Nothing can save TV now.
