'Female Tiger Woods' Once Prowled Premiere Christian Right Bible College

Thanks, God.

There was talk last week about why there aren't Big Sex Scandals involving Reverse-Tigers, that is, women cheating bigtime on their spouses Tiger Woodsily. At the time, I sort of half-remembered that there indeed was such a scandal and that it had a religio-hypocritical twist to it, but I couldn't recall the details. Anyway it bugged me. Happily, though, Oral Roberts just croaked, and now I remember!

Twenty years ago, televangelist Oral Roberts said he was reading a spy novel when God appeared to him and told him to raise $8 million for Roberts' university, or else he would be "called home."

Now, his son, President Richard Roberts, says God is speaking again, telling him to deny lurid allegations in a lawsuit that threatens to engulf this 44-year-old Bible Belt college in scandal.
