Randy Roberts Potts, grandson of famed televangelist Oral Roberts--the original big baller of modern day American Christianity and founder of Oral Roberts University (Michele Bachmann's alma mater)--is out to expose the gay agenda for what it really is: watching TV, ironing, fiddling with a puzzle, lounging around with the boyfriend and other utterly mundane activities homophobes think gay couples are incapable of. It's all a part of Potts' traveling side show designed to challenge misconceptions about well, being gay.
"It could be a typically staid and eventless evening for Randy, with one fat exception: He's doing all this on a 6-by-16-foot set on a patch of downtown sidewalk, surrounded by drifting crowds of passersby.
With folded arms and befuddled frowns, the onlookers try to make sense of the scene—to the right, atop rugs laid directly on the concrete, there's a farm table and a bookcase stocked with cans of black-eyed peas and stewed tomatoes; to the left, a leather couch sits before a black-and-white television on which a silvery episode of The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp is flickering. A few of them lean in to read a printed explanation affixed to a coatrack up front. THE GAY AGENDA, it explains, IS PERFORMANCE ART DESIGNED TO FOSTER LOVE AND ACCEPTANCE. Huh. They glance up at Randy—he's dipping a spoon into the slow-cooker now, or studying the half-done puzzle—and then lower their gaze back to the paper. In capital letters, they see: THE GAY AGENDA AS CONCEIVED SHOULD BE INCREDIBLY BORING TO WATCH."
