Oral Roberts Dies at 91 Today After Fall Saturday And Pnuemonia

Used to watch these when I lived in South Carolina as a child with my family of course, and frankly liked watching them back then right before wrestling and football with pops on Sundays long time ago.

He's been around my whole life, and we can be sure the left is loving all the death of these older evangelist's lately, but.....  in all honesty, many of these folks have been quite the hucksters along the way. 

Tammy Faye and Jim Baker along with Jimmy Swaggart come to mind for me. And this family business was mired in scandal of it's own in 2009 with frankly some quit salacious charges against his son Richard who's the president of the university and his wife who seems to have a thing for young boys according to this AP piece earlier in the year.

His "God gave him an ultimatum" deal was a little shady back in '87 as well. I'll leave that one alone.

But this man leaves a legacy, a University with a decent basketball team, the Golden eagles, and even though his family seems hypocritical and quite f'd up in it's own ways at the present time, which one's aren't? Tiger Woods anyone?

 Rest in peace.

CNN.com: "(CNN) -- Evangelist Oral Roberts, founder of the Oral Roberts Evangelistic Association and Oral Roberts University, died Tuesday from complications of pneumonia in Newport Beach, California, his spokeswoman said. He was 91.

Roberts' son, Richard, and daughter Roberta were at his side, spokeswoman Melany Ethridge said in a statement.

Roberts was hospitalized Monday following a fall on Saturday, in which he suffered broken bones, Ethridge said earlier, adding he was being treated for pneumonia.

There will be a private interment, the statement said. Arrangements for a public memorial service in Tulsa, Oklahoma, are pending.

Granville Oral Roberts was born into poverty in Bebee, Oklahoma, on January 24, 1918, according to a brief biography released by Ethridge. His Christian ministry began with what he described as his own miracle healing of tuberculosis at age 17."   continued
