    I wonder if he preached of inclusion, (instead of firing those from his church who did)
    if his current accommodations would be less on the hot side and more on the fluffy cloud side.

    Isn't Oral what your 12 year old boyfriends call you?

  11. 11

    My great-grandmother loved him and sent him money for decades. I did find Oral a strange name for a religious man, however.

    You stupid fucking twat. You're not worth the "gay" the good lord made you. He was a vile human being.

  13. 13

    That's sad. I watched him on tv not long ago. Always kept his faith, good man. Not sad for his spirit though which is in heaven!

    Gotta thank you, Perez, for your tact. Very respectful. This is hardly a man I agreed with or even fully understood, but he was a man with a life and thank you for announcing his passing with no politics or judgement. We're all just trying to do our best, no? Kudos to you for succeeding, and to him…for trying.

    I live in Oklahoma and always assumed this crazy bastard had been dead for the last 20 years. Shows how much I give a shit. ORU is the biggest eye sore EVER. Gross.

  16. 16

    Who cares?!

  17. 17

    all these religious self-rightous bastards need to go

    you know what this means right ???
    God is standing at the Pearly Gates waiting to receive Oral ;)

    may God forgive YOU ALL for all the things you guys said. You can NOT rejoice in anyone's death. SHAME ON ALL OF YOU LIBERTARDS!!! at least show SOME kind of respect for this man's family

  20. 20

    Why would you name your kid Oral?

  21. 21

    goodbye and good riddance. May the devil enjoy your company; make sure to give him good Oral……

  22. 22

    jeeze, mario … i'm all for showing respect for the dead and all that but you DO know that this man was an anti-gay bigot who donated huge sums of money to fight gay rights.. and his "university" will kick you out if you're gay, don't you ?!?
    you really should stick to stealing items about teenage 'stars' because, otherwise, you have no idea what you are talking about.

    May this hate monger rest in hellfire

    good riddance

    Perez…I truly appreciate your respect for Oral. Even though you two may not have agreed on everything, unlike the idiots that are posting rude comments like "burn in hell," it's times like these that you earn my respect. Oral was a man that lived by what he believed, and integrity, no matter where it lays, has value to me. His legacy will live on.

  27. 27

    Perez…you have earned my respect by respecting Oral Roberts even though his beliefs were far from yours. Good for you!

  28. 28

    That's so sad. I was born and raised in and around Tulsa and a few of my family members attended ORU. Good school!

    "May he be in heaven half-an-hour before the devil knows he's dead"

    Re: johnsmith209 – hitler and stalin lived by what they believed as well. do you weep copious tears and feel bad for their loved ones when you think about their deaths as well.
    dying doesn't make somebody a saint.

    All the people abusing this righteous man are very ignorant! He was preaching the Word of God. Do not curse him for doing that. He is in heaven collecting his reward for faithfulness!
