Roberts Says God Forced His Resignation

TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Richard Roberts told students at Oral Roberts University Wednesday that he did not want to resign as president of the scandal-plagued evangelical school, but he did so because God insisted.
Roberts told students in the university's chapel that God told him on Thanksgiving that he should resign the next day.
Roberts said he resisted the idea, and that "every ounce of my flesh said 'no,'" but he prayed over the decision with his wife, Lindsay Roberts, and his father, Oral Roberts, and decided to step down.
A lawsuit accuses Roberts of lavish spending at a time when the university faced more than $50 million in debt. On Tuesday, the founder of a Christian office and education supply store chain pledged $70 million to help the university.
Roberts has previously said that God told him to deny the allegations. The week the lawsuit was filed, Richard Roberts said that God told: "We live in a litigious society. Anyone can get mad and file a lawsuit against another person whether they have a legitimate case or not. This lawsuit ... is about intimidation, blackmail and extortion."

he wanted to deny the allegation and the alligator. damn , i love that joke..anyway i tried to turn in my resignation to god but he wouldnt accept mine. he resisted it with every ounce of his strength but when he realized that he couldnt get out of this mean....god told him to resign, well, you cant say "no" to god.

just look at the picture. he looks like one of those elitist pieces of shit who would use goods name to fleece the flock. i sure hope hell has a special place for those assholes.
