Richard Roberts receives a vote of no confidence from ORU

Nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah nah – Hey Hey Hey, GOOOOD BYE!

I just saw this in my email tonight, and I was so giddy I just wanted to pass along the news to my friends here at the Blend!  Enjoy!

TULSA, Okla. (AP) – Embattled Oral Roberts University president Richard Roberts, facing accusations he misspent university funds to support a lavish lifestyle, has received a vote of no confidence by the tenured faculty at the evangelical university.

The resolution was approved by faculty Monday and obtained late Tuesday by The Associated Press. Faculty plan to distribute the nonbinding document to the school's Board of Regents and the faculty assembly at an upcoming meeting.

Donald Vance, a professor of biblical languages and literature who voted with the majority, said the vote by a quorum of faculty was “nearly unanimous,” but he declined to give the exact tally.

“It's essentially how the university has been run,” said Vance, who has taught at the 5,700-student school for 13 years. “We see the Board of Regents as allies wanting to do the right thing, but we're not sure they know everything and we're not sure they knew how the faculty felt.”

Jeremy Burton, a spokesman for Oral Roberts University, declined to comment on the vote Tuesday.

Boy oh boy!  One down, several thousand to go.  It's high time everyone sees how the AmTaliban lavishly live – and move to extricate them from their position(s) of power or so-called power!  Hey media!  There's a HUGE mega-church in the southwest Chicago suburbs that should be next!
