Benny Hinn and an assortment of other god peddlers have resigned their posts at Oral Roberts University in the wake of the spending scandal and other problems at the school.
Two televangelists have resigned their posts as regents at Oral Roberts University, as the debt-ridden school tries to regroup following a spending scandal involving its former president. The university on Thursday also settled with one of three professors who filed a wrongful termination lawsuit against the school.
Benny Hinn and I.V. Hilliard resigned as regents, where they were involved in making major school decisions, university spokesman Jeremy Burton said Thursday. Burton declined to say why the two resigned, but said both wrote the board to express their support for the school’s mission.
The resignations come a month after the resignations from the board of regents of two other televangelists, Jesse Duplantis and Creflo Dollar.
I’m personally enjoying the downfall of the Roberts family. I remember that scam daddy Roberts pulled back in 1987 in order to bilk people out of millions of dollars. With tears in his eyes he appeared on the television stating that if the viewers did not send him at least $8 million dollars, his god was going to kill him. Roberts managed to raise a bit over nine million dollars by April of the same year.
This money was allegedly supposed to be for used for scholarships that would send medical missionaries overseas. By January of the following year, Daddy Roberts had announced the closure of his “City of Faith” and ceased the scholarships. By March the scholarship fund went bankrupt and Daddy Roberts was charging the receivers of the scholarships interest to the tune of 18 percent if they transferred to another institution. In September of 1989, the City of Faith was closed.
God has yet to kill Daddy Roberts for failure to truly establish “his medical presence on earth” per his order in 1986.
Is it any wonder that his son would turn out to be a crooked little shit? He was raised by one of the best Christian scam artist of the times.
