Oral Roberts dies at age 91

The Associated Press reports that infamous televangelist and founder of Oral Roberts University, Oral Roberts, died yesterday at the age of 91.

Oral Roberts was a pioneer in religious television broadcasting and is one of the early proponents of the Word Faith Movement. Roberts will likely be remembered most for his proclamation in the 1980's that God would "call me home" if he didn't raise $8 million.
