    I thought RIP meant the same as Święte Pokoje?

    Really don't know that much about the man but am always suspicious of these mass marketing evangelists.
    But I must commend him for living his whole life with a terrible first name.

    TULSA, Okla. Oral Roberts, the evangelist who rose from humble tent revivals to found a multimillion-dollar ministry and a university bearing his name, died Tuesday. He was 91.

    Roberts died of complications from pneumonia in Newport Beach, Calif., according to his spokesman, A. Larry Ross. The evangelist was hospitalized after a fall on Saturday. He had survived two heart attacks in the 1990s and a broken hip in 2006.

    Roberts was a pioneer on two fronts he helped bring spirit-filled charismatic Christianity into the mainstream and took his trademark revivals to television, a new frontier for religion.

    He led a long and interesting life, my condolences to his family. I am not going to judge him... I will leave that to a higher power.

    Looks like people did not send in enough donations, so God finally did take him. This makes him a prophet.

    Seriously, though, people may differ on what they feel about him, but Oral Roberts did have quite an impact on religion in America.
