The Soulforce Equality Ride is now heading toward Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma, today. The group should arrive at the school and hold their gathering on Monday.
The school, founded by televangelist Oral Roberts, has declined to comment on whether or not the Riders would be allowed on campus to converse and dialogue with students.
According to an article on 365gay.com:
A bus carrying carrying several dozen young gay activists headed west on Sunday, bound for Oral Roberts University in Tulsa Oklahoma.
Oral Roberts will be the fifth school to be targeted by the Equality Ride a 51 day cross-country trip organized by the nondenominational group Soulforce to draw attention to colleges and military academies that discriminate against LGBT students.
