Jacob Lupfer is the founder of the Save OBU (Oklahoma Baptist University) website. His thoughtful and considered posts about the struggles with the attempted fundamentalist takeover at OBU have been an inspiration to those of us at Save Our Shorter.

We encourage you to watch the whole series that Bruce Prescott has taped with Mr. Lupfer. The following video should be of great interest to SOS readers. Thank you, Jacob, for so clearly stating the concerns attendant to the Shorter takeover.
