Excellent piece; obviously it confirms most of what I have long believed about that place so I suppose it caters to my prejudices.

Two points. I have twice been treasurer of a 501(c)(3) operation - both of them comfortably less than $20,000 total assets and maybe $10,000 total activity per year - and they are the sort of thing you probably recognize as a charity. Earnest people sitting around in a room after work on their own time and dime working out how to promote public health goals and having a bit of fun while doing it. So we would have dinner events at a restaurant with a talk on some subject and everyone pays $30 and gets a piece of fish or chicken or steak with a veggie option. Every year we'd find $500 to give some local teenager (usually culled from the science fair) a few $ for college. That to me is what a 501(c)(3) operation is. We had to file annually our operating accounts with the IRS and they were correct to the penny and we had to file annually with the state to maintain our charitable status. To have one section of the IRS code covering both that and a multi-billion dollar operation such as Liberty University is ridiculous. To call Liberty University a non-profit should offend the English Department, if they have one.

The piece again ridicules Brother Trump for his 'infamous' "two Corinthians" reference. There are 10,000 things I'd stack against his name before that one: that's how we used to refer to it when I was 12 to distinguish it from the other one and because it was a lot quicker than saying St Paul's Second Epistle to the Corinthians.

Yes, I suppose I could agree with you ... but then we'd both be wrong, wouldn't we?

I've never heard of it called anything but Second Corinthians or the longer titles Pau's Scond Letter/Epistle to the Corinthians/Church in Corinth.

As for the article, nonprofits are not all 501c3 organizations nor do they exist for chrtiable, artisitic, and other 501c3 purposes. Pay out all you revenue means you will be a nonprofit, but you are not a 501c3.

But the article does point out the problems with 501c3 organizations and their use in politics; the rules are easily circumvented, and often broken with no real consequence, many times by religious organizations which advocate for particular politicians. But we'll never see it end, it feed sthe political machine.

As for me and most of my faith tradition cousins, we speak of it as 'second Corinthians' and in writing cite it roman numeral II Cor.

I say 'most' because one of the glories of Christianity is that NOBODY represents all of us. Specially not anyone from Liberty University.

The other reason it is raised a lot is because it exposes the idiocy of the bible thumpers who flock to the televangelists, etc. Imagine if Obama had made the same statement, I pretty much guarantee that their response would be to say it only shows he is no christian and does not read the bible at all. But with Trump, just crickets.

... then again, we silly-billy folks do say 1 Kings, 1 Chronicles and 1 Samuel. We don't say First Kings nor yet Second Samuel (doubtless to avoid confusion with other people name David)

OK, and I concede such usage is/may be/may have been a regional thing; however, I grew up in NYC (where Trump did) and we never used the ordinal number designationsterms, indeed I never hear the integers used. I attended a variety of churches (my mom sent me to every vacation bible school and youth group she could find to keep me off the streets), and they all used the same designations.

WTF? I thought Ricardo Montalban was born in Mexico, not Greece.

Easy accessibility to conflicting information on the internet makes everybody stupid.

From what I recall, there is no such thing as Corinthian Leather; the advertisers coined and used the term because they liked the way Ricardo said it.

Now Jerry Jr. is demanding a DOJ investigation into the criminal conspiracy at Liberty U - the one of folks spilling the beans on his craven ways. :lol:

Sad thing is, his buddy Trump will probably give him what he wants.
