“I always say, always have a prenuptial agreement. But I won't say that because you people don't get divorced, right?”

–Donald Trump, dispensing wisdom to students at Liberty University, the Evangelical college founded by Jerry Falwell.

Am I the only who thinks that the only way a guy who owns casinos, has been divorced multiple times, and hosts a tv game show about greed can get a speaking gig at Liberty University is because he's a birther?

I mean, what else do they have in common?

Help support the change in the way election campaign funds

are raised.  Stop the Super Pacs from

steering the candidates and ruling the government. 

Come march on Congress and show them that the American

Population do not want candidates to be persuaded by these Super Pacs any more.

Visit www.indiegogo.com/SuperPac

and help raise the awareness of this problem.

My daughter was on the activities board of her college and was told that they paid Snookie $16K to speak at her school.  Until I now, I thought that it was the single worst use of university activities funds in history.  Hiring Trump "trumped" that...They couldn't pay that hack little-enough to make it worth bringing him in.

I'm still wondering WHAT Snooki could possibly have to say that ANYONE would be willing to spend 16k to hear...

Just viewing the show "Jersey Shore"  (even by accident) is a MAJOR cause of brain dysfunction in this country, IMHO.

I think that she gave some kind of talk on beauty and makeup, then judged a toga contest. For this,they took pass on Maya Angelou. Hard to imagine the thought process that went into that decision.

Still remember the description someone put up regarding Tammy Faye's face after a broadcast/on-cue breakdown...

A "Maybelline Mudslide"... can't improve on that. 

I think ALL of the televangelists have SOMEONE on staff that can "tear up" when asking for your hard-earned dollars to put another wing on their mansions.

"Which trowel to buy at Home Depot to apply your makeup?"

The Tammy Faye Baker makeup bucket comes with it's own trowel and base spackling shovel.

What kind of tips, I wonder...?

Which trowel to buy at Home Depot to apply your makeup?

Astinence tips? Scratch that... guess Bristol Palin wasn't available for those.

Wait... I got it... campaign tips for Mitt Romney.

She and "The Situation" could give him advice on capturing the Latina/o vote... or, at the very least, how to LOOK like one (see previous make-up tips).

It is a sad commentary that Liberty University would invite this guy to speak, even to their business school.  This guy has made a load of money promoting his Ego.  Somehow I fail to find anything in the scriptures which supports this idea.  What did Trump ever do?  Did he ever invent a better mousetrap?  Has he been a paragon of Christian values?

I have nothing against Trump, personally, but most of the things he has done have been against my values as a Christian.

I had read recently that Trump does very little development anyway.  Most of the stuff with his name on it now is just licensed to a contractor that wants to jack-up the prices based upon the Trump mystique

I'd rate the buffoon Trump over Jerry Falwell any day.   They just might deserve each other.

In related news:  Trump to hold fundraiser for Allen West on Oct 1 at Trump Tower.  Allen West on those who attack our Embassies:  "The Angel of Death in the form of the American Bald EAgle will visit you and wreak havoc and destruction upon your existence."  

The Republican Party has gone bat-sh*t crazy and deserve Trump, Falwell, and Allen West.

Finally, The Donald talks about something in which he actually has some expertise. With three divorces and three bankruptcies on his resume, perhaps he'll provide advice to the Fed next.

This actually makes me dislike the Donald a little less for some reason...

And they don't have pre-marital sex... or abortions... or cheat on their taxes... or bad morning breath... or the heartbreak of psoriasis.

Or lie... they would NEVER do that... even to win a political election...because lying is one of the seven deadly sins.

I'm curious... Catholics have confessional... but what do the Evangelicals have when they have to willingly transgress for what they see as the greater good?

Plop an extra C-note in the collection plate? Do they have to promise never to do it again (and thereby compound the problem.. because they KNOW they are going to do it all over again)?

Inquiring minds want to know...

Not a gay amongst them.  Nary a one.  As to what do Evangelicals do when they sin - from attending many a Baptist and Methodist church while growing up in the South, I learned my salvation was due to simply believing.  That's it.  Believe and you're saved - no need for confession.  Whosoever believeth in me . . .

 Two of my former brothers-in-law, who belonged to an evangelical Baptist church, believed that they could do anything they wanted during the week as long as they went to church on Sunday. Seriously.

I believe...... that I'll tell another whopper to get what I want.

You DO understand.... don't you, God?  Hello...?

Is there anyone, anyone at all, besides his fellow 0.05%'ers that he identifies with?

I'll bet when the Romneys visited London for the Olympics / trashing of, they made the Royal Family bow and curtsey to them. Maybe after Mitt loses he can buy the Cayman Islands from the UK and make it his own kingdom, literally.

That's the sort of thing those people do. Heard on NPR the other day that Larry Ellison bought a Hawaiian island.
