    Wow, great to see. Such a commitment to education, needs to be a top priority in this country if we are to stay a world leader. We have fallen in the ranks in education and anything to help is a step in the right direction! I'd think that no matter where you are positioned in the political spectrum that this would be viewed as positive. Seems to be completely selfless too. I will admit however, that the title of the article is a bit misleading as I can't find an actual dollar amount to put to the donation only the majority of the money earned from the transaction.

    Thoughts?
    4 billion?

    awesome no matter the reasons.

    And R2 records it and plays it as a hologram.

    YourStar! You haven't read the myriad threads where posters criticize Romney for his contributions to the Mormon Church? Where they've said that his contributions weren't all that much considering his net worth? Where the Mormon Church wasn't "worthy" of being a charitable organization? Where they hardly spent any money on helping anybody? Where he did it just to avoid paying taxes?

    Are you and I on the same Debate Politics?

    No I haven't seen that, though frankly for the past few months I've kept to the Sex, and Sports forums

    Though I do agree that giving to an organization that uses their money to ban SSM in California shouldn't be considered a charitable donation.

    Id have to agree with YS here, sorry Mags, i have seen a couple things about net worth and tax stuff but nothing big or in any mass numbers as you suggest.

    Now that doesnt mean it didnt happen, it might have just been posted by the hacks i dont read or pay attention to often.

    another area id have to agree with YS is if the church or org that received said money was one of the ones spending millions and millions to fight against equal rights then yeah calling them (that particular church/org) a charity takes away from the word.

    Yeah, I've been spending much-too-much time on DP of late. Can't wait to get my sanity back. Ha!

    According to your thinking, I guess the Catholic Church doesn't fit that mold either?
