Thanks so much, Dan. The St Thomas Christian College website says: Saint Thomas Christian College has authorization to grant degrees by the Florida State Board of Independent Colleges and Universities under section 246.083 (1), Florida Statutes. Is that legit?
Hey Daniel, I wonder whether you can help me with some research. I'm looking into the Rev. Dr Zamekio Jackson and his St Thomas Christian College and Theological Seminary in Jacksonville, Florida. Jackson will be in Australia next week to confer an honorary Doctor of Divinity on one of Australia's most reviled fundamentalist pastors - Danny Nalliah of Catch the Fire Ministries. Is there any way of finding out: a) whether this is a legitimate place of education; b) whether they sell honorary doctorates; and c) whether as claimed in Nalliah's press release, Dr Jackson (who appears to have no more than a high school diploma) oversees over 300 churches in the USA? Your help with this would be greatly appreciated. Kristy.
Hi, and a friendly welcome to Dan DuPree
Very glad to have you here.
Welcome to this great Nexus meeting place and its thousands of bright people like you who recognise religion for the superstition and brainwashing fraud that it is---
and that gods exist only as fictions inside people's heads.
