Maybe someone can clue me in about eBay, a subject about which I know little. There aren't really people willing to pay $255 and counting to send this guy to church, are there? These bids were just made by people who are going to skip out when it's time to collect, right? I just refuse to believe that anyone would spend that kind of cash on sending someone else to church. I've never bought or sold anything on eBay, but I know a guy who tried to sell something stupid like this, and while a bunch of people placed bids, all the bids turned out to be bogus. I realize that eBay is a multibillion-dollar industry, but it just seems like a house of cards to me, and items like this add to that perception.

Think about it this way MDS, if you belong to a religion that judges you based on the number of people you convert and you are a busy and well-compensated person, $255 per soul sounds like a bargain compared to the amount of time you'd have to spend talking a non-believer into joining your faith.

MDS, Paul just sold a frickin Mark Belling bobblehead doll for $167.00. It's like 8 ounces of plastic shaped like the ugliest man I can think of. $167.00. People will pay big bucks for dumb stuff.

It'd take more than a ten spot to get me in the door of a church. $40 per service maybe. All the promises of open-mindedness and behavior goes for me, too. Cash only.

Whenever you give the government the power to do something for you, you also give it the power to do something to you.
