Templeton renounced his American citizenship

A real role model for today's corporate types. No understanding that some things are worth more than mere money.

"What does it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his own soul."

Brilliant Investor but also a bit wacked out, like Soros or some of the others.

Wasn’t he the first benefactor of the Heritage Foundation? I think he was one of the few Billionnaires who funded conservative think tanks. May God welcome him into heaven.

Templeton renounced his American citizenship in the 1960's and moved to the Bahamas.

Make sure he is buried in the Bahamas...

“Templeton was known for funding religion and science projects, donating millions to religious leaders, scholar, and scientists “

Kind of looks that he might have known where to permanently store his riches US citizen or not.

IMHO, he sure beats the H-E-double toothpicks out of one of the other
“Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People (Time 100)” on the issue
of investigating spirituality: Deepak Chopra.

But hey, I’m a Western-European Descended bigot so I guess that comes
as no suprise.

for reference:
John Templeton
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Templeton


In 2007, Templeton was named one of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential
People (Time 100) under the category of “Power Givers.”

Templeton was given this honor for his “pursuit of spiritual
understanding, often through scientific research” through his establishment
of the John Templeton Foundation.[11]

One article I read decribed Templeton as a “devout presbyterian.” Given the modern day PCUSA one has to wonder what exctly is a devout presbyterian. That being said based on what I’ve heard and read he seems like he was a good and decent man with an eternal perspective.
