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."

I don't quite understand your point. Are you saying that Mr. Templeton lost his soul because he renounced his American citizenship? Where is that in the Bible?

He said his investment record improved after he distanced himself from Wall Street and no longer worried about the tax consequences of his decisions

Since we are a nation of immigrants, who left their home countries in search of a better life, do you have the same opinion about all of our ancestors? It appears one reason Mr. Templeton left this country was because he found more freedom elsewhere. Sounds to me like he valued freedom more than geography, like many of our ancestors.

If America didn’t have one of the worst Tax systems in the world he wouldn’t have had to renounce his citizenship. More people should revolt against our disgusting, unfair tax system.

Do you know anything of John Templeton? He may not have admired our tax system, but he certainly understood that there are things greater than merely having money. His donations have helped church groups, educational groups, religious studies, scientific studies, and he has generally been an extremely admirable man.

He was a good Christian, and used his money to help others. It might help to look a bit more into a man before accusing him.

Implying any righteousness in the US tax system is silly. Are we serfs, that we do not have free will to ever change our tax masters?
