From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An honorary degree or a degree honoris causa (Latin: 'for the sake of the honour') is an academic degree for which a university (or other degree-awarding institution) has waived the usual requirements (such as matriculation, residence, study and the passing of examinations). The degree itself is typically a doctorate or, less commonly, a master's degree, and may be awarded to someone who has no prior connection with the institution in question.
Usually the degree is conferred as a way of honoring a distinguished visitor's contributions to a specific field, or to society in general. The university often derives benefits by association with the person in question.
Recipients of an honorary doctorate do not normally adopt the title of "doctor". In many countries, including the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, and the United States, it is not usual for an honorary doctor to use the formal title of "doctor", regardless of the background circumstances for the award.
Some universities and colleges have been accused of granting honorary degrees in exchange for large donations. Honorary degree recipients, particularly those who have no prior academic qualifications, have sometimes been criticized if they insist on being called "Doctor" as a result of their award, as the honorific may mislead the general public about their qualifications.
In 1996 Southampton College at Long Island University awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Amphibious Letters to Muppet Kermit the Frog.
Well, not only Kermit the Frog has an Honorary Doctorate Degree but another amphibious The Piranha has one.
Wonder how much she paid for hers???
I wonder if Wikipedia would allow us to post a copy of the BB lawsuit papers?
Technically, Sarah is correct. It doesn't exist because they have ceased to call it COL. However, whether they call it "COL" or "The Church of Our Lady of Perpetual Abuse"... it is still the same thing. If it walks like a duck, looks like a duck, and quacks... it's a duck.

Wow, this is what COL should be chanting.
COL is gone? Where are people going to go that want to be abused, overworked, all their money taken, worship a false God, known as tae yun kim, and have to live the way she says to live? Now I bet everyone has to change their name again. What the heck. She can run, but she can't hide. Her true JUDGE sees everything she has done and everything she is DOING. She will get her JUST rewards.
To paraphrase Shakespeare - "a cult by any other name...................

I think that is something put together by one of TYK's followers. It's not objective and focuses on her supposedly youthful looks etc. I don't think it's from Asia either, more likely Fremont, CA. it's just too slick and the poster is simplistic in his assessment of her.

Revelations of the truth have apparently stirred up the hornet's nest over at COL and they're sending out some drones to sting back.
