Whatever that is said here is not true at all. I just verified With the white house secretary as I am a friend of hers.
I'll echo the question... Which secretary was that? And what exactly did you verify? That they received an award, how awards are received, who applied for the award... what?
I started getting interested in this church after seeing them on National TV news getting high praises and appreciation from people around the world.
So which "National TV" news featured the wmscog? The Today Show? Good Morning America? CNN? ...
Pls stop lying, such ***you are writing about the Cog applying for their own award?
It's not lying. Just look up information about the award. That is how it is given--you keep records of your service and then apply for the award. It's supposed to go through an "official certifying organization" but it is all on the honor system, and any organization can apply to be an official certifying organization and then apply for awards for its volunteers. As long as you are an official certifying organization, you can order all the awards you want and tell them what name you want printed on them (even blank awards and write a name on it). The organizations are trusted to be honest with the awards, but there is obviously potential for misuse.
So did they also apply to be on National news? Pls stop your lying ***here, the admin of is site or whoever u claim to be!!!! Gosh!!!
Maybe they did "apply to be on National news". It's possible that they asked for the station to run a story about them, or conveniently gave the station a tip about some of their community service projects or something. We can't know without asking the station. But again, which national news show? And did they present a balanced view of the wmscog?
