Your Beliefs or $50,000?

How strongly to you hold your beliefs? Would you betray them for $5,000? What about $10,000? What about $1M? Watch the clip in this post. As you watch it, think about how much it would take for you to bend your beliefs just a little bit. And then, if you’re so inclined, read the rest of this for my thoughts.
Update: That lady was on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Nov. 30th (tonight)! She revealed that she went on the show so that she could get the gastric bypass surgery and she knew about the money beforehand (her insurance denied her the surgery) but she was going to share part of it with family of course. She honestly didn’t seem all that ultra-religious when she appeared on the show and she explained that the other family was nice but they weren’t religious enough for her. Apparently there was a bobble head doll that sold for like $800 on Ebay and it turns out it was Jay who bought it (or a staffer) and he presented it to her. A fitting end.
