Trump compares the Bible to 'a great movie'

Real estate mogul and presidential candidate Donald Trump may not be considered the most Bible-thumping candidate in the GOP field. But during an appearance on The Brody File, which airs on the Christian-oriented religious television network CBN, The Donald heaped praise on the holy book.

"There's so many things that you can learn from [the Bible]," Trump told host David Brody. "Proverbs, the chapter 'never bend to envy.' I've had that thing all of my life where people are bending to envy."

Trump went on to make a rather secular analogy. "The Bible is special... the more you see it, the more you read it, the more incredible it is," Trump said. "I don't like to use this analogy, but [it's] like a great movie... You'll see it once it will be good. You'll see it again. You can see it 20 times and every time you'll appreciate it more. The Bible is the most special thing."
