This is Sean Whalen (prion).

Jason, thanks for addressing the issue of the object at the center of
the sun in tBotNS, but I still know a black hole, of any size, would
absorb the whole of the sun in a few seconds.

At the Schwartzchild radius, the outer edge of the black hole, matter
is drawn by gravity toward the center at the speed of light, and thus
nothing can escape from this distance.  At greater and greater
distances from the center, matter is drawn toward the center at slower
and slower speeds, but as the hole absorbs the matter right next to it
while in the sun, it grows larger and its gravitational force grows as
well, in a self-feeding cycle that only ends after all of the sun's
matter has been drawn into it, which occurs more and more quickly as
it absorbs the matter right next to it at almost the speed of light
all the time, and it's surface area increases the more it absorbs. 
Don't forget that the sun's own gravity is drawing all it's material
inward towards the center without any help from the black hole. 
That's why the sun experiences fusion:  the matter of the sun is
pulled toward the center by the sun's gravity with such force that the
atoms fuse together and produce energy. With a black hole at the
center, all of the mass that would be fusing would be drawn into the
hole almost immediately and would continue to be drawn into it at an
increasing rate as the hole's size and gravity increased.  This
(w)hole process would take only a few second to occur.
