It appears that the liberal church group wants to hold on to some of that money that they raised for disaster relief. If anyone in the afflicted areas still needs some help in about 7 years, they can ask for some help then.

Or if you are a church, just turn over confidential financial records on contributors, and get some funding now.

Anyone want to speculate what will happen to any unused money (or accrued interest) at the end of the 7 years?

How much interest will $14.4 million accumulate at current rates?

The mainline protestant churches have a lot of unemployed leftist pastors hanging around. By stretching out the distribution of the Katrina money over 7 years, the PCUSA can keep more of these leftist ministers on the payroll for a longer period of time.

It would be informative to know what the Methodists and the Episcopalians are doing with their Katrina relief money.

Ah my beloved PCUSA - my wife and I are members here in Tennessee because it is sort of a mission field. This money will indeed be used to fuel the leftist causes expoused by the leadership; they are not going to send it South unless they know for certain it will be used to propogate their agenda. This has become a hate Joos / pro-homosexual / pro-abortion / anti-faith denomination at its highest organizational levels, showing little difference from the Democratic Party in its policy statements.

As such, it attracts quite a few busy bodies and intellectuals, but there are people at the local level who are trying to bring about change. Though the PCUSA does fund many relief efforts and continues to send out missionaries who are Spirit-filled, the post about the leadership holding the money despite a pressing need in the hurricane regions does not surprise me...

I think the group has other motives like depositing the money in interest bearing accounts or maybe just spending it for their own needs.
