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.
Isn't it enough for the PCUSA to be pro Hezbollah in mist of all the other problems the Presb. churches face today.
I think the liberal leadership is trying to dissolve the Presb. church, people are leaving at the rate of 50.000 per year.
I left two years ago and will not return until my local church dissociates itself from the PCUSA.
You have probably identified the real reason. Of course the fund will have to be surcharged for its share of allocated costs. I wonder how many full time equivalents are 'supporting' this ministry at the headquarters and field level.
