Quote:Pastor who stole more than $631,000 from AIDS charities claims he’s ‘entitled to it’

A New York City pastor is being charged with stealing money that was allocated to go to help HIV-positive drug addicts to use for Caribbean vacations and gifts for himself.

According to the New York Daily News, Bronx Pastor Reginald Williams, of the Charity Baptist Church of Christ, scammed nonprofit groups out of more than $631,000. Two others, Bennie Hadnott and Naomi Barrera, helped Williams and were charged with grand larceny in the Manhattan Supreme Court Wednesday.

"I'm entitled to it" just about sums it up.

Quote:Florida man writes anti-gay remark on bill, stuffs it down woman's blouse, police say

A Florida man was arrested after writing a gay slur on his waiter's receipt, then ripping it up and stuffing it down the restaurant manager's shirt after she confronted him outside, police say.

Frederic Sterry Smith, 62, of St. Augustine was charged with simple battery Saturday outside Milagro On 12 Latin Kitchen, in downtown St. Augustine.

Quote:Smith was unavailable for comment. His Facebook page lists that he's a minister and president of Servant’s Heart Disaster Relief, a St. Augustine-based nonprofit and "evangelical hands-on ministry devoted to helping hurricane victims in North America and the Caribbean."

Jesus must be so proud!

"I can say whatever I want, to whoever I want!" Smith told police, the report stated.

Note the previous link to the article about the Baptist embezzler, whose lawyer argued that he was "entitled to the money".

Are we seeing a theme here?

Often just a bunch of crooks.

I have personally known pastors who really believed what they taught and lived a humble life of service. Anecdotally, based on my experience (entirely with small churches) probably about a third of them are like that, although they tend to burn out on it and turn it into a slog that they expect everyone else to share with them. The other two thirds probably find some way to at least carve out a relatively comfortable niche for themselves, but even most of those are not outright grifters. They are more cynical manipulators who make themselves into arbiters of morality, and also, as they age, they realize they have no marketable skills and so there's a lot of motivation to go through the motions and get their retirement package.

I remember one pastor who was always on about how people needed to pray and study their Bible daily, getting up an hour early if necessary. I thought that was so out of touch that I just outright reminded him that he's PAID to read and study his Bible. He doesn't have to get up an hour early because his salary allows him to do that all the live-long day. It's the height of arrogance to demand that of people who have children and full time jobs and daily commutes and taxes with zero recognition of how fundamentally different that is from the life of a pastor, who can do all those "spiritual" activities without breaking a sweat.

I don't think I was his favorite parishoner after that exasperated outburst from me ;-)
