Why are people upset that she stole from a church? It's no different than stealing from any other business.

Any type of stealing is bad, but when somebody is entrusted to handle money that belongs to other people and then uses it for themselves, it betrays a special type of trust.

I'd imagine members of the congregation gave believing that the money would be used for the collective good...if these charges are true, hundreds of people were robbed and their faith betrayed. If you don't agree with that "Oh Please" then I don't know what else to tell you. You are certainly entitled to your opinion.

What I'm saying is that just because a theft is from a church, doesn't make it any worse than any other theft.
And go look up what some of the pastors around here make. Then you will see who the real thieves are.

I guess I see what you are saying. I am thinking of it as being more from a public/group trust angle than from a religious angle. I'd say the same for somebody accused of taking money that they were handling from retirement investment funds for people.

I'm certainly not here to defend excessive salaries for pastors.

Money from the gullible just going into her pockets instead of the preachers. What's the difference?

I applied and applied there and didn't get an interview even though i was more than qualified. No one seems to want to hire anyone that TRULY wants to work an honest job. kharma.......id have loved the job and worked hard for the Church
