It was OK for the USA to pay its debts with cash.
In contrast, an episcopal church in Aptos, CA recently said in 2016 that its not acceptable proof to run for church board for a member to give CASH as a means of donating to the corporate body.
So Obama can pay USA debts with cash but cash given to a church does not signify an acceptable ‘donation’.
The Junior Warden of the church stated [one of three Vestry persons on the Nomination Committee] that it was the interim priest and the senior warden who made the decision. The interim priest and senior warden have not been contacted.
The Bylaws clearly state that it is the decision of the Nomination Committee as to who is on the list.
So, what’s wrong with CASH? If good enough for Obama to pay USA bills isn’t CASH good enough as a donation to a church?
See Section 2.A. of the Bylaws which state that the Vestry may establish a requisite minimum level of contribution to the Parish (no less than six (6) months prior to elections.
***** Per the Bylaws that were operating when the applicant applied, the Vestry of this church had not established any level of contribution.
Back to Obama and his CASH. So who counts Obama’s BILLIONS in CASH given to Iran? Nobody of course.
Back to the applicant for episcopal church board in 2016. Why not believe what other church members who say (and put in writing) i.e., that the applicant in question regularly contributes cash? Does it matter how much or to what fund?
The widow’s mite? If an applicant gives a penny, dime or a quarter every time they come — that’s a regular contribution.
What did Trump say to millions? Trump said again and again that the system is rigged.
One way to ‘rig’ the system is to tell potential Episcopal church board applicants that CASH does not count — and therefore you cannot stand for election from the floor. The Bylaws sent by email to the Parish do not say that identifiable money must be paid in order to run for Vestry.
In the past, there have been a number of issues that relate to communication. Why cash given to a church does not count is one of them.
