Some members of a bankrupt Orange County, Calif. megachurch are expressing outrage after fielding an email request for congregants to deliver food to waiting limos so that it can ferried to the founder's sick wife. The appeal comes weeks after a lawsuit charged that the founder of the Crystal Cathedral house of worship, Rev. Robert Schuller, and his family had been paying themselves lavish salaries and other benefits while the church was in financial straits.

 

"They've completely depleted the church's funds," one member, Bob Canfield, told the Orange County Register. "But they  have shown that they have absolutely no remorse for what they've done.  They're still being chauffeured around in limos. We, the congregants, have nothing".

An email sent recently by Crystal Cathedral administrators said that Schuller and his wife, Arvella, "would appreciate meals over the next three to four weeks." It added: "They are to be sent to the church in order to be  transported to Arvella. The limo drivers could pick up the dinners or  meet in the Tower Lobby around 4:30 p.m."

Arvella Schuller has been suffering from pneumonia, and the email asked that the food be low in sodium and include items such as fruit, meat, soup and eggs.

Crystal Cathedral Ministries filed for bankruptcy last month. A lawsuit filed by creditors alleges that the Schullers borrowed more than $10 million from the church's endowment fund, and used it for salaries and regular church expenses.

"R.H. Schuller used his control and influence to cause the [cathedral] to enter into the agreements that benefitted himself and his family, to  the detriment of the creditors and in breach of his fiduciary duties" to  the church, the suit charges.

A spokesman for the church, John Charles, said the food request was in keeping with the church's commitment to Christian charity. "As Dr. Schuller always says, 'Find a need and fill it,'" he said. "I think that's what we were trying to do here."

But Canfield sees things differently. "These are millionaires who have limos and chauffeurs," he said. "Why  in God's name would they want the congregants to deliver meals? It's  ludicrous."

Not conflicted at all jimma. It's what I've been saying all along. Look at his megachurch, look at all that tax money he got to keep so he could be a millionaire-who knows how many times over-and then tell me that only republicans could have made him, or all churches, that rich. Oh but he's helping the needy!!! Uh huh. You democrites can thump that bible right along with the republicans. I have NO idea what his political leanings are, I don't care, I think it's funny as heck. Ahhhhhhhhhh, tell the peasants to put the food in the limo for the queen!!!

Anyone with a grain of sense who has seen Schuller and his greedy family on the abominable Trinity Broadcasting network should know that this guy is a full-fledged phony.  His congregants have no one to blame but themselves for the disasters that have befallen that absurd megachurch.

I know seeweed, shameful isn't it that a family thinks more of themselves than to lay around doing dope, smoking and drinking while ******** at the government to give them handouts, plenty of them, and keep them coming.

Why single him out? This is what they're all about. Some make it big, some have to settle for being a big fish in a small pond. But it's all about the $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.

I don't know what caused your brain damage. Maybe the last time you were reincarnated they left out a few parts of your brain.

I answered you jimma. You're a silly little twit that can only make silly little posts. You're a non-entity and I treat you as such.

How do you explain yourself then jimma? Are you the best the democrites have to offer? I'd say yes because their standards are so low they don't even register on the "standards scale". I have no idea if shuller is a republican or not. At least I'm not in here taking up for him, whereas you take up for any crime, low down dirty tactic or scheme any democrite does. So if he is a republican, so what? I say again, those preachers/churches couldn't get as big and rich as they are if only republicans supported them.

And there we have it, the best jimma can do. I think you've been scrambled/reincarnated once too often. If you go through it again you're going to be a soybean.
