Who cares? It's not like the church is running a pac or something. The priest's err in judgement is no fault of the congregation. This is not to say that the congregation should not take a long, philosophical look at the implications of an individual wanting to represent God or Christ that also wants to work toward furthering this nation's cancer... human imprisonment.

One good question, does this priest own stock in Corrections Corporation of America or any other similar fascistic criminal organization?

Tax the church. They don't deserve to be exempt.
