Your money is no good here...

Here's a story about a church that refused a $600,000 donation from a member who won it playing the lottery. Turns out that the church doesn't support gambling, and presumably it doesn't want to accept money that's not gainfully earned.

Two thoughts:
- It's great to see a church stand on principle like that
- Makes me wonder why my church accepts donations from sociologists. ;-)

I think the church should take the $600,000.00, the Devil's had it long enough!

It would certainly be hard to turn down. The article interviewed several other pastors who pretty much said that they'd take it.
