Somethings are best left unsaid

Since the economic crisis, a certain house of worship has been aggressively expanding their presence in New York City which also includes a membership drive and fund raising. During a recent service it was proudly announced that because of the personal pledges of certain high ranking members of this house of worship, they were halfway to their fund raising goal. This was no small feat especially in this economy since their goal is in the 8 figures.

Their objective of the announcement was to encourage more people to donate and that these numbers proved the economy was not an excuse.

Unfortunately this bit of news may have the opposite effect because at least one section, when the collection baskets were passed around, they were noticeably bare.
