EAST MONROE REZONE
Church leader is in it for the money

To the Editor:
So the saga of church and money may finally come to an end. (“Is it over?” April 13 Tribune)
I hope so. It was a sorry spectacle.
On the legal side, why the people of Monroe haven’t filed a RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations) lawsuit against Heritage Baptist Fellowship, Thomas Minnick, ex-mayor Zimmerman and all the others involved, is puzzling.  The whole unseemly and squalid affair was right out of Chicago’s bad old days when corruption ruled the roost.  The only thing missing in Monroe was the guy in a pin-striped suit with a .45-caliber pistol stuck in his belt.
On the moral and ethical side, how can a church be so at odds with its founder and still survive is a wonder.  The so-called “Reverend,” Thomas Minnick, seems to be far less interested in saving souls than in making money.  When it comes to a Baptist Church’s guiding principles, the New Testament is supposed to say it all, right?  Well, then, let’s consider Matthew 6:24: “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.”  
May Pastor Minnick choke on a dollar bill.
