VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York August 22, 2017 at 11:24 am The EPPN is funded through our contributions to our local church. If you look at just the Episcopal Migration Ministries staff costs (2016-2018 budget) there are 30 employees at a cost ov over $6M/year. This is just one department. Then there is the Office of Govenment Relations which handles public policy and advocates for the laity to call their congressman for progressive issues like eco-justice, refugees resettlement, immigration and even issues over seas like the Palestinian problem. These people have nothing to do but stick there nose into goverment business and we pay them to do it. If you like it, starve yourself and keep contributing if not then stop or don’t complain about the political activism of the Episcopal Church.

I will pray for them to have the strength to reject politically motivated ecofascist pressure and junk science. Jobs, low taxes and cheap energy are the antidote to poverty, malaise and suffering.
