I wonder where they got that money from? I'm sure it was from the always present "building fund" offering that comes up every service. :rolleyes:

Summerville pastor, wife charged with arson, released on bond

(Summerville) May 3, 2005 - The pastor and his wife charged with arson in a fire that gutted the Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church last week have posted bail.

The Reverend Harold Hunter, 55, and Patricia H. Hunter, 55, each met a $50,000 bond Tuesday during an appearance in town court.

Thursday's fire followed three earlier acts of vandalism at the 64-year-old church. Police had suspected they were inside jobs.

Police say they found gas on the pastor's shoes and on clothing in the Hunters' home. :o

No one was hurt in the blaze.

Hunter's attorney, Eduardo Curry, did not immediately return a telephone call from The Associated Press seeking comment.

Hunter had been pastor for three years
