hmmm, guess it's not the economy [ECUSA]

Guess what, now and then ECUSA does have the guts to buck a social trend!

Too bad the latest trend they seem to be bucking is a five percent increase in charitable giving during 2004 reported by the American Association of Fundraising Counsel (the mysterious editor of this humble blog thanks a mysterious correspondent North of the border for the link).

That's right, while ECUSA was happily trying to explain away a 12 percent decrease in giving to the national church during 2004, everyone else was contributing to "a new record for philanthropic giving in the United States."

"Well", you say, "maybe it was that darn Tsunami that skewed the numbers." No can do partner. Truth is that, "contributions made in 2004 for relief after the December 26 tsunami that devastated the regions surrounding the Indian Ocean are a very small portion of the estimated total, less than one-half of 1 percent."

Well, I don't know about you, but I'm just speechless. It almost seems like ECUSA was "obfuscating" or some other big word that means not really giving us the whole story about their financial issues.
