Proof – if any were needed – that acting legally and acting decently are not necessarily the same thing.
When Clyde and Lesley Bevan were told the $6500 gold and diamond bracelet they had lost months ago had been found, they were delighted and grateful […] Their happiness turned into incredulity when the finder told them he now owned the jewellery […] He said he would give Mr and Mrs Bevan the bracelet but only if they made a claim under their insurance policy and gave him half the payout. […] The finder was a clergyman, the Rev. Terry McAuliffe, of St Paul’s Anglican Church in City Beach. — The West Australian, June 26th 2013
Proof also – if any were needed – that being a minister of religion is no guarantee of being a decent human being.

I couldn’t agree more. What an absolute jerk. So much for giving without expectation of something in return.
Sadly it’s the lawyer in him, not the Pastor, that came to this indecent decision to demand money. How disgusting.
