    when it comes to extracting money from the flock.

    I've heard of one who claimed the whole congregation-wide tithe for himself. Building funds, the power bill, pew hymnals, everything that wasn't his salary? Second passing of the plate, every Sunday. Multiply that insisted 10% by twenty or thirty families...

    He and one preaching family I know of in the same area probably skew the data for their county's ministers by quite a bit, and the area is by no means short on churches.
