	Good point about tithes. I think that's the unfortunate vicious  
cycle, though. The conservative churches don't get support, so they  
end up losing out. But, conversely, how can you knowingly give money  
that will help the degradation of the church? It's tough.

	Part of me has actually considered seeking ordination in the PC(USA),  
since I do believe there is still hope in it. But, I lean EPC  
generally. My seminary is PCA -- lots of good folks in the PCA.
