Evangelicals Named To Ministry Watchdog Panel

The Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability has announced members of a commission to advise a Capitol Hill review of financial reform of religious groups.

Secularists, however, say the panel’s all-evangelical leadership will be unable to police other evangelicals.

Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, asked the council to lead an independent review of “self-reform” of religious organizations after he concluded a three-year probe of alleged lavish spending by six major broadcast ministries.

On Wednesday (April 13), the ECFA said the 15-member panel will include:

– Oral Roberts University President Mark Rutland

– Campus Crusade for Christ President Stephen Douglass

– megachurch leaders Joel Hunter and Bishop Kenneth Ulmer.

Sean Faircloth, executive director of the Secular Coalition for America, criticized the choices.

“Stacking this so-called ‘independent’ commission with people representing only one narrow religious viewpoint is entirely inappropriate,” he said.

I’m sure Grassley was able to raise some re-election money, but what were the results of his THREE-YEAR study?
