← Locked Out: How the Church Responded to their Pastor’s Coming Out

I wonder, how much of this "locking the doors" was a result of;
1. Anger?
2. Fear?

                        3. Financial?<br>
                        4. Other?

I suspect that more then a few of these "good folks" were genuinely afraid. After all, if even their local clergy can be swayed by, what in their minds constitutes the "devil," then how can they hope to combat it/him? They don't want to get sucked down the same path.

I suspect the largest reason was simply financial. Who among their flock is willing to toss money into the offering plate now?
