Hey, hey--capitalism at work?

Bible Belt Blogger: Mega-salaries for mega-pastors:
"Megachurch pastors aren't just storing up riches in heaven. They're also reaping substantial blessings here on earth, according to 'Your Church' magazine.

The typical salary for a senior pastor of a congregation with average attendance of 1,000 or more is $111,052, 'Your Church' reports. Associate pastors at these churches typically earn $71,000. Music directors average $66,581.

These salaries include wages and housing allowances, but exclude other benefits, the magazine said."
