Edward MacKenzie, Jr. once provided muscle for mob boss Whitey Bulger, and later became the operations director for a Boston church. However, he apparently couldn't understand that collections in a church wasn't quite the same as collections on the street.
The feds have charged MacKenzie with racketeering for allegedly "systematically loot[ing] the church of its considerable financial assets through a combination of fraud, deceit, extortion, theft and bribery" as reported by The Associated Press.
MacKenzie chronicled his mob years in the 2003 memoir Street Soldier in which he expressed "get[ing] sexual pleasure out of breaking the bones of other men" as reviewed by John W. Dean for The New York Times.
In June 2012 MacKenzie wrote in the church's newsletter "I believe that salvation and redemption come to different people in different ways" as reported by Akilah Johnson for The Boston Globe.
Maybe the poor soul just needs to pray a little harder next time around.
