Well this isn’t looking good:

Press accounts make Cooper sound like the modern Episcopal version of a Borgia pope. He received compensation of $1.3 million in 2010, awarded himself the supplementary title of CEO, and picked out a $5.5 million SoHo townhouse for himself, paid for by the church. And his Scroogely actions extend well beyond stiff-arming Occupy Wall Street: he shuttered Trinity’s homeless drop-in center in 2009, then announced plans to borrow church money to build luxury condos on top of a palatial renovation of the church’s offices.
