A Twist on Reparations

The Washington Post carried an interestesting article in its June 3rd edition of the religion section called "Episcopalians Consider Giving Reparations to Black Members." Now that's an interesting twist to reparations discussions.

Apparently the Episcopal Church is preparing to isse an apology for failing to oppose slavery in the U.S. Some involved in the planning for this statement also want to see the chruch take some action by paying financial reparations to African-Americam members of the Episcopal Church?

What do you think? Is this a worthwhile "twist" to an otherwise stale political debate? Or, is this a "twisted" approach to the reconciliation we have in Christ and the "reparations" he paid to the Father for our sins against Him? Thoughts?
