love offering
 n.— «Grassley said there have been complaints about the pastors’ extravagant lifestyles and questions about whether the churches’ tax-exempt status is being abused. That includes the personal use of Rolls Royce cars, private jets and multimillion-dollar homes. Grassley is also looking into exorbitant salaries, so called “love offerings” or cash payments to ministers.» —“Senator Probes Megachurches’ Finances” by Kathy Lohr National Public Radio Dec. 4, 2007.
