Of the Congregationalists from the North American continent who prospered while settling Hawaii, writer James Michener once observed, "They came to do good and they did very, very well."
When this conflict of interest was exposed and Reed was embarrassed by The New York Times, the former Christian Coalition director's consulting company said in a statement, "We should have been more sensitive to possible misperceptions, and it is an error that we regret."
