I'd say definitely reapply, especially now that you've had a chance to take a breath. I don't know myself (I'm an engineer), but my guess is that they're trying to keep moles from getting in and queering the security among those priests, pastors, etc. who are still flying under the radar (a VERY delicate issue, my guess).
Again, best wishes, and if there's anything I can help with here on A|N, don't hesitate to give a shout!
Greets, guy! I read about your current status as a member of the clergy learning of his atheism and while you may already have heard about it, I guess I wanted to be sure you were aware of The Clergy Project. For someone in your position, I would hope TCP would be some level of help for you.
