Procedural posture: 
The chapter 13 trustee objected to confirmation of the debtors'proposed plan. The basis for the trustee's objection was that the debtors have scheduled monthly charitable contributions, in the form of weekly tithes and offerings to his church, while only paying unsecured creditors approximately one percent of their claims over the life of the plan. The trustee also moved for dismissal of the case pursuant to 11 U.S.C. § 1307.
