The article was not very clear how the embezzlement occurred. I certainly see no problem with using a personal credit card for purchases and then being reimbursed, that is if you're reimbursed dollar for dollar and no more. It seems like a small perk to be able to build up some airline miles. Any reimbursement in excess of actual expenses is wrong and should be punished.

Stealing the car and charging the maintenance to the church was the crime.
