Eh, sort of.
First, you'd have to assume that sushi is somehow 'cleaner' than a fish from an aquarium. How is sushi 'sanitized' exactly?
Sushi is made with all different kinds of aquatic life so there's really no way to say how 'clean' it is in a general sense. And with spoilage concerns in mind, a live fish is safer than a dead one.
We don't know the condition of the fish or even exactly where they are coming from, so it's just speculation. There could be a debate on whether petsmart or whatever pet store really has disease infested dirty water tanks or not also. How do you know they have diseases? Disease ridden fish don't usually live long, and these businesses (for the most part) are not going to sit and let their stock die constantly because of disease. They pay for this stuff to sell it, so its like product in the trash can.
I've worked with and been in many many many LFS
and while I've seen my share of atrocities, they tend not to be the chain ones. Even if it were, does it make it any better if they get them from a well maintained LFS

I think it's a fratboy-esque thing to do by your church group, maybe you could voice your concerns and see if they'll do some other stunt? I hope you channel the frustration into that because it might have a positive result.
