There's some discussion starting on the usury article...

At the Argus Leader link in the earlier post.

The objections so far are red herrings (or are they red walleyes? red lutefisk? I dunno I'm an immigrant here). Basically, "What kind of false Christian are you, rejoicing in people losing their jobs?"

The fact is, the credit card people said that massive job loss would result from restricting their usurious practices. But the "lost jobs" are mainly reassignments, positions eliminated after retirements and some early retirement buy-outs.

It is a bum economy and people are hurting. But that's not an excuse for making money by means disapproved of by God - means that in fact place terrible financial burdens on others.
