Odd Finds: Jesus the Moneylender

Dictionary.com (the ultimate resource for all things word-like) defines “panderer” as: a person who caters to or profits from the weaknesses or vices of others.

Meet unitedfaithmortgage.com: “Your Lending Advisor with Biblical Values.” Whatever the hell that means.

Do you want to prove you’re a real Christian? You don’t want to go to a place like Chase or Citibank or Valley National or anything that seems relatively non-insane; you want to go with Jesus! I mean, you crazy Christians know no more honest person than Jesus, right? Well, we clearly have him on our side. It’s right there in our URL! We loan money the old fashioned way: we pray for it. Or something.

The irony, as I see it, is that didn’t Jesus kick the moneychangers out of the temple or something? I mean there is all sorts of anti-Semitism and horrendous stuff that comes out of this scene in the bible and this is how these idiots decide to pander to Jesus-freaks and wackjobs?

I mean they seem soooo legit with their off-the-shelf Website template and pages filled with really obvious stock photography. But what will their sheep think when they realize that the people they are trusting with that mortgage are in fact the same people they loathe? What’s next: mychristiangaybar.com or mychristianabortion.com or mychristiansciencefair.com. Absolutely ridiculous.
