Payments from here to eternity
Winston at nobody asked... gets an email comeon for a "Christian mortgage," and certain questions just naturally come up:
- Most importantly, does claiming to be a Christian give an applicant a lower price or rate?
- What kind of documentation is required to prove that claim?
- Are all brands of Christianity treated equally? Do Catholics get a better shake than Baptists?
- Are these products also available to non-Christians? Religious discrimination?
- If I get one of these mortgages and later convert to, let's say, Judaism, am I required to forfeit?
- If I am late with a payment, am I treated with compassion and tolerance?
I wouldn't bet on #6.
I figure the concept is probably legit I mean, they have, for instance, financial services for Lutherans but the use of spam techniques automatically lowers one's credibility by 99-point-something percent.

Who notarizes a Christian mortgage?
Maybe it means they can raise a dead credit rating?
Don't these people READ thier Bibles?
Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for he who loves his fellowman has fulfilled the law.
I guess that knocks me out, because I've looked over my debt, and it's definitely outstanding. Superlative, even. :)
