No sympathy for greedy

Concerning our latest local alleged Ponzi schemers and investors: Call me cold-hearted, if you like, but I have no sympathy for anyone (especially “religious” anyones) who would greedily pad their wealth off the backs of working poor people.

Payday loan shops are predatory, not unlike Mafia-type loan sharks. The difference being (as far as I know) they don’t break your bones if you can’t pay.

I remember reading somewhere that Christ kicked money lenders out of the temple.
