Loaning money to blacks who can't pay it back is part of the reason why the economy is in such trouble. If all blacks withdrew their accounts before 2009 that bank wouldn't have needed a bailout.

no..it is actually because your Aunt slept with your Uncle and created you that the economy is in trouble. You are a filthy,ignorant piece of toilet waste and go back to where you came from.....which is the Memorial Adolf Hitler Birthday Boy Blog. Besides that, like all ignorant people, your IQ is dwarfed by a grazing milk cow. Try again on the 8-15 yr old site.

Yes that's part. The other part is how much we pay for them to be housed in prison. But I really don't mind paying for a black person to be in prison.

Hopefully the banks will foreclose on ALL the chruches that are in default. The country will be better off and some one can put the buildings to good use...like running a whorehouse.

Since 2010, 270 churches have been sold after defaulting on their loans, with 90 percent of those sales coming after a lender-triggered foreclosure, according to the real estate information company CoStar Group.

In 2011, 138 churches were sold by banks, an annual record, with no sign that these religious foreclosures are abating, according to CoStar. That compares to just 24 sales in 2008 and only a handful in the decade before.

And the foreclosurers my add fuel to the fire for More churches are now joining the movement as a way to observe Lent.

NYTimes: And [Rev. Ryan Bell] has committed his congregation to one other religious obligation. He is withdrawing the church’s money, several hundred thousand dollars, from its account with the Bank of America. By the April weekend when Christians mourn Jesus’ crucifixion and celebrate his resurrection, Mr. Bell said, he will have moved the assets to a local bank as a protest against Bank of America’s role in mass foreclosures and to issue a call for its repentance.

“To right the wrongs of the world is as much a part of the Lenten experience as to repent ourselves,” Mr. Bell, 40, the pastor of Hollywood Adventist Church near Los Angeles said in a phone interview this week.“During this season, when we individually are examining our lives, we think it’s appropriate for the institutions that affect us to examine theirs.”
