Do you think it is a good idea for the Church of England to become a moneylender?
Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, has declared war on Wonga. Stating that the Church needs to shut-down payday loan companies by operating and promoting lending through Credit Unions.
Now, considering that Jesus turfed the moneylenders out of his Fathers house, is it not hypocritical for the Church to now become moneylenders themselves?.
God bless the Church of England for trying to shut down a legal version of loan-sharking. These payday loan people are the lowest of the low, preying on the desperate straits of their fellow man. Our United Methodist Church (your distant cousin) has a credit union that is depositor driven; offering a better rates and lower fees for its members-including many congregations as well as individuals. And all the money changing goes on under the watchful eyes of the SEC and FDIC-not the church.
