The Dumbest Spam I Ever Received III

The first one was dumb. The second one was dumber.

But a couple of days ago I received an email with the subject line – I kid you not – Christian Home Loans. Christian ones! I guess they’re not in with that whole “fair housing” thing.

Moreover I wonder if this is some sort of sanctioning process – like Kosher food. Does God approve of these loans? If so, can you imagine the application process? “Which Ten Commandments have you broken? (circle all)”

How can we judge without the text of the spam?

what, do people think if they get a christian home loan it will be less sinful or something? we should get together and start a snail-lovers home loan company. i love snails:-)

Hmm. Wasn't there something about usury being evil and/or a sin?

So maybe they're offering interest-free loans. Now that I would be interested in.

I can hear the slogan already:

"Be saved from high interest."

ba-dump-pah! (cymbal strike)

"Other home loans can be hell."

ba-dump-pah! (cymbal strike)

"Resurrect your finances with a Christian home loan!"

ba-dump-pah! (cymbal strike)

"Our rates are heavenly."

(drum roll) ba-dump-pah! (cymbal strike)

ick for targeting religion (and not a rigidly defined one, either--do they mean the original meaning of Christian, or the other, appropriated meaning?) but at least it's funny too! An officemate got a spam saying "I saw you in church... and I liked what I saw!" :-D
Any male enhancement or porn spams going in this direction? that would be funny!
...
does the loan protect against repossession?

Monica: that's a great idea! Just think: "get a loan from us, and if they even think about reposessing, He'll get all old testament on them!".

Of course, it still won't protect you against eminent domain.



What is this then?
