Seattle Appeases Islam With... Sharia Compliant Mortgages?!
I can't even.
"Sharia," which comes from the Koran and means "the right path," prohibits the payment of interest -- the primary way lenders earn. Many of Seattle's 30,000 practicing Muslims, therefore, are hard-pressed to find Sharia-compliant financing options when buying homes, making large purchases or starting a business.
A Seattle housing committee suggested community and business leaders find a way to help them, a push the mayor endorsed. Seattle is just the latest to explore financing options for devout Muslims -- following in the footsteps of Chicago as well as national financial firms and lenders like Bank of America. But the move to offer Sharia-compliant financial products has drawn fire. Critics have warned that it opens the nation's financial system to Islamic radicals and terror groups, providing a mechanism for money laundering.
There are any number of things you can find offensive about that. Feel free to sound of in the comment section . I just want to throw out what I find is the most offensive...
The same Pacific Northwest, the same area of the country that wants to bankrupt Christians because they politely refused to bake a damn cake for a gay wedding...wants to give Muslims a sweet deal on a mortgage, because their "religion" prevents them from paying interest.
I just checked for verification and... yes, homosexuals are still crucified, burned alive, or thrown off buildings wherever Sharia law has been implemented.
