nowfedup, aka Mr. higher education than the rest of us, have you taken into consideration the part of this article which says, "Brown said because the company wasn’t seeking out customers, but instead allowing customers to come to his payday websites." No one is going out seeking out the "least fortunate" in America and making them apply for such loans. These "least fortunate" seek THEM out to receive loans. I think big boys and girls are able to make an informed decision as to who they want to receive a loan from, wouldn't you agree? Thus, willing individuals who choose to take out these loans will pay interest back to a company with the freedom to spend its profits as it so chooses- aka- to save lives both in this country and several others. Stole from Peter to give to Paul? I think not! Perhaps you are the one who ought to be seeking out higher education.
lcoffey1, I'll let the folks from Rossville respond to your ridiculous comment about them. In reference to your comment regarding this businessman using "religion" as a way of deceiving people, you couldn't be further from the truth. This man has used the profits from his business to build and support orphanages around the world, feed and clothe thousands of starving children, sponsor several organizations, including one which reaches out to people in various crises such as abuse and suicide, just to name a few. I would venture out to say that this man gives more money away than he keeps. His charitable giving has nothing to do with "religion" nor is his business about deceiving people, it's about spreading the love of Jesus Christ. Unlike most businesses and businessmen you read about in the headlines, this man walks the walk. His reward is in heaven and in nothing here below. May God bless and continue to use Him despite these false allegations.
