Hey Eric, did you see what your prog city is considering?

Seattle Mayor Proposes Offering Sharia Law-Compliant Home Loans for Muslims.

SEATTLE, Wash. — The mayor of Seattle and his housing committee have unveiled a plan to increase housing in the city, with a portion of the plan proposing the offering of Sharia law-compliant loans for Muslim residents.

Among the number of ideas offered to make housing more affordable for Seattle residents is a segment that addresses Muslim beliefs, as Sharia law forbids usury for its adherents.

“For our low—and moderate—income Muslim neighbors who follow Sharia law—which prohibits the payment of interest or fees for loans of money—there are limited options for financing a home,” the proposed plan reads. “Some Muslims are unable to use conventional mortgage products due to religious convictions.”

“The City will convene lenders, housing nonprofits and community leaders to explore the best options for increasing access to Sharia-compliant loan products to help these residents become homeowners in Seattle,” it says.

  2. Yes, I’ve heard about it. Meanwhile, they’re suing and bankrupting Christian-owned pharmacies and bakeries for ‘being unable to comply because of religious convictions.’

    This city is run by complete nutcases…I wonder how hard it is to learn Russian…

    • Incredible, the brazenness of both their hypocrisy and their stupidity… To be fair, though, they may be too stupid to know they’re stupid and hypocritical. 😉

  3. I think that’s likely the case. If you’ve some of the actual public-works projects they’ve attempted and what the results have been, it’s obvious that sheer stupidity characterizes the local government.

    But then again, stupidity is a prerequisite for being a prog, too…

    • An interesting proposal; one challenge, though, is the stress we Christians, esp. Protestants, put on individual covenant children to make a decision for Christ; not that that’s wrong, not at all, but it does mean that young people raised in a covenant home have to realize that continuing membership in the covenant community will require a conscious decision on their part that yes, they do believe what they have been taught, wish to publicly proclaim it, recognize that it is both an individual prerogative and also a community of like-minded and their offspring (who likewise will have to consciously embrace it themselves, in due time).

      It seems, with some groups such as Muslims and Jews, that their communal ethno-religious ties to a higher degree than Christians are more important than personal faith. And yet they do manage to inculcate faith in their young people (well, Orthodox Jews and some Conservative Jews do; Reform Jews, not so much), though there increasingly are First-World-born Muslim offspring who claim one can be Muslim and a feminist / gay etc., like Irshad Manji and her ilk.

      We need to ensure, if we are to encourage a more tribal form of Christianity, that we still stress the need for an orthodox individual faith, as well as the communal aspect, lest we become like liberal Jews, and increasingly liberal Muslims, who have strayed from the ways of their forefathers by embracing the progressivism of their host society.

  4. Seattle did this just to piss off Eric. Because he said it was second worst after Portland.

    They’re gonna offer Eric to come to City Hall and express his citizen opinion and then they’re gonna laugh and do what they want. Maybe take pictures of him.

    Eric, flee from Seattle! :O)

    Cheers.
