A letter writer claims ("Hey, media: Economic sky isn't falling," Jan. 1) that the media caused the housing crisis by pressuring lenders to give subprime loans -- loans to people with bad credit, who couldn't afford them. This is big news! Predatory lenders with hearts of gold! Not wolves in sheep's clothing fleecing the flocks, but good guys led astray by the evil media.
It is true that some of the lenders prayed with clients before doing business, but Jesus said "Feed my sheep," not "Eat my sheep."
Those tempting low-interest loans were like snakes that could shed their skin at any time.
