    much the same thing I find disturbing about combining a profit motive with the faithful. Much like Amway targeted Church Goers back in the 70's and the 80's. And other Pyramid type business models do today focus on Churches to help sell their products. I get queasy when prophit margins are based on Church fellowships making churches less like churchs and more like country clubs. To me its a lot like the money changers in the temple.

    Hmmm, well it didn't seem that disturbing to me; but I'm just one guy. :thumbsup:

    Disturbing because I suspect that buying a new car would not be a good financial move for these people . . . or for most people who can't write off the cost as a business expense.
