Everyone in their right mind knows that the student debt forgiveness scheme is nothing more than a desperate act by an unpopular president to buy the votes of millions of people who made the irresponsible decision to borrow money from the government to get a degree in a field of study that would be essentially worthless in helping them repay the money they borrowed for it. It’s really that simple and Christians, of all people, should know this.
But one Atlanta pastor is saying the quiet part out loud as he urged his congregation to remember this wealth redistribution scandal at the polls in November.
“I don’t have any student loans,” Terrence Merritt, pastor of The LIFE Church in Atlanta told his congregation, “but anybody with any ought to be rejoicing that God removed some debt today.”
“I don’t understand,” he continued. ” People are upset. They said, well I paid off mine. That’s cause you could. Hallelujah. And you ought to thank God you had the ability to do so.”
“But some folk are having a struggle, and God has given them help. So thank God for the help. Hallelujah. Somebody ought to go into the comment section and say Lord I thank you for the help.”
“Now they’ve capped how much of your income you can pay towards the student debt,” he added. “Now somebody is going to be able to buy the house they want.”
“So all of you young people who’ve been blessed, all of you who got student loan debt, that you’ve been blessed today,” he said, “don’t forget that in November.”
