I suppose it’s not poetic justice, but it’s something rather similar.
“How dare you expect us to keep our financial commitments!”
Remember - these are the SHEPHERDS of the black churches. Is it any wonder blacks as a group vote for the most corrupt politicians who will promise them a handout?
I guess black-owned banks are just supposed to give their money away.

Maybe thats what happens when churches become feeding grounds for wolves and money-changers upon the temple steps?
The contractors and developers involved have presumably long since cashed their checks and left the McSheeple holding the bag... err... collection plate.
Any church that has to finance its construction via debt ought to reexamine its mission, its doctrine - and the historical record for what happens when folks reject the Law of their Creator and throw all their gold into the fire and worship what comes out instead of Him:
24 See, the Lord is going to lay waste the earth
and devastate it;
he will ruin its face
and scatter its inhabitants
2 it will be the same
for priest as for people,
for master as for servant,
for mistress as for maid,
for seller as for buyer,
for borrower as for lender,
for debtor as for creditor.
3 The earth will be completely laid waste
and totally plundered.
The Lord has spoken this word.

"Ooh say can you see..."
Is it any wonder
blacks RINOS as a group vote for the most corrupt politicians who will promise them a handout?
There. Fixed it.
And the expectation was what? That simple arithmetic does not apply to black bankers? Mathematics practicing Affirmative Action?
foreclosing on churches?????
