So why are Christians not banning interest bearing loans??

Usury: Leviticus 25:35-37

If one of your countrymen becomes poor and is unable to support himself among you, help him as you would an alien or a temporary resident, so he can continue to live among you. 36 Do not take interest of any kind [a] from him, but fear your God, so that your countryman may continue to live among you. 37 You must not lend him money at interest or sell him food at a profit.

Homosexuality: Leviticus 18:22

Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable.

It's the NIV but I don't think that's what you meant ;)

I bring this up with people who say I can't be Catholic/Christian and bisexual all the time. They hate it. The truth of the matter is that Christian Bible scholars have basically thrown out all these Old Testament "morality codes" as invalid in the current culture; so if people are going to rag on homosexuality from a Biblical perspective, the least they could do is stick to Paul's rants in the New Testament. ;)
