Right wing Christians are always banging on about how homosexuality is wrong "because the Bible says so".

The Bible also says that usury (charging interest) is wrong, but I don't see them protesting about bankers, stockbrokers, or any other financial parasite.

Am I missing something here?

Well the bible also says learning is bad, and I don't see Christians getting upset about broadening student's exposure to other ideas in Kansas!

Anyway, you may get a better reply from Poly, Newsmax, the KKK's website, or any other simialr site.

Yes, you are missing how they select which quotes from the bible they like and which ones they want to ignore.

It may be wrong, but they confess their wrongdoing each Sunday, so that's ok.

To be more serious, surely you'd expect the original documents to be evaluated from time to time to see if the authors really did get it right, in light of more enlightened times ? Christians are no longer bothered by that, I believe Muslims are still though, as the banks need to find work-arounds for them, so they can borrow, and pay for the service, whilst still claiming it isn't interest they're paying.

Each has their own particular view.

the bible also says that its shameful for women to have uncovered heads, presumably because we are such sinful witches that God would retch Holy puke at the sight of our evil hair from his white cloud. Men however can sport mullets and Hoxton fins guilt free!

As I find bald women very sexy, I can't understand it either.
