The Catholic Church and usury…

There was a time when the Catholic Church was against usury… instead of being one of the main culprits in this crime…

Deuteronomy 23:19-20 (NIV) Charging interest (Biblical term “usury”) was allowed against non kindred nations because the practice is an act of war and plunder… We may war on those who war on us, responding in kind, but not upon our own nation…
… Do not charge your brother interest, whether on money or food or anything else that may earn interest. You may charge a foreigner interest, but not a brother Israelite, so that the Lord your God may bless you in everything you put your hand to in the land you are entering to possess…
