As an atheist I have no views whatsoever on usury as it is a different category.

As someone who calls himself Onyx8 here, I think usury is an exercising of power for personal gain and is undesirable, and eventually self-defeating in a society. It is one of the reasons why government is unfortunately necessary. People with a little power over others will strive to increase that power until someone wins the game of monopoly.
