Thank goodness we are no longer under the Levitical law anymore, though a few of those things, like gossip, certainly are a violation of the New Covenant as well, as is homosexuality (Romans 1).

 Explanation for what? Ancient Jewish law, or the fact that modern Christians have chosen to focus only on specific ancient Jewish laws found within the Old Testament? Because I can't explain either.

Homosexuality is the old testament.

The bullshit. The picking and choosing of what rules we follow from the old testament. Very hypocritical!

I can explain the kosher food laws to you if you really want. It's not very exciting though.

 Everything you listed is in the Old Testament. When Jesus came a new covenant was made. I'm sure this has been explained before. Thought I'd put it out there for those that wonder why Old Testament rules and laws are not longer followed.

 Who cherry picks what rules to follow?

Proposition 1: Strictly speaking, the New Testament says nothing at allabout homosexuality.  
        There is not a single Greek word or phrase in the entire New Testament that should be translated into English as “homosexual” or “homosexuality.” In fact, the very notion of “homosexuality”—like that of “heterosexuality,” “bisexuality,” and even “sexual orientation”—is essentially a modern concept that would simply have been unintelligible to the New Testament writers. The word “homosexuality” came into use only in the latter part of the nineteenth century, and, as New Testament scholar Victor Paul Furnish notes, it and related terms “presume an understanding of human sexuality that was possible only with the advent of modern psychological and sociological analysis.” In other words, “The ancient writers . . . were operating without the vaguest conception of what we have learned to call ‘sexual orientation’.”1 (In the rest of this article I shall use the terms “homosexual” and “homosexuality” strictly for the sake of convenience.)
