    HHAHA. Another funny story! I was eating dinner at the dorms with my friend and his Muslim friend. We were in line and he was asking "Hamburgers have ham?" And we go "No, no ham" and he kept going "You sure? Positive? You sure?" He kept insisting over and over for assurance until we had walked out of the buffet line.

    That does seem to be the case. Sometimes, I will cook a large pot of taco stew, spaghetti, or something that will feed a good-sized group, and take it to work for everyone. I work with several doctors who are Muslim, and I always make it a point to tell them it's beef, because they are devout about not eating pork.

    My religion doesn't have dietary guidelines. Only thing it really says is to eat and drink alcohol in moderation; I'm good at the second (my faith actually makes me drink more than I normally would) and working on the first.

    Re: Do you follow dietary restrictions imposed by your religion?

    Dietary restrictions always seemed more practical than moral to me. Given the problem with uncooked pork, it made plenty of sense to avoid it when holy texts were written. It seems harder to explain why god would deliberately create a tasty edible creature like a pig and then tell you not to eat it.

    There's no serious dietary restrictions to follow.

    I don't drink, but that's due to lack of interest.

    My religion doesn't have dietary restrictions, so I don't follow any.

    Kosher food can only be prepared in a Kosher kitchen. Separate sets of pans and utensils have to be maintained for meat and for dairy, and any items meant for use on one must never touch the other. Meat and dairy cannot be eaten in the same meal. And if the kitchen is used to prepare anything that is not Kosher, then it's no longer a Kosher kitchen, and nothing prepared there is Kosher.

    A strictly-observant Jew could not eat food from a restaurant that was not specifically Kosher.

    The meat/dairy thing is one of many examples where the Jews started with a law that God gave them, and then, fearful of accidentally violating that law, created layer upon layer of increasingly-strict “hedge laws” to keep them safely away from any risk of accidentally violating the original law, and then more “hedge laws” to keep them from accidentally violating the previously-established “hedge laws”, and so on. Thus, they got from “Thou shalt not seethe a kid in his mother’s milk.” to making sure that they never ate any meat and any dairy together, and that they never prepared or ate meat using any pans, dishes or utensils that had ever touched dairy, and never prepared or ate dairy with any pans, dishes, or utensils that had ever touched meat.


    As for myself, my Mormon religion prohibits the consumption of alcohol, tobacco, coffee, and tea; and although I cannot honestly claim, at this time to be a fully-practicing Mormon, I do strictly avoid these things. I must, however, admit to a caffeine addiction. The use of caffeine is significantly-discouraged by my religion, but not outright prohibited as long as it isn't in the form of coffee or tea.

    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    Re: Do you follow dietary restrictions imposed by your religion?

    As time has gone on, I have followed more and more of my religion's (Jewish) dietary restrictions. Currently, other than eating in non-kosher places, I follow them all (no pork, no shellfish, no milk and meat, etc...).
