    What exactly counts as mixing dairy and meat? Isn't milk naturally stored in giant meatsack otherwise known as a cow?

    The only faith-based dietary requirements I have is to not consume blood or participate in occult worship feats . Since I don't want to anyway, its not an issue. Acts 15:28-29

    However, there's another side to the dietary code that you might find interesting. Christians are instructed to eat anything offered to them as guests when in a foreign culture. The implication is people could be offended if you reject their food and could thwart an opportunity to establish a relationship. Then there's the added advice to to ask what it is to keep from wanting to hurl. If you don't know you're eating cats and dogs...everything tastes like chicken anyway.

    I use to live in a place where people ate the entire fish, heads included. I couldn't bring myself to do it but I don't recall anyone offering fish heads to me as a guest, just things you see on you plate when at local restaurants. The people know statesiders get freaked out by fish heads so they aren't offended.

    I absolutely do. Christianity forbids killing other people for food, and so I have always made sure that they were killed for other reasons instead.

    Any religion that says you cannot eat pork is wrong.

    As an avowed, life-long Hoppist, I follow the one simple dietary law my religion has laid out for me.

    No beer before breakfast.

    i was raised Catholic, but for most of my adult life, i have been practicing my own religion privately. that being said, a couple years ago, i started following the meat restriction on Fridays during Lent. not sure how that happened, but it just sort of felt right.

    Yes and no.

    My demonination does not have dietary restrictions. Therefore I don't follow any, but I also follow all of them to the letter without fail!

    Yes.

    1 Timothy 4:4

    4For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be
    received with thanksgiving:

    Acts 11

    6Upon the which when I had fastened mine eyes, I considered, and saw
    fourfooted beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping things, and
    fowls of the air.

    7And I heard a voice saying unto me, Arise, Peter; slay and eat.

    8But I said, Not so, Lord: for nothing common or unclean hath at any time
    entered into my mouth.

    9But the voice answered me again from heaven, What God hath cleansed, that
    call not thou common.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
