    Not a good poll, I really have no religion..... a faith.. yes....
    The poll should only be for those who do....have religion...

Everyone on this forum knows that im an atheist and i think religion is pretty stupid, but if you do choose to follow a religion why not follow what seems to me the simplest task of them all?
    What i always found funny and eye rolling is the amount people that do not eat meat on fridays for lent. They look at me funny when i do or become very stern if im eating meat or suggest getting meat. But yet these same people cuss, fornicate, drink, cheat, smoke weed, talk about women or men like sex objects, watch porn etc etc etc

    Its just amazing sometimes how hypocritical people are and how they use religion as a tool for judgment instead of a tool for self peace. Oh well to each their own.

    I just always think to myself if the rules are that strict, with all they stuff they do or dont do, eating or not eating that burger is not going to be the decided factor LMAO

    Your thread made me think of Mrs. Bloomers in NYC. Perhaps if the Mayor started his own religion, more people would follow his food and drink bans. All praise the Bloomster.

    I believe that all major religions are for the weak and/or the ignorant and/or the desperate...there is no way I would let a religion dictate to me what I should or should not eat.

    I suppose that answers the question.

    Basically you can't eat meat and dairy at the same meal. And I'm pretty sure that Kosher places can't even prepare them at the same at the same place, but that might be an Israeli thing.

    Well form what I have seen that's only first generation immigrants, I have seen plenty of Muslims eating Baconators in Wendy's and pork chops in restaurants.

    As a gentile Christian I am not obligated to follow any dietary rules, other than not knowingly consuming blood, or meat from an animal that was sacrificed to pagan gods.... which I follow of course.

    I was raised Lutheran but have slowly moved away from religion. Really dont follow any "restrictions" when there are some.
