    How do you know meat wasn't sacrificed to a pagan god?
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    I assume he takes peoples' word for it. Considering how rare it is for meat to be sacrificed to a pagan god in this country, and that people who sacrifice their meat to pagan gods tend to brag about it afterwards, it's a pretty safe subject to trust people on.

    Boy, you got me there. I once sacrificed a relative's guinea pig to the pagan god of peace and quiet.

    I don't, in point of fact. However, according to St Paul it doesn't really matter unless you do it knowingly as something forbidden.

    Other. As far as I know, my religious beliefs have no dietary restrictions, other than not eating "long pork" and I have no desire to try that particular meat.
