Cuz I'm not Catholic!
I was raised catholic but am still gonna eat meat...as Chris Rock says, "On the day of judgment, I fail to believe my diet will come into question."
God damn I can't wait to get home and get high..
My wife is catholic. Its fun eating meat in front of her the past few Fridays.
At the risk of sounding Ig-nor-rant, WTF has eating meat on friday got to do with being catholic?
I usually will eat meat any time it's placed in front of me! But I'm not catholic either.
something about lent and easter i believe
Not to start a religion thing again, but how can any religion essentially ban one from doing anything, let alone a petty little thing like eating a scrumptious piece of used to be animal, savory meat. MMMMM yummy, yummy meat!
vegetarians rule!! im not a catholic,but i never have to worry about this.
Isnt vegetarian an old indian word for bad hunter?
I am Catholic , most Detroit Pollacks are .
I can eat meat , kill people , rape women , steal from girl scouts , curse at old women ........
...... and then just sit in a little box and ask forgiveness
I knew it!!!!
This sums it up...because they can. Religion and government do that. Don't like it? Don't join it. At least that seems to be the attitude.
true true....im far from a church person i go when there is a wedding or funeral.
and we eat meat tonight!! more ribs lots more ribs if someone told me I could not have my steak. they should be more afraid of me then going to hell
It's just a ritual, that's all.. ( not eating meat on friday )..every belief system has those, and some follow them more tightly than others..
Personally, I'm not catholic, so the only dietary restrictions I follow are those imposed on me by my wife..
Interestingly, rituals like that are partial reasons why evangelical christians and catholics don't like each other.... many christians feel that since jesus died for the sins of the world, rituals that "prove" one's holiness here on earth are irrelevant and not at all required of believers.
On the other hand, these same non catholic christians will also point to certain levitical laws ( the one against tattoos,for instance ) and hold them up as conditions of righteousness and salvation, forgetting that jesus's sacrifice made those irrelevant too.. my baptist friends hate it when I point that out..
It's not just giving up meat, It's about giving up somthing you like. It could be anything from meat to sex, just depends. The meat thing just seems to be the easiest thing people think of.
How about if everyone gave up church instead of meat?
