There was a big fuss recently in Sweden about lasagna and burgers containing horse meat. Sweden is atheist heaven, and so there shouldn’t be any hard and fast table manners—other than “if it tastes good, eat it.†So why aren’t cats and horses on restaurant menus in most countries? It’s because Judeo/Christian nations base what is right and wrong to eat on the rules God gave to the Jews. But if atheism has its way, we can expect restaurants to expand their menus to include eagle-wings, double-double whale burgers, fresh cat casseroles, and tasty little kitten fingers. When any nation forsakes God, it defaults to mob rule (what society dictates) and that can go anywhere it wants.

I am rolling over here. Where does anyone GET this stuff? Athiests don't have table manners? Just... what?

Mmmm, delicious kitten fingers. You know it takes several litters' worth to get a decent meal, cause those fingers are tiny. :dance:

Interestingly, the big fuss was in England (although it might have happened in Sweden too) which is a country with formal, organized religion. Although the CofE is probably ungodly in his eyes, too.

Actually, the problem was first identified in Ireland, where 84% of the population identify as catholic and the rest are mainly other Christian denominations or Muslim. As an atheist in Ireland, I can safely say I've no desire to broaden my diet beyond chicken, fish, beef, pork and lamb.

Funny, considering most people I have worked with in animal rescue (ie, people who care about animal welfare and many of whom are veggie or vegan) are agnostic or athiest. They are also overwhelmingly liberal (of course that is not to say there are no Christians or conservatives, this is all anecdotal). But um, yeah. Liberals tend to care about regulation, rules and welfare of those whom cannot stand up for themselves, so I am not quite sure how he is getting that athiests hate eagles lol

This guy is a moron and has no clue about what is eaten and has been eaten around the world. I personally know people who have eaten dog, cat, horse, and possibly mouse.... or they know people who have eaten mouse. Heck, I eat snails.

Would these be my preference? No, but I'm sort of a boneless skinless chicken breast and filet of beef kind of girl.

As a meat eater, I recognize that meats people choose to eat is based on what is locally available and how hungry people have been. The man appears to be an idiot.

This was just baffling. I don't understand his logic at all.

I wonder if he considers the popularity of bacon in the US as a sign of forsaking God. We haven't gone to mob rule yet, at least.

Clearly, this man does not have a solid logic so he is just appealing to emotion. Pathetic.

I've heard that the French eat bunnies because of the rampant Catholicism. The communion wafers make them taste yummy. :roll:

(psssst, when did choice of food merge into "table manners?" He should have kept that gem for when he was making xenophobic comments about cultures that eat with chopsticks or their hands.)

Almost all Christians ignore the Torah food rules though (Seventh Day Adventists are the only ones I can think of that don't)? Pretty sure many Christians in America love their pork and shellfish. The problem with the horsemeat thing is the lack of labelling, I personally don't object to eating horsemeat (honestly I'll try any kind of meat) but people should know what is in their food.

Great googly moogly. My mom grew up during WWII, and she remembers seeing horse meat in the grocery stores - and you were thankful to get that because of the food rationing and the scarcity of meats and other luxuries such as sugar and whatnot during that time. What an idiot.

Im an atheist and I would never eat cat, dog (or anything commonly kept as pets) or any endangered species. I also eat with a knife fork and spoon and use a plate like most people.

Ray Comfort is an idiot. The horse meat scandal has nothing to do with godlessness and everything to do with fraud.

When he ran a page just for atheists, some of the posters wanted to know if Christianity was so wonderful why did countries like Sweden and Japan have less violence then the United States. Comfort never answered but he probably jumped at the chance to take Sweden down a notch.

The problem is big business cutting costs not morality.

There is no moral or ethical reason not to eat a dog or cat. The reason we United Statians (that really should be the name of our people :lol: ) don't eat those animals is because we view them as companions and not food. However, pigs are said to be very intelligent and bacon is still popular in our country.

I would try dog in another country if it was offered to me. Kitten fingers just don't appeal to me though.

People in countries like Ghana and Liberia (as well as tons of others) eat dog and cat meat regularly, yet they are also predominantly Christian.

Nothing about Ray Comfort will ever be as hilarious as the banana monologues, but he's still an idiot.

Does this guy have any brain cells at all? What makes eating a cow or a pig ok but eating a horse wrong? As long as the meat is regulated and labeled, there's nothing wrong with eating something other than fish, shellfish, chicken, beef, or pork. Hell, I've eaten emu, impala, zebra, crocodile, alligator, guinea pig, shark, and deer. And I ate them all with a knife and a fork all the while chewing with my mouth closed.

Tsk tsk. If you were a bible-believing christian you wouldn't be eating pork.

Sadly kitten fingers are nowhere near as tasty as baby. Love me some baby.

That explains the atheist mob that gathered in my down last night demanding their double-blubber whale burgers and fried kitten fingers! I was wondering what in the heck was going on. Thanks, Mr. Comfort!

(BTW: I threaten to eat my cats' tasty little toes all the time, particularly when they're lounging on their heated perch too sun stupefied to put up much resistance to my playing with their paws. Good times. :D )

I am an atheist and as far as table manners are concerned, I could teach Ray and many others for that matter a thing or two about that subject.

Where I live, there's regularly horse meat and rabbit, along with pig brains, kidneys and liver, on the grocery store shelves...in a traditionally catholic area. I think food taboos are more cultural than logical, and I don't have rigorously thought through positions on why I eat beef, lamb, chicken or pork but have not yet tried horse or rabbit. I mean, a sheep is just as nice an animal as a horse, and it's not like we east animals based on their likeability anyway. But saying food taboos are based on Jewish food laws is just nonsense, if you eat pork or shrimp. (edit...pressed the submit button by mistake!)

Well, you can't throw that out there without a link. I'm not going to google, I don't think my heart could take it.

I've eaten all sorts of "taboo" animals, including horse, but never cat or dog. I would consider it if I were traveling in an area where it was the cultural norm (such as the circumstance in which I ate horse). I do often threaten to eat the cat's ears and head, as she loves to nap with said body parts directly underneath my mouth:

Vegetarian (who prefers to eat vegan) agnostic here, with impeccable table manners at that. Has Ray Comfort's head exploded yet? (Please say yes.)

      I've been away since about 10 PM on Monday evening.  My husband noticed that my speech was a bit slurred, called my daughter to see if she concurred and they both agreed that I needed to go to the hospital.  There I was taken back within minutes to be evaluated for a stroke.   My BP was sky-high. I. undressed and was helped into a hospital gown.  The PureWick did not work that night so when I had to go I just went.  (I do want a PureWick if I ever get urinary stress incontenence though and would need to wear diapers.). 
      I had a CT scan fairly early the next morning and it confirmed that I'd sufffered a mild stroke,  I had an MRI that afternoon which confirmed the both the mild stroke and no other damage and yet I had another CT scan -this time with a contrast medium injected.  I was allowed the Heart Healthy diet and my BP had dropped to 180/100.  They don'y want to drop the BP too rapidly so it has dropped enough to turn to Lisinipril to drop it further.
      After the ER. I was sent to the ICU and stayed until I was discharged this afternoon.  The staff were all really nice and my husband and two daughters were with me most of the time, helping out.  My oldest daughter's van was in the shop so I let her borrow the MINI since I knew she could drive a stick.  When she was visiting yesterday afternoon, her husband was in the ER waiting on a CT can and today, she was there when the speech pathologist was visiting.  She was able to get some good advice from her as her husband is currently unable to swallow.
      Anyway I'm home.  My dogs and the cat to see me home, especially my dachsie, were happy to see me home.
      A couple of things I learned:
      I need to teach my husband about loading the dishwasher.
      and 
      Jill would never be able to handle bedpans.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.
