My fault. Edit that: No meat on Friday. My grandma told me that it used to be strict. No meat any Friday. Then, they relaxed the policy to no meat on Friday during lent. Then I see everyone eating fish... which is meat. I still don't get it.


I don't know if it is meat(as in beef, pork, hog mauls and such) or a different catagory of meat like chicken, pheasant, black birds, and such, but if you ate it on Friday or on Wenedsday(during Lent), you were going to hell, period.


The various classes of "clean" animals was pretty detailed and exhaustive and wasn't simply a ban on "meat"--- If you read some medieval king arthur literature or a number of Breton Lai's, they all follow a similar narrative route: our hero is going through the wilderness during lent and comes upon a castle where he is granted entry and asked to join the lenten feast... This a feast that happens during a time of fasting, which is mildly amusing when the story goes on for three pages about every piece of food that laid out on this huge table... But they are all birds and fishes and cakes and so on... all appropriate dishes and each with their own special sauce.

Aah! Thank you. That does ring a bell. Maybe I should've paid more attention. How could one resist the special sauce?!

Laughing Laughing Laughing You guys crack me up!

I'm a bad Catholic...I really don't care about fasting, not eating meat, etc...It's so silly. If there is a God, why would he care about that?

I try not to eat meat a couple of days a week, bc I'm trying to be a part-time vegetarian. I'd love to become a vegetarian, but I lack the discipline to give up meat completely.

I don't think I could ever be a vegetarian, mainly because of ham. And there's no way I'm giving up seafood.
