If you see a Catholic eating meat today …

leave them alone.  Today is actually a solemnity and the normal rules concerning fasting from meat during Lent do not apply.  To read the actual canon from the Code of Canon Law, check it out HERE.

  1. Jeremy,

    I am sure that I will leave catholics alone for eating meat, but I am not so sure about that one celebrity who claims to be a vegetarian and pose for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.

  2. @David thanks, you too.

    @rod once again a pop culture reference lost on me.

    @gez I think it use to be burning in hot oil ;-). But nowadays I imagine it would have a lot to do with the person’s intent. I doubt it would be considered a grave matter.

    1. A Baptist is probably okay, but if you see him with a Methodist you must chastise him most strongly because Methodists are in league with the devil ;-).

      PS – I know you can see this Joel.
