I decided to be heretical in more than one way. My first heresy is i am getting ready to eat "beef" (you will get why the quotation marks in just a moment). And to be honest, having never been Catholic I am not bothered. But my wife and oldest son both did the whole Catholic catachysm, etc. So they still try to nervously hide their guilt.

The second heresy is against ATS: i am eating "beef" with my McDonalds meal. Yup....the Cthulu of Cuisine: a Big Mac. And I even supersized the fries.

If anyone wants to say anything about it, that other Big Mac is gonna get it, too!

Not much info here but I read this while eating a bacon toasty

You can use Kosher salt to make bacon.

I'm gonna burst into flame for sure, boss... but the kosher
thing isn't going to happen to any cut of porcine flesh unless
the Big Guy opens up a slot in the clouds around here and says
"That which I have said is cool IS" this one time. And I ain't Noah.
Or whomever got the Word.

Back to the thread, that burst into flame thing for me tonight
is all but one slice of a meat lover's cartwheel clone from a
different small dive-- and some penance watching Cavizel
getting most of his skin removed after a short conversation
with Ziggy Stardust. And don't hurt Maia-- I love her. [Mel's film]

I don't go for pagan rituals-- because somebody trying to tell me
the anniversary of The Christ's resurrection is on the
first Sunday after the first full moon after the Spring Equinox.
That somebody is also welcome to the business card of that
doctor in my wallet... for it is more needed than by myself.

Just the same, I am no beast. And the thing makes me tear up.
Because to a believer in noble ideas, the religion is irrelevant.

EDIT:: Yes..yes there MUST be I-sausage AND bacon on my slab. If anything in
my domicile is sacred on any Friday it's Grease and Sodium. Guilty your honor.
edit on 3-4-2015 by derfreebie because: Why is this night the same as any other Friday?

Wife is buddhist and can't eat red meat, but it didn't stop her from taking me to a BBQ for good friday. Talk about torture... the mouth watering smell of perfectly cooked steaks permeating through the house, and here I am stuck eating fish and chips because I was the only christian dude there and as far as everyone knew, Friday was just another generic public holiday.

So far, I've never eaten meat (other than fish) on a Good Friday and not for religious reasons either. It's just been about respect for my mum and because it's a tradition from childhood.

Yesterday was a killer as I had a craving for bacon and egg for breakfast and had to settle for mackerel instead. It's not like my mum would ever know and I doubt that Jesus would care what anyone eats anyway. I guess it's just one of those tiny sacrifices for showing respect and honour.

Naturally breakfast today was full English (bacon, sausage etc)
