Christians do eat horse. Visit France and you will see horse butchers in every other street.

Are you saying all other religions eat horses? Sorry but i'm a bit confused or maybe I just missed the point?

maybe they will now that the practice of butchering horses and processing the meat in processing plants has been okay'd. There apparently was a ban on processing horse meat up until recently.

As for me..I'll stick with my veggies

As far as I know, there is no christian statement that christians can't eat horses. I think it is generally accepted that a horse just shouldn't be eaten as they are much more useful alive. I however, would eat a horse without a second thought if it tasted good. Never tried horse meat.

Here is the Ten Commandments on horses and why Christians do not eat them:

I. Thou shalt have no other gods before Horse.
II. Thou shalt not make unto Horse any graven image.
III. Thou shalt not take the name of the Horse in vain.
IV. Remember the Day of the Horse, to keep it holy.
V. Honour thy Horse and thy Horse.
VI. Thou shalt not kill Horses.
VII. Thou shalt not commit adultery to Horses.
VIII.Thou shalt not steal from Horses.
IX. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy Horse.
X. Thou shalt not covet a Horse for the eating.


So, you see, it's really quite obvious when you take a look at those.

In the early days (thousands of years, so many, many days) they wanted to be distinguished from the pagans, so that's why...


If you are talking about today's christians, who cares..? It would be best if they ate each other...

It's because horses are related to Unicorns

The decision whether to eat it or not has nothing to do with religion.
It is a personal preference.

So i guess it is true, there are no standards when it comes to the conspiracy in religions forum. All i have to do is add some religion in the title and its cool. I bet if this would not fly in any other forum
UFOs and Aliens- Why don't UFOs eat horses
Social Unrest- Why dont we eat the 1%'s horses
Political- Why does Obama not eat horse

Romans 13:1Every person is to be in subjection to the governing authorities For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God.
2Therefore whoever resists authority has opposed the ordinance of God; and they who have opposed will receive condemnation upon themselves. (NAB)

Its banned in most states. Why do you ask? If you are referring to Levitical law, these were for the Hebrew people. The law was the guardian of mankind until faith.

Galatians 3

23 Before the coming of this faith,[j] we were held in custody under the law, locked up until the faith that was to come would be revealed. 24 So the law was our guardian until Christ came that we might be justified by faith. 25 Now that this faith has come, we are no longer under a guardian.
26 So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, 27 for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

Further, the NT states this:

Romans 14:15
If your brother or sister is distressed because of what you eat, you are no longer acting in love. Do not by your eating destroy someone for whom Christ died.

1 Corinthians 8:13
Therefore, if what I eat causes my brother or sister to fall into sin, I will never eat meat again, so that I will not cause them to fall.

This was Paul setting an example and not prohibiting the eating.

1 Corinthians 10:27
If an unbeliever invites you to a meal and you want to go, eat whatever is put before you without raising questions of conscience.

1 Corinthians 10:31
So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.

Colossians 2:16
[ Freedom From Human Rules ] Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath day.
