The interesting thing is not allIndonesians eat dog. In fact, majority of them don’t. Only certain ethnics, notably the Bataks, the Manadonese and the Ambonese do. These are Christian areas. Muslims don’t even want to be anywhere close to dogs.
It's not special to Moslems.
I was trying to figure out why (insert REAL author’s name) would put the tidbit about him eating a dog in the book. You just helped me figure it out!
They must have put it in there as a subtle “clue” that he was a Christian in a mostly Muslim country.
I could be “barking up the wrong tree” (hee hee) but everything those SOB’s do has a purpose and I can’t think of any other reason why it would be allowed in the book...
Is it a stupid theory???
