I find it very interesting that, just days before Lent, the leftists including Oprah have begun pushing this “1 meatless day a week”.

Thanks for the post and ping. Was not aware of this. Their interest in such a program is purely vain, to slim the body, whereas the christian fast is intended to strengthen the soul. Major difference.

No, their actual interest in such a program is earth-worship, Saving Mother Gaia. Remember, cow-farts cause global warming and meat is speciesist.

I agree with you, in fact I was just having similar conversation with my kids about fasting and Lent, but it’s almost as though they (Oprah) decided, “let’s make it “meatless Monday” to detract from the tradition of fasting on Fridays for Catholics. They could have just as easily made it Friday, but they chose Monday. The timing is just odd, a little too coincidental.
