Of course, this set off the usual debate about whether eating meat is morally justifiable, including "arguments" that Christianity prohibits eating meat. Of course, that is not true. Not only is that a fabrication, it is a blasphemous heresy and a doctrine of devils. People who advance this damnable lie should repent or risk eternal damnation in Hell. The so-called "jesus" these people worship is a false god that has nothing to do with the Jesus of the Bible.
Once this damnable blasphemy is rightly dismissed, Zuckerberg's behavior is something that could be emulated. He is doing this as a personal challenge and character-building exercise. In an age where self-control is almost nonexistent, taking up any challenge that forces you to discipline yourself is a good thing. So this has me thinking - what challenge can I take to discipline myself and build character? It is a valuable question to ask.
A reasonable level of civility is expected. While it is expected that controversial political and social issues may generate heated debate, there are common-sense limits of civility that will be enforced.
This blog is a family-friendly site. Therefore no cursing, profanity, vulgarity, obscenity, etc. will be allowed. This is a zero-tolerance rule and will result in automatic deletion of the offending post.
Anonymity has greatly coarsened discourse on the Internet, so pseudonyms are discouraged but not forbidden. That said, any direct criticism of a person by name cannot be done anonymously. If you criticize someone, you have to subject yourself to the same level of scrutiny or the comment will be deleted.
All moderation decisions are final. I may post an explanation or I may not, depending on the situation. If you have a question or a concern about a moderation decision, e-mail me privately rather than posting in the comments.
