I think I asked a Hindu whether he’d ever tried Milka Choco Moo yesterday - did I accidentally commit a terrible religious faux pas?

TenGorillas - 04 Mar 2022 17:02:57 (#2 of 484)

That would be an ecumenical matter

Dementor - 04 Mar 2022 17:07:38 (#3 of 484)

I should say, it didn’t occur to me he might be Hindu until moments later - and then I thought it would make things worse if I acknowledged my error. Playing clueless seemed the polite thing to do.

They eat jellybabies, don't they?

Is that the follow up to They Shoot Horses?

See above - heh, very good.

I've had several Hindu colleagues who partook of milk - both British-born and Indian-born colleagues, at that. (One of them didn't eat eggs, but milk/butter/cheese were fine. Another was vegetarian within the normal English meaning of the word. And I've a feeling at least one other was fully omnivorous.)

Hindus in India eat plenty of curd.

This is the first time I've heard a Hindu being confused with a vegan. What percentage of Hindus avoid milk?

lammaMia - 04 Mar 2022 19:08:13 (#10 of 484)

Here's the official scientific answer courtesy of the Hinduism page of NHS.

Some Hindus will eat eggs, some will not, and some will also refuse onion or garlic; it is best to ask each individual. Dairy produce is acceptable so long as it is free of animal rennet, so for example the only cheese some Hindus will eat may be cottage cheese.

It’s so difficult to get paneer from every single supermarket these days.

On a serious note, how many people believe in transubstantiation these days?

Intowntonight - 25 Mar 2022 09:00:35 (#13 of 484)

But only on the Northern & Central lines.

RosyLovelady - 25 Mar 2022 10:08:34 (#14 of 484)

Ah, the substance and the accidents.

No idea.

On a serious note, how many people believe in transubstantiation these days?

Unless there have been some big changes in the Catholic Church, it's still one of their central doctrines, and you can't be a catholic unless you accept it.

thisonehasalittlehat - 25 Mar 2022 11:26:26 (#16 of 484)

I find it a bit icky.

thisonehasalittlehat - 25 Mar 2022 11:26:50 (#17 of 484)

And pagan.

Ebadlun - 25 Mar 2022 11:39:20 (#18 of 484)

And really quite silly.

OldLefty - 25 Mar 2022 11:43:16 (#19 of 484)

All perfectly logical.

A bloke in a frock says some magic words over some wafers to turn them into human flesh, before eating some and offering the rest to everyone else in the room.

He does the same with some plonk to turn it into human blood.

thisonehasalittlehat - 25 Mar 2022 11:46:28 (#20 of 484)

Why not just sacrifice one of the faithful if you want to go around gorging on human flesh?
