Deep Fried in Something Icky

Sharing Options

“Paul is very plain here that we are to do everything to the glory of God, whether we eat or drink. But he tells us to do this in a manner that makes it very clear that we should be able to do this with a well-salted French fry, deep fried in something icky. If I am spending some time at lunch with a weaker brother (for that is what he is), I would pick him up a sandwich from the Food Co-op, and would not bring him a small tub of pump cheese fries from DeathMart. I would do this for conscience’s sake—his, not mine. The reason I wouldn’t do it for my conscience’s sake is that we are not allowed to have our liberty judged by the fussers and scruplers” (Confessions of a Food Catholic, p. 54).
