    Word of Wisdom is clear. It says to eat meat sparingly and in times of famine. As a member of the LDS Church I look to that for dietary guidelines I do not need the latest fad diet to tell me how to eat. Remember moderation in all things.

    We don't need to coucheth it up in old timey language. Common sense tells us not to eat too much, don't waste what we have, and steak tastes good.

    "And whoso forbiddeth to abstain from meats, that man should not eat the same, is not ordained of God;"

    "Remember moderation in all things." A saying that doesn't even make sense, which is why it's found nowhere in scripture.
    "And whoso forbiddeth to abstain..." Another nonsensical statement that had to be clarified with a footnote in the '80s ... And, even after that doesn't contradict the three scriptures that say meat is permitted only to prevent starvation.

    If people want to eat meat, that is their choice. But I don't understand the jokes that go around, such as the overly used "People Eating Tasty Animals". That just shows disrespect towards animals, especially when some of them do not end up on your plate in the most humane ways.

    I agree that sometimes there are animal groups that go to extremes to get their points across, which only ends up hurting the animal rights cause. But no doubt animal rights groups are needed as long as there are people who are cruel and inhumane towards them.
