Some Catholics Are Eating Plant-Based Burgers to Avoid Eating “Meat” on Fridays

Friendly Athiest:

For Catholics who celebrated Lent yesterday, they’re also supposed to abstain from eating meat on Fridays until Easter. (Hey, don’t ask me to explain religious logic.)

But that rule raises an interesting question: What if a practicing Catholic eats a plant-based burger?

I love the tag for this article: “Give them credit. They found a loophole around Catholic dogma.”

According to some Catholic leaders in Chicago, at least, eating an Impossible Burger still breaks the spirit of the religious law. […]

Still, it’s not like most Catholics give a damn about what the Church says.

True dat.
