In Disneyworld in '78 we did partake of snails and Frogs Legs. The French may have "seeming unusual" foodie faves, but they were delish, from what I remember.
My fist go at snails, ordering a plat du jour without really reading the menu. The entrťe was snail soup, it was delicious but not what I would order from choice

Having said that, that said I have eaten at Heston Blumenthalís Fat Duck a few times and ordered snail porridge once or twice.

Only had frogs legs once, in a Paris restaurant (you donít really see them on menus down south), again quite nice, I enjoyed them

This article says nothing about the religious or spiritual beliefs of the fans who committed this atrocity. How did you come to the conclusion that any religious group did this?
I dunno, Brazil is comprised of roughly 92% with a declared religion, of which 86% is Christian.

Do you really think it was the other 8% that don't specify a religion who were responsible?

Really?

If you are arguing for and prosyletizing it, then it is a religion.
There is no other reason for your passion about it.
Being a Democrat or Republican isn't a religion.

Advocating for clean resources or better food production aren't religions.

Urging people to drive safely or drink responsibly aren't religions.

People do many things that involve arguing for or "proselytizing" as you put it(a word you misapplied), and none of those are religions.

Noun: religion
1. A strong belief in a supernatural power or powers that control human destiny
2. An institution to express belief in a divine power

This is true. I concede that Brazil, as a Latin country has a very high population of people who self identify as Catholic (or other denomination) but it is the actions that betray their words. And I would say that those who did commit the crime were not practicing Catholics or Christians. If they were, then they're seriously misunderstanding the tenets of peace as taught by Christ.

OK, how do I contact your god? Presently, I am at a total loss. I am afraid that when I die I will descend to HELL. What are my specific steps to avoid such a damning doom. I have been good for most of my life. I was in Vietnam where I did some very, very, bad things. Aside from that, what do you suggest that I do in order to right things? I know of convicted murderers who are now Jesuit priests. What do you suggest for me, personally?
what does the bible say for you to do?
