    Not all types of Islam, Shia for instance consider it haram. Sunni will eat it, but its easy to trick them to note eat rabbits by saying they eat their own poop and are related to rats therefore haram.

    Why don't Americans eat horse? There's no religious reason, yet seems like such a weird cut-off

      Because they're considered companion animals, and because they are far less efficient at turning grass into meat than cows are.
      Mostly because of the friend aspect. Horses are some of the smartest herbivores, and the use of horses requires cooperation between the rider/driver, which often leads to mutual respect and a bond.

    Sure it doesn't really make any sense and is hypocritical and arbitrary, but I don't see how that's any different to western civilisation's values that come from Christianity, and are followed because now they're the norm regardless of whether or not you're Christian yourself.

                This is a good example too. Horse slaughter is illegal in the US because it makes horse girls feel icky. That's it. Those feelings aren't shared elsewhere, horse meat is readily available in most of Europe and even just across the US border in Mexico. But the feelings of horse people were put ahead of logic and horse slaughter is against the law. This is no more or less logical than not eating pige because magic book said not to.

                no, its perfectly legal to have an abortion if you got raped or the child is extremely fricked up and quality of life is so bad that death is a mercy (like some cases of really fricked up children in constant pain because canada is moronic and wont let the parents allow the child to die), otherwise if youre getting an abortion because you want to have unprotected sex, when condoms, spermacide, morning after pills exist, youre am degenerate woman, you shouldnt be having sex in the first place

                Multiple children in certain US states have been forced to carry fetuses to term after being refused abortions.

                There may be exceptions written into law, technically, but practically there are no exceptions. You can't get an abortion if your rapist hasn't been convicted of rape, something unlikely to ever happen. Even if your baby is fricked, some states ban it outright.

      Because most christian values are actually generic human values, and the uniquely christian values and commands are largely ignored by the "faithful" or don't actually exist in the bible

      You can find the exact same shit in totally distant cultures like asians that had never met a christian before. Sexual deviants are gross, killing without just cause is wrong, stealing is wrong, parents should be honored, etc.

      Also some things you probably think are christian values are not and were never, they were just assigned 'the bible agrees' status based on an >implication to make people feel better about changing traditions.

          Christian morals are derived from ancient proto-indo-european religion. You're not a true faith, you're a long ways down the grapevine from it, which is why the Real God does not talk to you anymore and all you have is some ramblings about what was probably some errant fire demon with a nice ass. Christians were never the only culture to forbid abandoning infants. Some tribes did, some tribes did not. Japan is notably a culture where it was never an accepted practice except in the earliest, literal stone age times.

      iirc most kosher rules revolve around avoiding cultural habits that existed at the time in Phoenicia. For example the ban of mixing meat and milk products came from an adjacent culture having a dish where they would cook a calf in its mother's milk.

      This is just a guess, but the other local tribes would have probably gorged on hog. Till this day you can find wild boar roaming in haifa (pic rel)

      Quality pork is very lean, dense meat. Also quite clean if raised like a premium beef cow. Why would it be seen as diseased then?

      The answer is pig toilets. Literally shitting into a pigs mouth. Nobody ever talks about it but this is likely why they thought pigs were cursed. They had the bright idea of using them as toilets at at least one point.

      This is similar to the semitic dislike of dogs. When someone died that they did not respect, they would simply toss their body on the ground around the city, and stray dogs would eat it. Therefore they decided the dogs must be cursed, and they totally werent the cursed ones for chucking their fellow mans remains to starving animals.

      Pigs are also one of the few animals that acts as a livestock-human disease vector and can carry diseases like anthrax. They also befoul water supplies, which if you live in the desert is a pretty big deal.

      The Pork Taboo has more to do with economic warfare against the Hebrew urban middle class in 7th century BC than anything else. Goats and sheep required more land and the elites controlled this grazing land, which meant they controlled the mutton and goat and beef supply. Pigs could live in styes in the towns and cities and could be kept on small freeholder plots. When the Northern Kingdom of Israel fell to the Assyrians in 720bc, the Judaean Elites blamed Israelite pork consumption (and not the fact that the Israelites had stopped paying tribute), despite the fact that ~60% of the livestock in Judaea were hogs at that time in history. They did this for two reasons, firstly, to distract from the fact that Judaea was still paying tribute to Assyria and didn’t fight to help their brothers, and second, to justify making life difficult for hog farmers in Judaea and thereby increase the value of their grazing land and product thereof.
