Default Why isn't pork forbidden to Catholics?

Pork is forbidden for Muslims and Jews. Why is it that pork is not forbidden for Catholics?

Default Re: Why isn't pork forbidden to Catholics?

Because God revealed to the apostles that the dietary laws of the Old Covenant were no longer binding upon Christians (Acts 10:9-16). Paul stated:

Quote:
Therefore let no one pass judgment on you in questions of food and drink or with regard to a festival or a new moon or a sabbath. These are only a shadow of what is to come; but the substance belongs to Christ (Col. 2:16-17).
