I herd a rather weird accusation from an anti catholic recently. He stated that at some point in the Middle Ages that the church taught it was sinful to eat with a fork. I think this was because it resembled the devils pitchfork.
After I finished laughing I explained that the church never taught such a thing but it may have been possible some misinformed but well-meaning priest may have said it at one time. Pointing out that it does not mean the church ever officially taught it.
Has anyone ever herd of this before? Anyone else have any information on this? Josh
