    Cue up all my anti-theist friends pedantically trotting this out as an example of religion versus science. Yes, alligators are taxonomically not fish.

    If you aren’t Catholic, why do you care what some Catholic prelate says about a dietary restriction that doesn’t apply to you? If you are Catholic, you’ve already squared the circle of non-overlapping magisteria.

    Alligator is rubbery and tasteless anyway.Report

    Per the Church, you can also eat beaver during Lent and have it count as fish.Report
