[Deuteronomy 14:7-8] But of those that chew the cud or have a completely divided hoof, you are not to eat the following: the camel, the rabbit, or the rock badger. Although they chew the cud, they do not have a divided hoof. They are unclean for you, as well as the pig; though it has a divided hoof, it does not chew the cud. It is unclean for you. You must not eat its meat or touch its carcass.
ANSWER: This law was made by Moses for the Jews only and not for all people. Christians are living under the law of Christ which is the New Covenant. Unknown to Islam and Christian sects who accuse the Catholic Church of violating this dietary law, the Old Covenant (Judaism) was already canceled by God since the Israelites broke it. And He made a New Covenant (which was brought by Jesus to Earth) for all people. This New Covenant or Testament is everlasting, thus no more covenant will be made, or no more churches will be founded after the Catholic Church;
PROPHECIES ABOUT THE COMING OF THE NEW COVENANT;
[Jeremiah 31:31-32] “The days are coming,” declares the LORD, “when I will make a New Covenant with the people of Israel and with the people of Judah. It will not be like the covenant I made with their ancestors when I took them by the hand to lead them out of Egypt, because they broke my covenant, though I was a husband to them,” declares the LORD
[Jeremiah 50:5] “They will ask for the way to Zion, turning their faces in its direction; they will come that they may join themselves to the LORD in an everlasting covenant that will not be forgotten.”
[Malachi 3:1] “And the Lord, whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple; and the messenger of the covenant, in whom you delight, behold, He is coming,” says the LORD of hosts.
THE PROMISED EVERLASTING OR NEW COVENANT WAS FULFILLED BY JESUS;
[Luke 22:20] In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.”
[Hebrews 9:15] For this reason Christ is the mediator of a new covenant, that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance–now that he has died as a ransom to set them free from the sins committed under the first covenant.
WHAT ENTERS THE MOUTH CANNOT MAKE A MAN SINFUL, BUT THE WORDS THAT COME OUT OF HIS MOUTH;
[Matthew 15:11] “A man is not defiled by what enters his mouth, but by what comes out of it.”
[Mark 7:18-19] “Are you still so dull?” He asked. “Do you not understand? Nothing that enters a man from the outside can defile him, because it does not enter his heart, but it goes into the stomach and then is eliminated.” (Thus all foods are clean.)
GOD JESUS MADE THE PROHIBITED ANIMALS CLEAN FOR MAN TO EAT;
[Acts 10:13-15 ] Then a voice said to him: “Get up, Peter, kill and eat!” “No, Lord!” Peter answered. “I have never eaten anything impure or unclean.” The voice spoke to him a second time: “Do not call anything impure that God has made clean.”
CHRISTIANS ARE ALLOWED TO EAT ANY FOOD SOLD IN THE MARKET;
[1 Corinthians 10:25] Eat anything sold in the meat market without raising questions of conscience
UNKNOWN TO MANY MUSLIMS, Eating pork is allowed in their religion when they are in dire needs;
[Quran 16:115 & 2:173] He has only forbidden to you dead animals, blood, the flesh of swine, and that which has been dedicated to other than Allah . But whoever is forced [by necessity], neither desiring [it] nor transgressing [its limit] – then indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.
FURTHERMORE, you Muslims should question your religion as well, because Allah commanded you to eat Camels while eating them is prohibited in Deuteronomy 14:7;
[Koran 22:36] “The sacrificial camels we have made for you as among the signs from Allah: in them is (much) good for you: then pronounce the name of Allah over them as they line up (for sacrifice): when they are down on their sides (after slaughter), eat ye thereof, and feed such as (beg not but) live in contentment, and such as beg with due humility: thus have We made animals subject to you, that ye may be grateful.”
