Yesterday the Pope Blessed the Clean Your Plate Club


Yesterday Pope Francis made the case for the preservation of one of the unhealthiest clubs around - the clean your plate club - saying that, "throwing away food is like stealing from the table of those who are poor and hungry".

Maybe I'm splitting hairs here, but I sure wish he'd have asked people to serve and make do with less food rather than bless the consumption of whatever's on your plate simply because it's there.  Given this day and age's portion sizes eating what's there will be more likely to have us treating our bodies like dumpsters than temples.

I know Pope's are supposed to be infallible, but being Jewish I'm quite comfortable doubting (and encouraging you to ignore) this particular message.
