Muslim-Jewish Anti-Hog Coalition

By Jeffrey Goldberg

Elijah Muhammad, in "How to Eat to Live," on the matter of swine:

"The hog takes away the beautiful appearance of people and takes away their shyness. The people who eat the hog have no shyness because they eat the hog. Nature did not give the hog any shyness. God, in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad, taught me that the scientists have found that the hog carries 999 poisonous germs in it and they are not 100 percent poison, but nearly 1000 percent poison. The swine takes away our life gradually and creates worms in our bodies. The worms eat away our digestive tracts and cause bad thinking."

However, I'm told that bacon tastes good.
