Is the LDS Church still enforcing this Word of Wisdom thing?D&C
89 does not even mention coffee, tea, alcohol, and illegal drugs. It does not
really encourage members "to eat food in proper proportions and to show
respect and appreciation for their food by not wasting or overindulging."
the obesity rate among LDS is no better than the general population. Too many
unhealthy casseroles at Ward activities! A quick glance at any typical Ward
congregation proves overindulgence is the rule, not the exception.Diet Coke must have been secretly announced as the official drink of the
Church, despite how unhealthy it is. You can lose your temple recommend for
drinking coffee (generic brewed, 95mg caffeine), or tea (black brewed, 50mg),
but not for drinking a Redbull (80mg) or a Diet Coke (47mg), or for taking
Excedrin (130mg).And I don't see any Church members following
these dietary restrictions:"Nevertheless, wheat for man, and
corn for the ox, and oats for the horse, and rye for the fowls and for swine,
and for all beasts of the field, and barley for all useful animals, and for mild
drinks (beer?), as also other grain."
