What about Act 15, the Council of Jerusalem
Quote:[28] For it hath seemed good to the Holy Ghost and to us, to lay no further burden upon you than these necessary things: [29] That you abstain from things sacrificed to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication; from which things keeping yourselves, you shall do well. Fare ye well.

I always figured that a) it was a discipline, if I'm using the right word, that could be changed/amended at a later date, as it wouldn't change a fundamental truth.  Quite a few countries in (formerly) Christian Europe have a long tradition of blood based foods, mostly soups and sausages.  I figure a pope would've stepped in and condemned blutwurst a couple centuries ago if it was a moral issue. And b) any blood in a sausage is fully cooked, so it's probably less bloody than a rare steak (the only proper way to eat one, may I add :D ).

I want creation to penetrate you with so much admiration that wherever you go, the least plant may bring you clear remembrance of the Creator.  A single plant, a blade of grass, or one speck of dust is sufficient to occupy all your intelligence in beholding the art with which it has been made  - Saint Basil
