Good articles, Claire. Here is some information about eating "pork".

Deuteronomy 14:3 (Holy Bible, Oxford translation) You shall not eat any abominable thing.
Deut 14:8 And the swine, because it divideth the hoof, yet cheweth not the cud, it is unclean unto you: ye shall not eat of their flesh, nor touch their dead carcase.

(Good News Bible)
Deut 14:3 Do not eat anything that the LORD has declared unclean.
Deut 14:8 Do not eat pigs. They must be considered unclean; they have divided hoofs but do not chew the cud. Do not eat any of these animals or even touch their dead bodies.

What is your opinion of these scriptures?
