Not much surprises me anymore especially when it comes to religious practice, but I was floored by something my sister-in-law in Fiji told me the other day. Apparently, the Methodist Church there is insisting that it is mandatory for Hindus who wish to convert to Christian to eat beef! She also said that when a Hindu marries a Muslim there they too are required to eat beef. I've never heard of such a thing. Has anyone heard of this practice? I can't seem to find a single Biblical reference to support this.
