The following from an eastern paper I
holds up the pious Clmstiiins in good IW
style I the Mormons were to fulmi
nate such commands wouldnt they beheld
held up to ridicule though
No doubt the Savior meant tiriit it is
not what a man cats that makes him fL
bad but his abusive and slanderous j
talk such as the priests and parsons I 1

A marked peculiarity of feligioit misit r
is today is its departure from the
teachings of Jesus and it e this incon I
sistency incongruity insincerity i
which shows that it is to agreat degree
time work of priestcraft Ajrvinstahce
take the Catholic doctrine of Lent mis
an illustration The Archbishop of
this diocese has just issued his orders us li1 >
to what may be eaten dft ring Lentor If
the quadragesimal or forty days fast r
observed by the Catholic church Here I
are four ot the commands or prescrip r
tions for the regulation of the stomach jl II
in the matter ofjhe proper victuals gra
ciously allowed to be < put ito ga il
Jut
3 Beside lard the fat rendered
from any kind of meat jniy be used U i 1 t
food in Lent jj1
preparing on any day in Lent n I
This dispensation is aKo extended to
the days of abstinence and fast days r U t
throughout the year

account of long existing custom the h

Upon reading the aboveweinsiiret 1
ively opened the New Testament to
which we always go when we are de
sirous of learning what lusus taught
the Jesus whom the Archbishop pre
tends to follow and imitate And as we
carefully looked over the Sermon on the
Mount we were unable to find any com
I mands from Jesus as fothe sort oUood
that a man may cut and not put in i I
I jeopardy his souls eternal salvation In 1 r
tact Jesns goes s far a to say that it is
not what n man eats that is essential or l
important although that idea i not 1
strictly physiological or bygjeaic But
he says it all the same Matthew xv 1
Not that which goeth into the mouth j j
defileth a man but that whi b cometh
out of the mouth tliis delileth n man
