But none of them were me, light sider. Do you not know the evil of your Jedi Order? How controlling you are, you cause more pain and problems than you heal and solve. Your constant waiting when serious conflicts are happening. Darth Revan and Malak managed to use the Dark Side to bring good. The only reason that the Dark Side corrupted them was because the betrayal of you stupid Jedi. Looking past all the good they did, ending the Mandalorian Wars, you punished them for it. Why did you do it?

It is your own pathetic greed. You were angry that your Order could not take credit for it. Two Jedi did. The Sith are not afraid to take chances, and in that, we are enabled the ability to do far more good than Jedi are. It depends on how it is used. There can be plenty of Jedi who are evil. They are not known as Sith, they are known as Dark Jedi, Reborn, or The Fallen. Sith can be good. We are known as Outcasts. I am a Sith Outcast, Jedi.

No, because I embrace power. Plus, my saber is kinda reddish...

Logical answer
Pork is infamous for rapidly "decaying/expiring", In the past in these hot arrid countries this was even more apparent, pork would taint quickly. This was recognized by the leaders and other people and eventually it was put forth to avoid the consumption of the meat, labeled pigs as a filthy animal, not fit for consumption as dictated by God to avoid loss of life through consequences of eating tainted meat and people believe this due to lack of understanding, the fact if they eat the meta not knowing it's tainted it kills and not better explanation due to lack of understanding.
Judaism is one of the many religions that don't allow it. Islam doesn't allow it either, and apparently Christianity doesn't allow it either.

There are more scientific reasons for not eating pig. The pig carries a lot of diseases and it is by nature a filthy animal, one that eats its own poo and others, and lives in dirt.

As a bio-veterinarian, I am shocked by your ignorance on pigs. They certainly are not the animal you make them out to be far from it! It's funny, this kinda reads like propaganda against pigs to me XD.

I will not go into detail unless asked, suffice to say there is more to this than meets the eye.

Christianity and Islam both branched off of Judaism and share some common themes and traditions (Christianity more than Islam). In Christianity the pig thing is a holdover from Judaism; I don't know about Islam though.

Also, you can say the same for literally any animal. There are no wild animals that don't live in dirt to some extent and don't carry diseases. The whole stereotype of pigs as filthy creatures living in mud is childish to say the least.

I hate to burst you bubble, but the Christians allow pork.

In addition, none of the Law applies to Christians any way. The Law was specifically for the Hebrew Jews.

And actually, the reason Judaic laws do not apply to Christianity is because of this.

Early Christians would change the rules to get more and more pagans to join the Christian faith.

Or, as for the non-cynical reasoning:
The Law was fulfilled through Jesus's death on the Cross.

The Judaic Law is impossible to hold to every single point. Much of it doesn't even apply to Orthodox Jews today, either (i.e. I daresay the amount of slaves owned by Jewish people today is much lower than what it was 4000 years ago).

My explanation is as true as yours (except the whole Jesus died and fulfilled the law, for I cannot say I believe it). All you have to do is look at the day that you celebrate Jesus' birthday to see that.

I never said it was wrong, I just said it was cynical.

And as for whether or not you believe it, doesn't make it more or less true.

Well, considering that all it runs on is belief, if I don't believe it, than it isn't true. ;D

Off that logic, if my particular belief system didn't believe in gravity, then gravity wouldn't exist, and that would be true.
