Tarantula Eating

The Christian tradition forbids the eating of tarantulas, much as the Islamic and Jewish ones forbids the eating of pork. Imagine if you lived in a town where nearly every restaurant had a variety of tarantula dishes on the menu. You might try to convince your non-Christian friends to avoid tarantula, at least when dining with you, completely independent of your desire to convert them to a different religion. I have never tasted a tarantula, but I imagine it would taste like shrimp, also forbidden to Christians.
