Is “show-off” less of a sin than alcohol?

Does the Koran say Muslims should in any way avoid alcohol but can at times exhibit the most extreme forms of extravagant behavior? Does the Koran not remind Muslims in every other verse to avoid “going to extremes?” Are some teachings of the Koran holy and the others less holy?

it`s all about hypocrisy. Why do you think people in Turkey ignore the religious rules not to have sex without marriage or not to get alcohol, but follow the rule not to eat pork? It`s because, living without getting alcohol or sex is dull, but there are so many substitutes for pork(pork is a crappy and unhealthy food anyway).

 

It`s the same for Christians too. How many Christians follow the rule not to have sex before marriage? It`s the same rule in Christianity.

 This is very true.  And as you Christians say, "let he who is without sin, cast the first stone"

Actually I heard a reason for Turks not to eat pork is the association with Christians, who do eat pork. But that doesnt make it less hypocritical Ive had lots of talks with friends who fast during ramazan, but drink and screw around as they please the other 11 months.  In that case I really fail to see the point. And they didnt really have an answer to it themselves.

{#lang_emotions_confused}who told that to you? Christians eat pasta too, don`t they? so why do Turks eat pasta if they don`t want to be associated with what Christians eat? Some hearsays are really ridiculous and unfortunately there are so many people believing them.

 The whole "pork thing" actually existed in most cultures as the pig used to be thought of as dirty.  Since we now know more about this wonderful animal and realise it is not dirty at all, most cultures eat it

 

As I dont eat any meat, I would rather just watch the animals alive
