I can think of several things of the top of my head that could be considered an insult to God.
You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain:
Perfectly reasonable. No one likes to be disrespected.
Honor your father and your mother:
God granted them the privilege of having you, respect them for it.
Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy:
All God asks is that you take a break to honor him.
You shall not murder:
Please don’t tell me I have to explain this one.
You shall not use the common fork when you have perfectly good fingers:
I must have missed that commandment when I was growing up.
All though forks are first known to have been used in Ancient Egypt, to lift sacrificial offerings, Constantinople (400 A.D.) is said to have been the first user of a dinner fork. In the 7th century, forks were widely used in Middle Eastern courts.
The fork made it’s way to Italy, in the dowry of a Byzantine princess who married a Venetian doge. Unfortunately, when she used the fork, she was reprimanded by the church, who claimed the fork was an insult to God’s intentions for fingers. The fork was not known to be used again for almost 300 years.
In England, religion did not play a part in its slow acceptance. Instead, it was considered a feminine utensil, and even in the 1500’s, men did not want to seem “girly”.
The exception was a more “manly” version called the sucket, used to spear foods preserved in thick liquids or syrups.
The fork gained popularity in Italy by the late 1600’s, in the interest of cleanliness.
The French saw the fork as an awkward, dangerous utensil. Until eating meat with both hands was declared uncivilized, forks were not used in France. Many, including King Louis XIV, were unaware of how to use the fork and continued using the blade of the knife, or their fingers.
In England, Charles I announced, “It is decent to use a fork” in 1633. By the next century, the fork had gained acceptance in the upper and lower classes, and became a common utensil.
In America, the fork was introduced on June 25th, 1630, by Governor Winthrop. Many thought him strange, and rude. Again, it was declared that the fork was a utensil insulting to God.
Eventually the fork became widely popular across the country, transforming from straight, to curved, from two prongs to four. The ongoing debate on how, where and with what to use it with continues to this day.
