From the Bacon Cheeseburger Day Facebook Page: "A bacon cheeseburger is probably the most blasphemous food out there. Hindu's don't do beef, it's not kosher, Muslim's think bacon is the root of all evil and if we eat it on a Friday in lent, it goes against some Christian beliefs (notably Catholics), wash it down with coffee or alcohol and you have the Mormons covered!
So I've made the first Friday in lent Bacon Cheeseburger Day! (This year it's on 2/19) Who's with me?
It's not about sticking it to religious people. It's about celebrating the fact that we have the freedom to eat cheeseburgers with delicious crispy bacon and haven't had that freedom taken away by a malevolent and manipulative organization."
