comment Burying a fish as a Christmas tradition?
Further research shows that lutefisk, another fermented fish (although not one made by burying it) is a traditional Christmas meal in Norway. I'm sure this is all related, so you set me on the right path. For me the bottom line is this probably wasn't a joke, even though it's cultural, not Catholic. You were helpful, thanks!

comment Burying a fish as a Christmas tradition?
@davidbrainerd - I'm pretty sure that's it.He mentioned eating burying it one year and eating it the next, which I thought was crazy until I saw from your link that it's typical to let it ferment in an earthen pot for 6 months. If you can work that into an answer to the effect of "No, it's not a Catholic tradition, but it is possibly a family tradition or cultural one", I'll accept it. The question is "Is it a Catholic tradition?" and "No" answers the question.

comment Does the Bible support the concept of male spiritual headship?
This answer would be a lot better if you could add references showing that this is a common understanding, and who teaches/believes it. On this site, we're not looking for personal interpretation, but rather focusing on what various Christian groups teach. See How we are different than other sites? and What makes a good supported answer?

This site has a blanket ban on "who is right" questions. This falls squarely into that category.

comment Is this age the only opportunity for salvation?
I don't get the question. Baptists believe in eternal security, meaning you cannot lose your salvation. If you can't lose your salvation, you can only get saved once. Hence it only happens on one singular day. It has nothing to do with "this age". That's mixing up two distinct theological beliefs. However, we DO believe that this age, this life is our only chance for salvation, based on Hebrews 9:27 among other verses.

Welcome to the site! This next is just standard to help new visitors avoid misunderstanding the site (as I did at first.) As a new visitor, I'd recommend checking out the following posts, which are meant to help newcomers "learn the ropes": the help page and How we are different than other sites?, and What makes a good supported answer?

I know this isn't the same question as the one I marked this as a duplicate of, but the answer addresses your issue. it was either close this as a duplicate, or close it as "primarily opinion-based" because we all have our opinion on what a 'good" response is.

comment Is fasting an eating disorder?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about simple term definitions, which can be found in any dictionary, and not a question limited in any way to Christianity.
