This is a bit off topic, but since it does deal with Vivekananda, here goes:
Does anybody know what the story was with Vivekananda's fondness for
pork, even as a sanyasi? Everyone who I've asked has said that he did
eat pork, but nobody could give me an explanation as to why.

If it is the case that he did eat pork, and he was doing so just to
satisfy his taste buds, I'd have to wonder what sublime truths could
come from one who unnecessarily killed animals for food. And, I should
clarify a bit - I'm referring to sublime religious truths only.
