Butter vs Margarine: The Big Fat Butter Lie

Editor's Preface:
There's been a lot of fats news for decades.  Sometimes we need to consider asking God about some of these things instead of believing the advertising provided by the producer of the product.  We have never switched from butter.  We use olive oil also.  I don't see margarine in the Bible anywhere.
