I definitely understand your point, and I do not limit my circle of friends based on religion, race, sexual orientation, etc; however, I do feel like there are times when I need fellowship with Christians who share my beliefs as far as vegetarianism/veganism is concerned. As a younger woman, I have allowed myself to be derailed by others who do not understand. I think that can happen to a lot of people if they are plugged into a group of people where vegans are the minority. While I will never limit my friends to those who are just like me (what fun would that be?!?!), I will continue to seek those out that I have commonalities with because I know that it will not only strengthen my faith, which is very important to me, but also give me a support system to be able to become a more outspoken and steadfast raw vegan (eventually).
Very limited perspective. People simply look for like-minded people. You wouldn't bother criticizing gay people connecting with other gay people, yet there is a group here for that. Or people into running or yoga. Why not extend this to people connecting geographically?! Oh NO!
