so of all the excuses, reasonings, defense catch phrases of people; i find religion to be one of the most impacting when it comes to food. Hinduism claims the cows as sacred, islam claims the pigs not meant to be eaten, christianity has grown fish friday followers everywhere. and no matter the tips and turns of a vegan discussion, it somehow more often than not comes down to...Jesus ate meat. Now ill say it right now, im not a religious person, meaning i dont follow any religion specifically, but being often around those that do..(im now only discussing christians).i looked back down in to my christian up bringing to find something more impacting to say other than "thou shou not kill" i came across this article here...
please give it a read through and tell me what you think. Are you a religious person,...if so what religion?? and how or does that affect your vegan diet? have you ever been put in a contradiction between wanting to be vegan and whatever religion you follow?....do you care?
personally, i see all food as having an energy. plants fill my body with peace, with life, filled with love from the suns rays and energy from the earths ground. They clean my soul and keep my thoughts and actions with the intention of kindness and purity. Animal products do the opposite , which hold an energy of death and sacrifice, nothing murdered should become part of my soul. Animals do not owe me something, and i shall not take what was not meant for me. nothing stolen from another soul should enter my blood stream. such a things could never nourish me.
