Overview on the topic
So many gods and faiths, that it´s hard to say if an action is sin or not - check http://www.godchecker.com/ for a funny overview on gods.
Killing animals for Dairy products or eggs is just as much a 'sin' as meat-so vegetarians need to stop sinning and go Vegan!
Ldev perhaps you are unaware of farm co-ops and dairy shares wherin different kinds of people, (many vegetarians) who do not harm or wish harm on any animal, invest in and pay for the maintenance, feeding, houseing, and milk of cows who do not end up being killed. The cows are not under stress or diress and they are not-overworked. The living conditions are beyond excellent where the animals can roam and graze giving you a new perspective on free-range. These co-ops and farms are small but nationwide you just have to look for them, or be fortunate to live near one. The same is true for eggs. I personally know my egg lady (she delivers the eggs to the health food store where I work) and she cares for her chickens better than most parents I've seen with their own children...her eggs are good and there is no killing of the male chicks. These animals live long lives and are not killed. Remember that this forum is called Vegetarian Friend. You're going to have a rough time convincing people here with your statement about vegetarians being the same as those who eat meat. It's just a silly statement and maybe a little offensive to some. I hear where your intention lies: compassion, non-cruelty and in this I think we are all of one mind and that is that killing period is intollerable However you need to be better-informed as to the scope of practices of the diverse vegetarian communities as well as to the possibility in this day and age of being a compassionate lacto-ovo vegetarian (who may also enjoy local honey from compassionate apiarists). It is not easy but it exists...people have been doing it for a while now.
Point out the existence of Seventh Day Adventists. All of whom are very strictly vegetarian.
i call bs!
Now I am an atheist, but if you will all refer to your bibles... Ok, now go to Genesis. Allright. See, the garden of Eden, how God created man to be, is a vegetarian paradise. Now close you bible, and go outside.
If that was the case, why would our bodies be biologically vegetarian??? Yes, they are.
