Connect with vegetarian and vegan friends from all over the world.
Hello veggie friends
I'm so happy to find this website to communicate with veggies;I am a lacto ovo vegetarian since september 2006 and still happy with it. People arounds me are really strange in their reaction toward my food habbit!!
they always confront me with odd questions like:
1-Hey, if killing animals is gonna hurting them ,why God didn't forbid eating them?
2-Hey, if you were lost in a dark forest, lions would surely eat you and your being vegetarian won't let you survive! this is the survival of the strongest rule! wake up !!
3-Hey, but you don't look skinny in poor shape like vegetarians must look
I always respond wisely to their questions but after few days they still think themselves witty and ask me again those stupid questions
what will be your answers of the above questions?
1) Religion is open to interpretation (and that's putting it lightly).
2) You have the luxury and intellect to be compassionate at this current moment (also, if there were no food for herbivores how long will the ecosystem last)
3) look at other species elephants gorillas that are veg. It's not what you eat when it comes to fibrous veg it's the amount you eat.
It is'nt a weird thing. On the other hand I consider it a sane thing. Not killing animals for food and other needs also means indulging in non violence which I feel reaches out to God in heaven. By not killing animals u r free of sin. That should be a beautiful thing to do.
This questions are really weird, no wonder you get annoyed when people ask them !
Don't know about 2 or 3, but, even though I'm an atheist, I'd answer n°1 with "Do you really think Jesus (or Buddha or Allah, depending on who's asking) would approve of THIS ? " (and then you show them a video of a factory farm or a slaughterhouse, annoying meat-eaters really hate it when you force them to acknowledge how their meat is produced).
Hopefully, then, they won't ask again :-)
