Connect with vegetarian and vegan friends from all over the world.
So I have a friend who is a very strict Mormon. She will do anything and everything for her religion. Sometimes when I talk to her about becoming vegetarian and the benefits for the planet, body, environment, and the sake of animals, she ends it by saying that the bible says it's okay. Apparently the bible says that man can eat anything that moves... I just normally say well if that's coming from the same book that says gays are a disgrace, how does it have anything to do with real people getting real health problems from eating meat? She just kind of stands there speechless and says that I should follow God and his right ways because it'll do me good in the future and for my body... She also eats it for "strength"
What would you say to someone like her who is very religious? Has this happened to you? If not, what would you say?
BTW- I hope I didn't offend anyone!
There are plenty of Bible verses about eating animal flesh. just cite her some of them, so that she could realize how wrong she is for eating meat.
I agree with everything you just said you cant paint a picture with just one colour
Christians cant be swayed on any argument dont bother tryin their book tells them their right and that makes their views right and your just unenlightened, vegetarians and vegans can be just as self righteous. if she wants to eat meat dont try to change her mind, but if she asks why dont give her your honest reasons, she'll make her own choices after that but dont let her ideals affect yours and dont push yours on her even if your right for not eatin the carcasses of tormented creatures ;)
