real perspective on religion

lets talk about how religion controls government

i find it ironic government will tax anything they can even poor people and yet religion has tax exempt status

so let me guess, religion which doesnt even obey any of the bibles teachings can do better good than say you or me?

so basicaly religion uses its other entity government to extort the working class to fund religious child molesting communist aka republicans

But so does a total vegetarian, by definition. So how are they separate? For one, vegans do not purchase products which are seen to cause suffering, such as leather, suede, fur, and some vegans do not purchase palm oil. While a total vegetarian may abstain purely for dietary reasons, choosing to be vegan is solely an ethical…

Did you know that worstpolluted.org lists leather pollution as the third largest pollution threat in the world? Wearing and using leather products is a grave evil.

Greatest Thinkers Rejected Meat

Been so busy lately that I've been forced to sort of read just for some peace of mind. I wasn't inducted very long ago, but I already have member meetings and events for Honor's and that's taking up a lot of my time. All day yesterday I was busy at a cookout, but I met a lot of nice people :)

Anyways, today I just started reading "Walden." It really interests me, because I knew it was about him going off to Walden Pond, but I had no idea that Thoreau was a vegetarian. How cool…

5 Fat-Fighting Secrets from Around the World

 In Spain . . . They eat slowly A well-crafted meal takes time to appreciate. After all, the quicker you swallow, the less time food has to tantalize the tiny flavor receptors on your tongue. Spaniards know this—and they know that food is meant to bring together friends and family—which is why they pioneered the notion of tapas. Tapas are small dishes meant to be consumed slowly and conscientiously. When Spaniards eat tapas, they take breaks between bites. They chew slowly and break for…

HOW'S YOUR SKIN?

I love being Vegan. I can feel the difference in almost every aspect of my mind and body, but I have one MAJOR con... my skin is crap! Before I became Veeg I rarely had a breakout. Now I have a new breakout almost every week. I did some research to see if this was even possible to blame on my new diet because I eat extremely healthy. Another girl that emailed me said she had the same issue. I am not on any medications. I drink moderately. I wash my face twice a day. I am wearing the same…
