I do not say that one who is vegetarian is full of compassion and one who is not, is otherwise. We sometimes find people, who are vegetarians, are very bad people. Morarji Desai
Yes, I definitely agree! I am one apt example of an evil vegetarian! >:) hahaha. Alright, jokes aside. I know that this is not something for me to judge, but here's what I think:
I am a vegetarian, but I have to admit that I have a huge list of shortcomings. I do agree that one who consumes meat can be kind and compassionate, and ,ofcourse, does not neccessarily have to be a herbivore to be that. But why not make an extra effort to further the practice of compassion. It is definitely difficult to transform your diet completely, but you can make an effort to reduce your meat intake. Farm animals are abused and slaughtered as the demand for meat continues. As I have stated in my previous post, the benefits are undeniable. I am not advocating that you have to become a vegetarian(unless you want to). I know this topic can be sensitive and even a huge turn-off to some. And I am fully aware that I don't have the rights to tell people what to do and stuff like that, and that is why I have been avoiding this topic with friends. Of course, it all boils down to our own personal choice. I still love my meat eater bunch of friends. :)
There are many different types of vegetarians. I am a lacto-ovo vegetarian, as I include eggs and dairy products in my diet. I am on my own personal mission to become a vegan someday, But this is an extremely difficult and near impossible task for me as I am obsessed with dairy products, especially cheese and eggs! >___>
Wish me luck!
