Or would you let your kids watch or do the butchering of the animals or rather let them pluck plants?...i thought so. Case closed.

First note: I ate meat for 24 years before changing my diet as an experiment,
Please explain to me why it is that former smokers, former alcoholics, and former meat eaters are, almost without fail, always preachy, self righteous individuals who believe it's their job to make sure every one around them makes the same personal choice they made in relation to whatever "vice" they previously enjoyed? I've never understood this. You made a choice, good for you... now butt out of every one else's business and move on with your own choice.

Until you can provide affordable organic vegetables, seeds, and fruits then it seems animal protein is more of a thing for the poor.
The funny thing is that is far more expensive., uses far more land and far more toxic to the environment to create meat than it is vegetables.
How much Immodium A.D. do you blast through in a year? Sorry, but I'll just keep keeping on.

Well then I'll see you on the African Savannah in the middle of a pride of lions trying to stop them from eating meat and preaching the benefits of veganism. I look forward to your success.
I mean, after all ... PETA says you can do it with your onw cats and dogs.
So why not take up your cross and preach it to the our wild brethren?

This argument doesnt hold up though , to those who butcher their own meat or hunt their own game on a regular basis
I think owning a commercial butcher shop for many years and owning a commercial fishing/processing/fresh fish, smoked shell fish and the whole 9 is a bit more equivalent with what most people eat and not their own like yourself.
