You probably won't get much support in a vegetarian/vegan thread... If someone has a certain belief, its their choice. Would you go on a religion thread badmouthing their beliefs? Not the same thing I know, but both are personal choices we have made for ourselves...
I don't believe I badmouth anyones point of view or their preferance for food. Just stated a couple of points of fact in our evoloution which included meat.
I do have friends that are grass eaters with the ocassional tomato, potato, letice and the rest. Nice folks but pasty looking. Oh they are always trying to push their point on being a grass eater.
Then there is the other friend who proudly anounced at my dinner party I'm a grass eater. I told her I would prep more veg for her and her partner, then they sat down at my table and quickly included the roast lamb meat onto her plate with an equal amount of veg. I at times wonder why my vegetarian friends (4) spend so much time trying to convince me the vertue of their belief or is it trying to convince themselves.
I still invite them for dinner and when cooking a roast, or having fish, put enough on the table so they can indulge if they chose.
Perhaps you did not read what I wrote correctly.
My final comment was room for debate.
Now your comment on religion. No I would not go into a church and debate religion or badmouth those that believe. However, when they knock on my door unanounced and push their belief and don't consider my right to believe or not to believe thats another matter for another day. But then, I am polite when asking them to leave and I hold onto the dog cause he likes a little meat with his veg.
I'm having a little fun don't get bitter and twisted. My best friends are vegetarian, well almost, there are little critters made of meat that they do injest when grazing. And they ocassionally allow a meat eater like me to sit on their backs. 002.jpg
