If you have sex with a prostitute against her will, is it considered rape or shoplifting?

Get off the moral high horse, you are killing animals constantly. How far do you want to take this? Stop driving your car so you don't kill insects? Fine, walk everywhere. But Don't wash your hair or ever use lotions either because both are made from animal fat and/or placenta. Don't go to the doc for stitches because those are made from animal by-products too. While your at it, move out of your house and burn all your stuff because you destroyed an animal's natural habitat by living there.

If you're going to stop eating meat for religious purposes that is one thing. Everyone will respect you for that. If you stop eating meat to be healthier because Dr. so and so recommended it great, do so. But if you think you are actually helping the world out, I seriously doubt it. There are millions of other people on the planet that will continue to farm out and consume livestock.

Vegetarian, is reasonable, vegan is just stupid. Go ahead and deprive your body of all natural protein and see how weak and sickly you get.

I had six friends all go vegan at the same time. Guess how many still are. 1 out of 6. Two got so anemic and weak they both went to the hospital. One has a permanent digestive disorder. And the others got so freaked about the muscle mass disapearing off their arms, they just stopped on their own. All of them were eating the powder protein inaddition to their diets.

Some people are just better suited for this than others. I work with Indians that have never eaten meat a day in their lives, but thats normal for them. However they do still eat cheese and products harvested from animals.

I know a few vegans who have done very well. Once again it is not the fault of vegetarianism or veganism that leads to unhealthy bodies it is ignorance. People who start living that way and DO NOT educate themselves on supplements, vitamins, and where to get their protiens will be unhealthy and it will be their fault.

I am trying to see who you were telling to get off their high horse

What I was getting at is that it has nothing to do with morality and it's absurd to say it is.

Revolutions start with a handful of people. Everyone's little bit adds up to change.

Watch out for evil PETA, though. Don't ever surrender animals to them; they kill them. They believe domestic cats and dogs are better off dead than in loving homes. Freaks.

PETA are hilarious.

What revolution? It's meat. You're defying the very nature of being human. It's the food chain. Survival of the fittest. It's not a revolution; it's a bunch of hippies.

What I said was that great change can start with just a few people; it also happens when many people alter what they do, even if it's just a little bit. You said it probably wouldn't help the world to stop eating meat. I disagree.

I didn't say that not eating meat is a revolution.

It wouldn't, because it hasn't.

Do you think vegetarianism is new?

By your same rule, nudism would help stop the world wearing clothing.

That certainly isn't happening.

I never said anything about helping the world.

I've often thought that the decline of strenuous religious practices is one reason why so many end up becoming vegans or adopting some other sort of lifestyle of sacrifice.

Most major religions have some history of ascetic practice, lifestyles which certain people are drawn to. Without them, people have developed their own secular reasons for self-denial...like veganism, in order to satisfy some innate desire for a life of asceticism.

If they could, I'll bet there are plenty of cutters that would be running off to join a monestary so they could start flagellating themselves...
