Guys, I would really appreciate it if you all didn't tease me too much.
First of all, please don't tell me that i'm missing out on a lot when I don't eat your juicy pork ribs, yummy lamb chop, extravagant seafood, etc. I eat to live, not live to eat.
Secondly, you have no idea how much the animals you are eating are missing out on - the chance to live & roam freely and not fed with grains & chemicals just so they can be slaughtered with pain & cruelty.
I agree that God gave us animals for our consumption, but not too the extend where we should bestow unnatural treatment upon them and hurt them just to satisfy our taste buds and meet the growing food demand. They obviously feel pain too! Many people choose to ignore this fact but I am not ignorant when it comes to animals and the environment, that's just me.
I respect whatever diet you wish to practice, but please respect mine too. I will not take the vegetables on my plate and throw it in your face when I see you indulging in a piece of steak and neither am I saying I will never eat a hot dog ever again. So I hope you will not try so hard to talk me out of my diet or tell me that I don't have a life because it is very uncomfortable and disrespecting my principles.
