I just finished re-reading your first post on this thread. I'm not going to waste space by re-posting it, to comment on it.
This isn't a question. It's a statement of belief and why you think someone should belief it based upon the persons religus belief or creed. And why you think they are wrong if they don't belief as you do about their belief.
It's an attack. Not an honest question. Not honestly seeking answers as to why.
You state as fact, that eating meat is causing suffering. And base your whole comments based upon that assumption. And complain that you can't understand why others don't read the rede as you do, because of your assumptions that onlly as a vegan, would they not cause suffering. And only by being a vegan could they only truly follow the rede.
And yet, you wonder why you bring up this matter to other wiccians, you get the response you do? Your agruement isn't about the rede. It's about eating meat. It's about YOUR interpitation, not others. YOur interpitation of who and who can not suffer in this matter. You show your blindness to all that is around you, right off the bat.
You have brought this up here, and it has plainly been spelled (no pun inteneded) out for you that plants also bleed and feel.
Eating both meat and plants causes suffering.
That is your answer.
Wow I must be off my game for not seeing that bit of ill logic. Good work Hello, your dead on now that I took the time to think of it.
