Vegan

i don't like to respond to specific posts on the boards, but i'm annoyed...
'vegans are wrong'?
based on the bible?
you're sadly ignorant, and here's why, scripturally:

genesis 1:29 'and god said 'behold i have given you every plant yielding seed which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit; you shall have them for food...i have given every green plant for food'.'

this is before the fall of man. before being cast out of eden. so god proscribed a vegan diet for humans before the fall.

and when god gives man 'dominion' over animals you might do yourself a favour and look up the etymology of 'dominion'. it means essentially, to act in a god-like way towards something. 'domine' latin for 'god'. so in giving us 'dominion' over animals god is asking us to treat them as if we are god. in other words, with kindness and compassion and great reverence.
i have almost no patience for anyone who uses religion to justify cruelty. and a belief in the rights of animals doesn't invlove any sort of compromise in a belief in the rights of humans. the two rights go hand in hand, and they're both the product of love and compassion.
