    Do you think eating meat is immoral?

    Look, I don't think eating meat is immoral - but I think about the subject daily.

    If you think eating meat is immoral - then I want to hear you very very best reasoning WHY you think it is immoral.

    Also, what are the limitations?  Is eating fish immoral, or is it just mammals?  Where does it end, etc?

    If God didn't want us to eat the animals, He wouldn't have made them so darned tasty.

    We were created to be omnivores. No, I don't think that eating meat is immoral ; however, I do think that being wasteful is. I think it is important to respect the things that sustain us. We often lose sight of this importance when we buy from a market rather than hunt and forage for ourselves.

    I don't eat beef, but that's just because I don't care for it, which is punishable by death in the Texas Panhandle.  I eat chicken and fish, once I had rattlesnake (tastes like chicken with LOTS of bones) squirrel, rabbit, pheasant, deer, sheep testicles, lamb kabobs, pork and while in high school, mystery meat.  Nowadays i only eat meat a couple of times a week.  I just don' like it anymore. 

    As for morality, literally billions of people are starving around the world.  We have canines, incisors,  we were designed to eat meat.  God told us to eat meat in the Bible.  Jesus ate meat.  Wasting food is immoral.  If you choose not to eat meat on moral grounds, that is fine.  But don't try and make other people feel guilty.  They'd eat you soon enough if they were starving, and so would you.

    What brought this on - do you live near someone who has been giving you the meat is murder message?

    What I think is immoral is gross overeating, throwing up, throwing out good food, or letting good food go to waste (like not refrigerating it) especially when there are plenty of people out there who can barely get a meal together.  True for people living in the US as well as all over the world.

    I don't know, WTS, seems to me that moderation in all things is the way to go.  That means eat a little meat, chicken, veggies, milk, bread and chocolate chip cookies - your body need nutrients from all the food groups, unless you happen to be allergic.  Now, wasting food - that's immoral!

    Like I told you yesterday I'm a vagitarian which I think is very healthy eating because you really don't ingest what you're eating. It's more about nibbling :-/ You ask too many questions, why are you like that? :-P

    I am not vegetarian nor vegan but I almost never eat meat; however, I do not think eating meat is immoral what-so-ever.  Still, some ways of dealing with cattle and poultry might be, when they are just locked away without being able to move around at least a little, living a very unhappy life, and I am almost sure that this reflects as well in the quality of the meat.
