Vegetarianism (Article) and Christianity

The Orthodox Christians obey fasts that sometimes last as long as 1/3 of the whole year. Fasting one does not consume meat or meat products. So, tell me again, what was/is the problem with the vegetarianism within all these Christian countries when their Monks and Saints supported vegetarianism as a physically, mentally and spiritually beneficial diet?

Leo, The Loveable Lion
Leo, the Lovable Lion - Giles Andreae,David Wojtowycz

Leo, The Loveable Lionby Giles Andreae, is a story, about a lion cub who doesn't fit in. When he tells his pack he doesn't want to eat meat, they send him away. While on his own, he makes new friends, proves his worth, and finds peace with himself. In the end, his pack realizes their mistake, and his Mom welcomes him back home.

 

Leo, The Loveable Lion is a super sweet story with equally pretty illustrations.  It teaches a great story about appreciating those who are different and about accepting yourself when you are the one who is different, yet doesn't come across as preachy. This is a fabulous book to use if you are having issues in your classroom with accepting diversity or when teaching a diversity unit.  Kids will hopefully learn a lesson without even realizing they are learning!

7 Most Important Benefits of Being a Vegetarian
Mindful Eating with Delicious Raw Vegan Recipes - Nataša Pantović Nuit

1. Being a Vegetarian is a Lifestyle Choice.  It is a Conscious Choice

 

Being a vegetarian is a lifestyle.  If someone tells me that s/he is a vegetarian, I immediately know that the person made a conscious choice to work on him/herself.

 

Choosing the vegetarian diet we work with millions of others to protect the rainforests, to prevent the huge suffering of farmed animals, and to reduce our-own energy consumption.

 

Mindful Eating: Vegetarian Benefits, Benefits of Being a Vegetarian, you can free your mind

 

When we say  we mean that:

 

- We carefully thought about the food and we made a conscious decision about our food choices

 

- We care about health and we will do our best to avoid all the items that harm our body, mind and soul

 

- We carefully thought about environment and the eco foot-print that we leave on our blue planet and we believe that the most effective way to ‘go green’ is to become a vegetarian.

Scientific Vegetarianism
Scientific Vegetarianism - Edmond Bordeaux Szekely Taking into account that this book was written 40 years ago, it's a remarkable text. Any groundbreaking text, when read decades later, does suffer from appearing dated and less complete than other more modern books on the same subject, but one has to bear in mind that any seminal work will, by its very nature, have less depth than those texts that follow it.

Szekely discusses the personal ethics of vegetarianism; cites centuries of well-known geniuses who were all vegetarians and then proceeds to show why freely choosing vegetarianism as a way of to a healthy life is both scientific and not as hard as one would expect, if one is used to eating flesh.

There are excellent discussions on toxic foods (including flesh) and why each food group is good or bad for the body. The first few "ten commandments" of vegetarianism may be suited to a slower, more restful world than the one we live in today, but the final quote from Henry B Stevens which Szekely uses applies not only to the food we eat but our whole way of life:

"If violence were no longer at the centre of our daily diet and land use, it would soon cease to be the foundation of our public affairs where at present war requires more than half the national budget."

While the statistics of how much of any nation's budget is allocated to war and defence weapons may vary depending on the century and the culture, that sentiment, coupled with Szekely's rational explanation of vegetarianism as a healthy way of life, is enough to turn the most ardent meat-eater into a vegetarian.
