As vegans, we may feel sad, bitter, misunderstood, and isolated by the
apparently oblivious attitudes of our culture, friends, and families.
What can we do?
In a few words, we can cultivate a sense of joy and
thankfulness. In the face of our culture‚Äôs unrelenting pressure to view
animals as mere food commodities, going vegan is a victory for peace, a
real spiritual breakthrough.
From the viewpoint of its deepest and most eternal and universal
teachings‚Äîto love God, and to love our neighbor as ourself‚Äîthe Bible unequivocally condemns animal slavery just as it condemns human slavery. We must stop using the Bible to justify animal abuse, but rather use it to guide us in our quest for peace and justice for all beings.
