If you believe in a god, you probably believe in a loving, benevolent god, right? Well, if you're not vegan, I'd like you to watch a short video on YouTube, titled “The fate of male chicks in the egg industry”. Did you watch it? Pretty fucking horrific, right? That's what happens to male chicks in the hatcheries that supply ALL egg farms, including the “free-range” ones. Now, tell me: does that look like the work of a loving, benevolent god? Would a loving, benevolent god be okay with the infliction of ANY kind of violence upon defenseless, innocent sentient beings? Would a loving, benevolent god be okay with your choice to use animals as if they were mere commodities?
Through history, religion has been used as an excuse for horrific atrocities, from human slavery and the burning of women at the stake to acts of terrorism and the persecution of members of the LGBTQ+ community. All that violence has been carried out in the name of a “loving, benevolent god”. When you say you won't be vegan because of your religion, you're simply continuing that long, violent tradition.
Let's just be honest for one second: the reason why you consume animal products is because you enjoy their taste. All this talk of how “god puts animals on Earth for humans” is just so you don't have to admit that your choices are wholly selfish. Or should I say “holy selfish”? Hell, shouldn't your dishonest excuses be regarded as sacrilege? I'm not actually a believer, but yeah, I thought I'd play devil's advocate here.
