    Agreed, and I also believe that the major world religions were started by God, because I believe He wants us to come to Him and I believe He is merciful enough to not want to artificially prevent us from going to Him by limiting salvation to one faith or sect, and that He gave information based on what each culture could accept according to time, place, and circumstance so some faiths may have received more information about some topics. In Hinduism, we are told that ahimsa or non-violence is an ideal that should be followed (much like the commandment not to kill, and the instruction to do unto others as you would have them do unto you, and to love your neighbor), and that harming others in word or deed regardless of species is bad karma or sin, because all species have the same kind of spirit/soul and are part of God's creation. Meat is also unnecessary nutritionally, and a plant based diet is at least just as healthy, which means that eating meat is not for nutrition and is unnecessary killing for the purpose of taste pleasure. I think it is better to accept that and also eat meat than to believe it is in some way necessary to eat meat. For example, I think it is better to hunt and be aware of what the animal is going through than to only buy meat at grocery stores while thinking it is bad to hunt. From a Christian point of view, Genesis 1:29 says that plants are for food and in my view Genesis 1:28 says animals are for protecting from harm. I also take the various restrictions against eating certain kinds of animals or in certain ways to be intended as further dissuading us from eating meat, so as to say that if you must, here are some more rules to make it more difficult. This is similar to Hindu scriptures which also put restrictions on eating meat, saying to not eat some animals and if you must, there are further restrictions to discourage it. Is this to say that Jesus would have sinned if He ate meat? From a Hindu perspective, God cannot sin because He is beyond sin (apapa-viddha) and beyond material nature (BG 7.12). He not only creates, but also destroys. Not a blade of grass moves without His will.

    My cousin is running against Culberson (CD-7) in Texas. My wife is running his campaign. www.DavidBalat.com Dem's think this a weak seat, so our plan is to give the voters a stronger choice going into the general. Our infastructure and strategy is solid. Culberson is weak. Now is our time.
