Religious Approaches about Meat Eating

Carol J. Adams, author of many books including The Sexual Politics of Meat: A Feminist-Vegetarian Critical Theory, proposes and discusses 5 religious approaches to meat-eating: a vegan beginning; what Jesus (or any other spiritual leader) would eat today; the nature of creation and our role in it; the effects of anthropormorphizing God; and animals as neighbors.

Major world religions point to a vegetarian world as the ideal one. Our calling to be loving, merciful and compassionate; stewardship of Creation; and God’s animals’ ability to suffer are some essential teachings that we must no longer ignore. We have the capacity to create a joyful, peaceful and just world; and adopting a plant-based diet is a crucial step to achieve it.
