Thanks, Elyse (a well known and loved name in our family, by the way, although spelled differently).
I have also thought that I would be happy to take the money pledged to the church and apply it exactly where I would like to see it used--not on anything involving meat. That being said, unfortunately some of our money still goes toward meat-eating in our family. (I just ask that the meat stay out of our home.) I am also not sinless and am not a vegan or even a full vegetarian. I try not to push this on my family, but I have a lot of struggles with my place of worship not exactly matching my spiritual aspirations and addressing the cruelty. My spirituality and way of eating are now very closely linked. Sometimes I truly wonder how I could profess to love animals as I chewed on pork chops, chicken, and burgers.
Sometimes I wonder what Christ really thinks of what we call Christianity.
