    Peacemakers have been praying to their gods for an end to war for thousands of years...guess "he" must be busy deciding who to send to where after death...

    I took part in Bible study for two years as a child and then began asking tough questions of my teachers at age 7. Later, I studied Religion in college. I barely began understanding the issues involved till my voracious reading began to include atheist and agnostic authors later in life.

    I'm curious...are you secure enough in your beliefs to read a book by an atheist?

    God made all people and loves them all even if they don't believe in him so as much as I am a strong Christian I don't see the point of hateing people just because of what they believe or what they don't believe,I don't think God would be pleased with that.

    I love all animals, including humans. It's an old ploy by the meat and dairy industries (and others that abuse animals)to claim that vegans (or others who care about non-human animals) hate human life.

    Can you answer my question? Are you secure in your beliefs to read a book by an atheist? Or even a book by a vegan?

    Read my comment again. It's people in the M & D industries, others who abuse animals, and those who consume them that claim "vegans hate human life".

    Limiting your educational sources on any subject is never a great idea.

    I studied religion for years in school, but learned more by reading some excellent books by atheists...

    And I don't hate religious people. It does trouble me that the Bible instructs "believers" to kill "infidels", stone women, and wage war.

    It also troubles me that hundreds of thousands of people were burned at the stake for being "witches", and that persecution of scientists held back research in many fields including medicine.

    The poor in spirit- Meat eating followers of this religion.

    Those who mourn- The animals and victims of the followers of this religion.

    The meek that will inherit the Earth- The rocks and stones. That is all that will be left if we continue consuming life without regard.

    Those that hunger and thirst for righteousness- The pre-vegan people that know better and should give up their falsity to begin a vegan lifestyle.

    The pure of heart- The vegans.

    The peacemakers- The vegan activists.
