    The Jain religion proscribes against the killing of animals, but sadly, all religions teach "human supremacy" in one form or another, which is a de facto license to do as we wish with the other animals...

    How did I forget about the Jain religion? Absolutely! In fact, there is a Jain temple just outside of Chicago in Bartlet, IL.

    All life is animated by the Spirit of God.

    Animals have souls just as we do.

    There is a vegetarian Pastor in Ottawa at this website.

    If you do a google search for vegetarian ministries or Pastors in your area, you will probably be able to find someone.

    One of the four regulative principles of Hare Krishna is no eating of meat, including fish or eggs.

    '1. No eating meat, fish, or eggs. Killing animals destroys the quality of mercy. One turns one's body into a graveyard by consuming dead animals. These foods are saturated with the modes of passion and ignorance and therefore cannot be offered to the Lord. A person who eats these foods participates in a conspiracy of violence against helpless animals and thus curtails his spiritual progress.'

    Any religion that adheres to non cruelty might be veg* Buddhist, Hinduism, Hare Krishna, and some Seventh Day Adventist churches and Unitarian churches.
