Posted by Robinwomb at 11/04/16 09:27:13Very beautifully said ahimsa32fa! I embraced my atheism (something I tried to hide and deny for years) years after I went vegan. I joined an atheist vegan group online and was surprised at some of the nastiness towards religions and religious people. I was hoping for a safe place to talk about my uncertainties and feelings, and how to cope with living with a person that is strongly Christian but whom I still love on many levels, but I wouldn't open up there for anything now.
It is truly important to reach out to all cultures, races, religions etc in terms of animal rights advocacy, and not shut one group out while praising another. Veganism is something everyone can embrace, whether one is conservative, religious, poor, rich, whatever.
