Ever since I became vegan, the words “atheist” and “liberal” were everywhere. I would tell my dad reasons why eating meat was not good for the environment, animals, etc, and he would say, “Where are you getting this liberal propaganda from?” I’m sorry, but since when does being vegan mean you’re a liberal?
I find that insulting to vegans, and liberals as well! Plenty of liberals hate vegans, and plenty of vegans hate liberals! I don’t see the connection here?
To everyone out there that isn’t brainwashed like my father, climate change is real. However, whether or not humans cause the destruction is still being debated. Some say yes, and some say no. I guess this is where my dad is getting the idea of “liberals” from. A lot of liberals believe in climate change, but many don’t as well! You can’t group all vegans into the “liberal” category, or liberals into the vegan category.
Now that I have that cleared up, I would like to get into whether or not vegans are “atheist.” First of all, whoever made up this stereotype is an idiot. PLENTY of Christians are vegan, and in fact, vegans have pretty strong evidence for Christians that show they shouldn’t eat meat, including some bible pages where it hints at the welfare of animals, Adam and Eve were vegan before they sinned, etc. Clearing the air again, NOT ALL VEGANS ARE ATHEIST. In fact, a ton aren’t. Christians are the majority of the population, remember that. I believe in God, and I’m vegan?
So, I just wanted to make this quick post to get rid of this awful and confusing stereotype. If you are vegan and you have heard of this dumb comment before, make sure to comment below. Thanks for reading! 🙂
