Veganism is a religion.
Debate Rounds (3)
I get veganism is a religion argument a lot when talking about vegan issues. In fact, whenever I mention vegan concepts Christians around me shift uncomfortably. Communicating to me non-verbally they tolerate it but warning me not to idolize it.
This makes no sense to me. How can you idolize veganism? It is not even physical. Its not like its a different God or anything. There is no chanting nor worshiping.
Nevertheless, some of the most bitter and intense fighting erupts when a vegan claims another vegan is idolizing veganism. A normally peaceful community of vegans go into a civil war. Why is this? Why is brining up the issue of idolizing veganism the best way to get vegans to fight each other? I don't think it is possible for veganism to be a religion nor to idolize veganism.
Thanks for the debate.
"Forbidden to you (for food) are: dead meat, blood, the flesh of swine, and that on which hath been invoked the name of other than Allah." So that's why Veganism is not a religion but 'Only' is an action taken if some foods are not allowed or for your wantings.
