This is just my own, personal opinion. Everyone in my grade thinks that I am standing up for animal rights or that I am doing it because of my Christianity. I tried meat as a kid and absolutely hated it. I have never had bacon or steak because I stick to my opinion that meat is nasty.
Humans have been eating meat for 2.3 million years. We are at the top of the food chain. I personally think meat tastes fine. I've grown up eating it and never considered stopping. Meat also simply tastes good to me. I respect people who are vegetarian or vegan because it's really just their choice what they eat.
