Clever, except I'm pretty sure Hindus aren't generally vegan. The eggs would likely be fine... also, not all Hindus are vegetarian in the first place (but I get the point the cartoon was making).

This is not because they are religious, it is because they are cunts.

A tad brutal, but right on the money.

The amount of attention and validation Davis is getting from those who really should know better is staggering and, from the other side of the pond, a little disturbing.

Some are jain. Which is beyond vegan.

True... but it's totally irrational — even if you sweep the ground ahead of you to avoid killing insects (which they do), you're still killing other microscopic beings. If you truly believed this stuff, you would be forced to kill yourself (via starvation, obviously) — that would be the only way to avoid violence toward other life. It was a good way to control groups of tribal people (preventing violence is one of the keystones of "society"), but it's also super pretentious (and, of course, saying so is "bad form" because they're so pious... but it's true. To apply their hierarchy to dangerous religions, they would be the plants.... but it's still annoying).

There are religions where they don't eat potatoes because digging them up could kill worms.

I wouldn't serve my worst enemy cubes of uncooked, unseasoned tofu. Tofu is fucking delicious if you know how to cook it. Annoys the hell out of me that it gets a bad wrap because people are ignorant.

I think of tofu as I do noodles. I'm not going to eat them plain, they are going to be part of a larger dish that is providing flavor while the tofu is there for texture and substance.

I actually totally agree. Being vegan myself, I cook my tofu with veggies and usually something like soy sauce. Just found the cartoon funny :)

Bad wrap? Bad rep - bad reputation. Stop fucking our language up, peasant.

Technically pork is a biblically unclean food, so its against Kim Davis' religion too.

Regardless if people ignore the 3 sheet vision was speaking of gentiles and not food, but thats another topic.

She really could lose a few pounds. Not healthy at any age, let alone hers.

Unfortunately she's an elected official that won't go away until she's out of office.

Maybe if we all stop paying attention to Kim Davis, she'll just go away.

A lot of people in the U.S. seem to forget that separation of Church and State goes both ways - the State can't tell you what to worship, but your religious beliefs don't get to shape politics.

EDIT: specified religious beliefs because apparently saying "separation of Church and State" doesn't make that obvious enough for /u/acratus

your beliefs don't get to shape politics

What about your beliefs in human rights? Your belief in due process? Your belief in democracy (in whatever form)? In when life begins? Beliefs, whether informed by philosophy or religion, are the basis for laws, not a malignant force against them. The origin of beliefs don't make them de facto legitimate or illegitimate.

Edit: Revan makes it seem like I'm responding to a typo. I'm not. I'm posing a philosophical question about why some beliefs are legitimate and others are not based on their origins.
