This might not sit too well with you or your fellow practitioners, but Truth it nonetheless is:
Plants are more intelligent than the most intelligent beast. And we eat them alive.
I applaud your conscientiousness in living your personal beliefs.
When you start putting down the beliefs of others, you are missing the entire point of vegetarianism.
I’m sorry your mom made you serve up a brother’s butt.
I’m sorry you can hand shred innocent virgin lettuce without giving it a thought.
We ALL kill to eat.
Get off your high horse and down here on the ground with the rest of us.
Please, and thank you.
