Very annoyed with a Parent who has been teaching this Child all kinds of
DONT- DOs because GOD WILL GET ANGRY if you DO!!
What is the concept of God you paint in a child’s mind? And the reasons you give a child for not doing something? Think again when you tell your child – “Don’t eat meat because God will be angry.” Really?! Seriously? This your so called Strategy?” Tell the child, not to eat because it hurts animals, not because s/he has to PLEASE GOD. And saying that God gets Angry and Judges your actions cancels the concept of God totally! It is funny what we teach our children. . . and as they grow into adults, leave the choice to your children. There is ZERO point in FORCING anyone to do anything.
If you yourself as a Parent, don’t eat meat because your religion tells you that you will go to HELL, well, HELL and HEAVEN are in our minds. If inside your mind you feel that you want to eat meat but this is the only reason you don’t, then you are SUPPRESSING your desires and gaining no PUNYA out of it.
No religion on Earth ever, ever, ever teaches to do something by FORCE. Never ever! All those shanatic beliefs about what religions says YOU MUST AND MUST DO are CREATED and Passed on by Humans.
And there are 1000s of people who don’t eat meat but have the cruelest thoughts and intentions. They think ill and do ill to others, what is the point then?
I grew up seeing some of these highly NAME-SAKE religious people with the dirtest minds.. and they would be chanting in the temple and at the same time judging every1 who entered the temple and torturing people who live with them.
Would you rather vote for someone eating meat who is genuine, honest, kind and good overall Or some1 who doesn’t eat meat but is greedy, selfish, cruel to others?
