Question: Do you think Paganism supports Vegetarianism or an Omnivore diet?
There is no question that Paganism is an Earth based religion, this we can all agree on. Earth is in a constant cycle of balance, if humans were brought back to the roots of being a fellow animal we would be balanced as a predator. Now that we have risen up as a collective and generally view ourselves as being above all other living beings, we tend to get this smug view that we can stomp on and over anything lesser than us... Which includes everything. (NOTE: I say we as a generalization, not that we all fall under the "WE" demographic) So seeing as we are a Earth based religion and we view life as being balanced (Or at least working towards being balanced) wouldn't we "evolve" into vegetarians? I would imagine we all could agree that humans in our current state consume more than we give back to the Earth. That being said wouldn't the religion of Paganism as a whole turn more to the Vegetarian life style in our shift to balance life than to continue as a Omnivore society?
