Plant-based diets are becoming more and more popular, and not only for ethical reasons. However, not everyone is favorable towards them, as evidenced by the exchange of views on Twitter with the participation of MP Krzysztof Bosak.
Vegetarian and vegan diets are gaining more and more supporters. However, it is not only ethical arguments that determine the change in eating style, although many media reports on meat production may actually support such a decision. Our awareness is also growing when it comes to health. Many scientists claim that the elimination of meat from the diet can have positive effects on our body.
The discussion about vegetarianism also warmed the emotions of commentators on Twitter, who decided to look at the matter from the point of view of … religion. The exchange of views began with a post by Fr. Daniel Wachowiak. “When did we lose the spiritual battle for man? Veganism and diet instead of meatless Friday or fasting. Yoga instead of Christian meditation. Concubinage instead of marriage,” the priest wrote on his Twitter account. When asked by one of the Internet users whether God told people to eat meat, Fr. Wachowiak replied that “there is a mention in the Bible about eating meat – it’s about the words Kill Peter and Eat (Acts 10).”
Krzysztof Bosak also decided to present his view on the matter. The MP of the Confederation put forward the thesis that not eating meat… may offend God. “Can you risk the thesis that a man choosing complete vegetarianism for reasons other than genuine health (e.g. he is allergic to meat, if any) or penance (conscious renunciation) offends the Creator with his behavior, like a host’s guest refusing refreshments?” the politician wondered.
One Internet user noticed that in the Holy Bible you can also find passages talking about a plant-based diet. “And God said, Behold, I have given you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the earth, and every tree that has fruit with seed in it: they shall be food for you (Genesis 1:29-30),” he wrote.
