Reflections on Animals, Religion, and the Environment

In the latest issue of Vegetarian Journal, Gene Sager writes: “After visiting a new Buddhist temple in San Francisco, I scouted the neighborhood for a restaurant. A funky sign nearby caught my eye: “Burgers for Buddhists.” I asked why all the burgers on the menu were vegetarian; the chief cook/owner explained, saying, “Buddhists don’t eat meat, period.” This sounded like an oversimplification, and I decided to revisit and expand my research on this issue. Along the way, there have been lessons to be learned about other religions as well.”
