If Vegans don't eat meat, don't want to eat meat, why do they have meat-like products and items designed to simulate and/or taste like meat? I'm not being facetious...I'm thinking that is strange. It's like folks who decide to stop eating bacon and pork sausage, then get some horrible imitation of bacon or chicken patties rather than simply move to steak and eggs. In my faith we're pretty much allowed to eat whatever God provided, it's not like an entire real religion will fall apart because some adherent gobbled a breakfast link, but if there was something I'm not supposed to eat, I don't want some substitute for what I'm not supposed to eat. I don't want to smoke pot, don't have a desire to do so, and I don't rush out to find something to smoke that's like pot. If I didn't drink, I'd not want some near beer...so why do people who decide they're forbidden from eating something simulate?
