In a world were people claiming to be monothiestic worship a fat man with a flying chariot and an anthrophomorphic egg laying rabbit, not to mention a flying creature who steals teeth, I have to say we have poorly drawn lines regarding what is Pagan or not.

Ah well there are Christians out there who don't tell their kids about Santa at all for essentially the same reason you listed, oh and he's (partially) derived from a Catholic Saint and that's another strike against him for them.

Religion sure can be a mess. Try explaining to a Wisconsin Christian why fish aren't considered a vegetable.
"If it tries to fight back when you kill it, it's not a vegetable. Jesus never even claimed it WAS a vegetable!"

Christian vegetarians.

Hindu Veg.- "This resturant has a good menu. Most places don't have so many vegetarian options."
Chistian Veg.- "Oh, you're a vegetarian too? I didn't know that."
Waiter- "Can I take your order?"
HV- "I'll have the veggie fajita."
CV- "And I'll have the Portside Pasta Bowl."
HV- "Oops, hey, I think that has meat in it."
CV- "No, just pasta and fish. I checked."
HV- "...."

Oh ok. I think that's generally dumbness rather than stupidity derived from religion isn't it?

That's the thing- Religion reaches into every aspect of man. The capacity for hope? You betcha. The capacity for complex idiocy? Yup.

Be that as it may unless they state that they think a fish is a vegetable due to their faith I'm going to have to conclude it's just common or garden ignorance.

I figure it's just borrowing words. "Sure, it's not COMPLETE vegetarianism, but it might as well be," they say.

The thing that bothers me about some vegetarians is the pseudo meat veggies. The ones who cling to meat by having meat like substitutes like Tofurky and the like. One of the great things about Indian food is that it can be vegetarian on its own merits without making things look like they're still meat.

I had to wean myself off of meat with psuedo meat. At this point, I still have Boca Burgers, but for their taste as Boca, not as a meat substitute. Oh, and you can't do chili dogs without some sort of dog.

Actually where do you draw the line on your vegitarianism? Do you still consume dairy?

Dairy and eggs. Not a complete vegan. (So yeah, vegans can get all condisending to me, too. "Um, if it comes from an ANIMAL, it's not a vegetable now, is it?")

Sod vegans. If they were truly committed to their premise they'd be like the Jains and I doubt many have the yarbles to do that.

Vegetarians get to hate everybody who eats meat, as well as othe vegtarians. It's really the best.
