It was started by man, so to make it mandatory is ridiculous, and I am rebeling against a religious tradition that God never started by eating meat."
I have NOT told her that I don't believe in God. It would kill her. I did the Catholic school thing since I was little, and went to a Jesuit University, and the answers to my questions on faith never got answered.
Then I learned about Science.
It comes a point when "God's will" and "test of faith" just doesn't cut it anymore. For me at least.
However, for those of you who do believe, I completely respect your decision. Please don't disrespect mine. Thank you.
