The same could be said of a vegetarian, a vegan etc etc..........

Page 1289 Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji

mehlaa 1.
First Mehl:

maas maas kar moorakh jhagrhay gi-aan Dhi-aan nahee jaanai.
The fools argue about flesh and meat, but they know nothing about meditation and spiritual wisdom.

ka-un maas ka-un saag kahaavai kis meh paap samaanay.
What is called meat, and what is called green vegetables? What leads to sin?

gaiNdaa maar hom jag kee-ay dayviti-aa kee baanay.
It was the habit of the gods to kill the rhinoceros, and make a feast of the burnt offering.

maas chhod bais nak pakrheh raatee maanas khaanay.
Those who renounce meat, and hold their noses when sitting near it, devour men at night.

farh kar lokaaN no dikhlaavahi gi-aan Dhi-aan nahee soojhai.
They practice hypocrisy, and make a show before other people, but they do not understand anything about meditation or spiritual wisdom.

naanak anDhay si-o ki-aa kahee-ai kahai na kahi-aa boojhai.
O Nanak, what can be said to the blind people? They cannot answer, or even understand what is said.

anDhaa so-ay je anDh kamaavai tis ridai se lochan naahee.
They alone are blind, who act blindly. They have no eyes in their hearts.

maat pitaa kee rakat nipannay machhee maas na khaaNhee.
They are produced from the blood of their mothers and fathers, but they do not eat fish or meat.

It is obsession we should be guarding against, whether it is for cheese , kheer, Halwa, Channay, chicken drumsticks or a king sized tub of pop corn from the cinema. Excess comes in all forms and guises and is not confined to the meat eater. Infact one could argue that the meat eater is easily sated wheras a vegetarian may still be left wanting...........I think "Meat lovers are fools if they live to eat" is a statement making an assumption that people who eat meat dream of it all the time and do not consider any other food.
