I've been thinking on this post for a couple of weeks since you first posted it because while "offended" is not the right word for how I felt about this post I am bothered by it in some ways.

If you found out that someone you are friends with is in an abusive relationship where they rape their significant other on a regular basis and didn't see anything wrong with it or plan to change it would you stay friends with that person?

Because you ARE friends with people who eat meat on a regular basis and don't see anything wrong with it and don't plan to change it.

If I found out about it and encouraged them to get counseling and they refused, and really said that didn't see anything wrong with it and didn't plan to change it, then yes, I would likely stop being friends with that person.

That is the very painful situation that I am struggling to deal with right now. I expect I will ultimately lose many friends over this issue. But it's too important for me to ignore any longer.

Perhaps we should agree to go our separate ways then. I am uncomfortable being friends with someone who considers me the moral equivalent of a rapist.
