Once and for all, Hitler was NOT a vegetarian

People love teasing me with the idea that history’s worst person and the murderer of 6-million Jews, Adolf Hitler, was a vegetarian.

I don’t know where this rumor started, but it positively not true. Here’s The Guardian’s recent piece about Hitler’s favorite foods – and the last time I checked squab, trout, and liver did not grow on trees.

On the other hand, here’s someone in history who, evidence suggests may have been a vegetarian: Jesus Christ. Wow, just think, if Jesus was a vegetarian, he’s probably heartbroken at how the world treats animals.

In honor of National Vegetarian Awareness Month

Please remember that all beings are beautiful and worthy of life.

“He who is cruel to animals becomes hard also in his dealings with men. We can judge the heart of a man by his treatment of animals.” Immanuel Kant

“If a man earnestly seeks a righteous life, his first act of abstinence is from animal food.”
Albert Einstein

“All beings tremble before violence. All fear death. All love life. See yourself in others. Then whom can you hurt? What harm can you do?” The Buddha
