Feast of St. Francis of Assisi wasn't a vegan nor was he a vegetarian!

Let's get something straight. I've decided that vegans and vegetarians have a little less brains than meat eaters. Just because St. Francis is the patron saint of animals, doesn't mean he didn't eat meat. In fact, he did eat meat. He even encouraged others to eat meat!

You can love animals and still eat meat. Any real Christian knows this since it is very clearly written in the Bible.

Do not be fooled by all these blogs who blithely say that St. Francis was vegan, would want you to eat vegan and all that other nonsense. It is a bald faced LIE. Show me. Prove it.

Guess what? They can't because it isn't true.

Lois Rogers even notes this on her blog in the comments. She writes:
Franciscans aren’t vegan. In fact, St. Francis is known to encouraged the friars to consume lots of meat at Christmas in celebration. But mostly they ate very simple food that was heavy on vegetables.
She is absolutely and steadfastly correct in this. Do the research people and don't let some vegan nut job tell you a false history that doesn't exist. They need to get their act together and become more trustworthy if they want to have people join their "cause". Their way of eating isn't for health, it's for a frame of mind which is totally different.

So eat meat and enjoy people!
