This is like retribution...your words will come back to haunt you sort of stuff.
Here is the offending sentence:
The term NON-VEG originated in the belief that eating vegetarian is a cleaner, healthier, holier kind of thing to do. Therefore it follows as the night the day, Non-Vegetarian is the absolute opposite of all that is clean, healthy and holy.In the seventies when this bit of slang was in vogue here..it meant anything to do with sex...ahah. Anything.
AND it also, literally, meant eating Non-Veg, which was to be done surreptitiously by all those who lived in vegetarian households.Imagine all those grown men creeping out of the house to grab a bite of chicken leg.
The subtext is this-what is ethical in one mans book may not be moral in anothers.Deccanheffalump sayeth thusly: What is prescribed may not necessarily be the best , what is proscribed may not be the worst either.
Hope the following five have not been tagged already - the incredibly inventive Cook Sister ,a Pie Queen from Brooklyn, Lindy whose Toast is always crisp and warm, Chubby Hubby who muses on food ,wine and marriage and finally Susan of Farmgirl Fare to whose site I go to frequently for sustenance.
