“Veganism is like a religion” (or a cult)

“You believe that it’s morally OK to eat animals. This belief was planted in your brain at an early age, before you
could think for yourself. It's a belief so fundamental that you'll create any number of crazy justifications rather than
examine it.
Your belief is continually bolstered by the fact that those surrounding you share that belief, including
figures of authority. Those who don't share your belief are either ridiculed or forcefully shunned as deranged and
dangerous infidels...
...so maybe you're the one that's in a cult, and I'm here to break you out."
