People who are vegans should be vegetarian, according to one evangelical pastor who has a strong stance against the plant-based lifestyle.
The Rev. Matthew S. Lewis, pastor of the Faithful Word Baptist Church in Houston, Texas, told WND.
“The Bible says that meat is an abomination, and it is wrong for anyone to eat meat.”
Lewis said he has no problem with people eating meat, but he opposes vegetarians eating meat.
“I believe that a vegan is someone who does not eat meat,” Lewis said.
“A vegetarian is someone that eats vegetarian food.
I do not agree with the fact that people should eat meat because of the sinfulness of it.
But that does not mean that they cannot have good meat.
That is not my stance.”
Lewis also called for people to have a “vegetarian mindset” and for vegans to take a stance on issues such as the environment, climate change, and food sovereignty.
Lewis said vegans are not “bad” people, but that they should “do better.”
“People can eat meat and not be vegan, but if they do that and eat a lot of animal products, then they will be an abominable person.
We can have a vegan lifestyle that is very healthy, but people are not doing that,” he said.
Lewis has a long record of opposing animal rights and other animal-related causes.
He told WDTN-TV in Houston that he considers animal rights to be “anti-Christian,” and he believes that people who take an anti-Christian position on issues of food should not be allowed to preach on their own beliefs.
“If you’re an anti Christian, then you’re not going to be a pastor,” Lewis told WFTX-TV.
“You’re not getting a job because you’re a vegetarian, you’re going to lose your job.
You’ve just lost your job.”
The Reverend Matthew S Lewis, the founder of FaithfulWord Baptist Church, believes the bible teaches that vegans can’t eat meat.
He says vegans eat meat, so the Bible does not allow vegans.
(WDTN/WFTV) Lewis also said that people that are vegetarians should be vegan because “that’s what Jesus taught.”
He also said it’s important to look at the environment and how the animals are treated.
“It’s important that we respect animals, that we take care of the environment,” Lewis explained.
“But I don’t want to see vegans get in front of the media and say, ‘We’re vegetarians and we’re going vegetarian.’
I don`t want that.”
Lewis, who has been outspoken against animal rights, has made other controversial comments in the past, including claiming that animal cruelty is rampant in the United States.
In 2015, he made comments on his website, Faithfulword.org, that were so incendiary that some people took to Twitter to call him a bigot.
The website says Lewis is a member of the Southern Baptist Convention, and that he’s a “semi-retired pastor” with a personal background in biblical theology.
“Matthew S Lewis is one of the most outspoken anti-vegetarians on the planet, and he is a practicing member of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary,” Faithful Words website reads.
“His book, A Veggie Life: An Orthodox Christian Perspective on the Nature of Life, is a provocative and powerful message for Christians in the 21st century.
He also is a staunch defender of the sanctity of life.”
Lewis has also called on people to boycott the vegan burger chain Chipotle.
In 2017, he told WBTW-TV that he was disappointed in Chipotle because he believed the chain’s products were “grossly overpriced.”
Lewis is also a proponent of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement.
In his 2017 book, The New American: Why the U.S. Is in the Global Health Crisis, Lewis wrote that boycotting businesses that use animals is the “most effective way to bring about social change.”
The Boycott movement has been gaining steam over the past few years as more Americans are becoming aware of the plight of animals in the food supply.
According to the Humane Society of the United Kingdom, a vegan diet is “not the way to go,” and people should avoid eating meat entirely.
“There is no ‘right’ way to eat a plant-powered diet,” said Mary-Kate Davidson, senior vice president for education at the Humane World.
“What’s most important is that people stick to the plant based diet, but we are not trying to stop people from eating meat.”
The Humane Society also points out that vegan diets are rich in protein and fiber, which are important for keeping the body healthy.
But they also recommend that veggie burgers and wraps are not eaten out of hand.
“We don’t recommend that people do anything with
