Beef steak and Vegetarians   3 comments

It seems that vegtarians have a lot to thank Beef steak for, well according to the BBC News this morning.

To quote the BBC:

The Beefsteak chapel hardly sounds like a place where vegetarians would be welcome, but more than 200 years ago, this tiny chapel in Salford was the British birthplace of the meat-free diet.

In an even greater twist, the cleric who preached the moral virtues of vegetarianism was the Reverend William Cowherd. His Beefsteak Chapel was the country’s first vegetarian church.

  1. Haha! You wouldn’t have had me in mind when you wrote this? I write about meat and you write about vegetarianism 😀

    But interestingly, vegetarianism was around for years (hundreds of them) before that, and Christianity was a bit of a set-back apparently. (but that’s a wiki peek so may not count).

    People are veg for lots of reasons, ethics, health, poverty, religion.

    • It was more about the Rev’d Cowherd based in the beef steak chapel that somewhat amused me. As for the accuracy of the story my source was a journalist, what more can I say. Interesting piece on the news this evening, seems the police officer who accused the Tory politician of calling other police officers plebs actually wasn’t within 10 miles of Downing St. at the time of the incident. He has now been arrested.

      Who can you trust.
