2019 Donation Drive

It's time for our annual Server Donation Drive! We need to raise at least $650 (same as last year) to keep The Cauldron's server online for another year. Please help! Either hit that Paypal button to the right and make a one-time donation in any amount or set up a monthly Bronze, Silver or Gold Donor subscription. You can find more info in this message!

Donations as of 13 Sept 2019: $656 donated. $6 more our minimum goal! Let's beat last year's total of $99 more than the minimum!


Note: This total is updated manually, usually once a day


* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Any other vegans here?
« on: June 18, 2014, 05:57:26 pm »
I have been a vegetarian about 3.5 years, a vegan about 2 of those years.  If you are also a vegetarian or vegan, did you do it for spiritual reasons?  How long have you been on this diet?

I transitioned to avoid supporting factory farming for ethical reasons but my ethics are also part of my spirituality.
My personal moral code:

Love wisely, and do what thou wilt.

This is pretty much my position.  I'm a "mostly vegetarian".  I raise and slaughter all the meat I eat myself, which isn't much (just a few chickens, and their eggs, and rabbits a year).  Knowing and caring for the critters I consume is part of my spirituality, for sure.

I've been pretty much vegetarian now for nearly 40 years. I hate the way meat is produced so I refuse to support it by buying it. In theory I should have no problem with consuming ethically raised meat but in practice there are plenty of alternatives available to me.

Nothing to do with my spirituality though - just my own moral compass.  As humans are actually adapted to be meat eaters, I should be a meat eater.
