My religion is my moral guide, and it grants me the right to eat meat.
There are many religions with many diverse teachings on the topic of eating meat. In some, there are prohibitions against eating certain animals. In others, it is permissible to both sacrifice animals and eat them. However, it is important to remember that religious permission is not the same as religious imperative. In other words, simply because your religion permits you to eat meat, that does not mean it requires you to do so.
Most religions advocate free will and compassion. You can exercise compassion by choosing not to eat animals and instead choosing to adopt a vegan lifestyle. This choice is better for your health, the animals, the billions of people who do not have enough to eat and the Earth itself. In making it, you exercise compassion for those more vulnerable than you are, both human and non-human. This means that veganism can help you live in alignment with your religious beliefs. Further, it is morally right to mitigate the suffering of others when you can, and being vegan helps you do this, while eating animals causes and perpetuates suffering. Therefore, while your religion might not prohibit eating meat, it likely prohibits hurting others, which makes eating meat morally wrong.
