Wagner vs. Nietschze
Nietschze, the philosopher said,
"Man must not eat meat."
Wagner, the composer replied,
"The life of man is a series of compromises. The only expiation is to do good. Man needs nourishment in order to do good."
Interesting excerpt from the diary of Cosima Wagner. Her husband gave Nietschze the life of St. Elizabeth of Hungary and Nietschze's only comment was that the work smelled more like incense than of roses.
At the end of the transcript Nietzsche says, "I noticed that I was already beyond all questions of dogma. For me what was important was the human being."
Like all liberal secular humanists who say they only want to do good and serve the human being, by ignoring the Divine and the laws of nature help to destroy him.
