Is eating meat a sin?

I don't eat meat--so no.

It would depend on what kind if you're going all biblical.

Would it be a sin to kill an animal to eat it? What about for sport?

But we are not talking about christians. I am talking about sin in general. What is right and wrong.

Still not a sin, in the sense that you mean it. However, I personally have an issue with our factory farming system, and the cruelty that uncaring corporations inflict on animals in the name of cheap burgers and nuggets.

There is no excuse for needlessly inflicting pain and suffering, if there is any way to avoid it. And we are learning more about the ability of animals to feel everything that we feel, to varying degrees based on neurological capacity... the very word "animals" is a bit of a misnomer, since we too are animals. We are vertebrate mammals of the Great Ape family. If you doubt that animals are just like us, take a peek at Koko's new kitten and tell me what you are, other than smarter, that she isn't:

If sin is only when you do harm to another. What about animals? Are they people? Are we animals? What's the difference?

Even though I love animals and I don't eat meat, I don't have a problem with people hunting--if it's done humanely and they use the entire animal for food, clothing etc. I would actually prefer people to hunt--it's much healthier to consume and it's much more humane than what goes on in some factory farms. My brothers all hunt for sport but they also use every bit of the animal they kill and they do it humanely. I have no problems with that. That said, I think killing an animal solely for sport and for no other purpose other than for a trophy is a shitty practice--you can call it a sin if you want to.
