Eat meat and cheat, lie, steal, fight… Joke!

From a news article on the BBC site, about unusual passages in Indian text books:

A national textbook for 11-year-old students created uproar in 2012 when it was discovered that it said that people who eat meat “easily cheat, tell lies, forget promises, are dishonest and tell bad words, steal, fight and turn to violence and commit sex crimes”.

I found this a bit funny. Sometimes I’d like to think it’s true, but unfortunately, while I  totally agree that people who eat meat are usually that way, vegans and vegetarians, while more ‘righteous’ in my book, are still perfectly capable of doing all of the above. 🙁 By now, I’m completely disillusioned when it comes to the great majority of people, all kinds of people.
