Well said. I have no problems eating meat as well. I enjoy eating meat, and so I'll only stop eating meat if 1) I stop enjoying eating meat or 2) I start having ethical concerns about eating meat. Since I still love me some burgers and still don't have any ethical concerns about eating meat, I'll keep enjoying my burgers 'till I'm as fat as a cow (hehe).

I think they mean natural as in it happens all the time in nature, and normal as the sociological norm, as in, everybody does it.

There is the question, however, of whether there would be more vegetarians if more people were aware/in contact with where their meat comes from. I think that everybody should, at some point, be confronted with the reality of where meat comes from.
