Is it ok to be a vegetarian if I just don’t like the fact the animal I’m eating was slaughtered and that idea disgusts me?
Being a vegetarian is halchically acceptable. There is no time when there is a strict obligation to eat meat [in our times]. The Torah view on shechita – ritual slaughter is that this is one of the many ways we are intended to uplift and sanctify the physical world. Shechita is humane and moral and when there was and will be a Bais Hamikdash [Temple] there were in fact obligatory times to eat meat.
