Yeah exactly!  I think a community that has both vegans/veggies and
omnivores would work just fine, as long as everybody's tolerant as you say.
 Unfortunately that is often not the case.  I could see potential problems
with vegans being disturbed by others in the community raising and/or
hunting animals.

Sigh... it ain't easy trying to save the world... :-)
