The question is what kind of religion and what kind of meat. For example, in Buddhism, oddly enough, there is generally no prohibition on meat food. It is not desirable, but not prohibited. Although Buddhists often become vegetarians. Vaughn, Lisa Simpson is a classic example. In Islam, there is a strong Koran ban on pork. In addition, the classical faith forbids meat in general for all animals that were not killed in the name of God. But Christianity is more liberal. Meat food is not forbidden there, with the exception of fasting time. In a rather rare for Russia religion - Judaism allowed food from animals, with the exception of camel meat, elephant. Interestingly, they have banned almost all seafood (except fish). Like, it's a gift from God to live in water, but not to have fins. In Hinduism, banned is beef.This is logical, because a cow is a sacred animal for them) By the way, in Hinduism they are very positive about vegetarianism. Say, it is respect for living creatures.
