10. I understand the point.

I would not expect pork at a Hebrew or Islamic prepared meal. Nor would I object. Just like I would not expect beef at a Hindu meal.

Again, I would not inflict my lack of belief on anybody, as long as they did not inflict theirs on me.

But, of course, I would honor dietary rules if I were invited to dine. And I have done so, usually amongst the best meals ever.

I absolutely do not see individual dietary choices as anything other than what they are, whether religiously based or otherwise, a personal choice. And only a complete jerk would ask for a hamburger in a vegan or Hindu household.

Respect is what it is all about, whether one is a believer or otherwise. (Something we all need to understand.)
