I know Hinduism (sp?), Janeism (sp?), and Seventh-Day Adventists promote a vegetarian or vegan diet. What other religions do?

Though not strictly vegetarian, members of the Latter Day Saint 
movement (Mormons) follow 
the Word of Wisdom (D&C 89) as revealed through Joseph Smith in 1833 
which states, in 
part:
"10 And again, verily I say unto you, all wholesome herbs God hath 
ordained for the 
constitution, nature, and use of manó
11 Every herb in the season thereof, and every fruit in the season 
thereof; all these to be 
used with prudence and thanksgiving.
12 Yea, flesh also of beasts and of the fowls of the air, I, the Lord, 
have ordained for the use 
of man with thanksgiving; nevertheless they are to be used sparingly;
13 And it is pleasing unto me that they should not be used, only in 
times of winter, or of 
cold, or famin" [ http://www.namaskarindiatravels.com ]
So the Latter Day Saint eats meat only sparingly and in times of need.
