Unforeseen demands in my personal life will briefly restrict my on-line activities... I know there are comments previously left that I have not responded to yet... I know my friends will bare with me as I regroup.
But in the meantime I want to post this very important news about an event that will take place (tomorrow) on the morning of July 14th.
Two of the most effective advocates I can name, Gary Loewenthal and Colleen Patrick-Goudreau will be interviewed by animal agriculture spokesperson Trent Loos on his show Loos Tales.
For those who might not know (and where have you been?) - Gary Loewenthal is one of the founders of Compassion 4 Animals and the very successful Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale is his brain child.
Vegan cookbook author and speaker, Colleen Patrick-Goudreau hosts the ever popular Food for Thought podcasts that is a gateway for those who want to learn how to be Compassionate Cooks.
Our movement not only has the power of truth on it's side, but some of the most articulate, passionate and thoughtful advocates we all could ever hope for... Gary and Colleen are the finest among them.
This interview will be posted here after 10AM and will be available for one week afterward.
I think it's unanimous, that we all hope reason and all it's rewards makes it's presence known and understood for the good that it is.
On the other hand, Mr. Loos will endeavor to convince his audience that the issues of animal killing are not all that serious... He will compare activists to Hitler and say we are "driven by guilt". He will use words like "respectful harvest" and reduce lives to the "production" purposes he (profitably) sees fit. He will suggest that the old social norms are acceptable and ought not to be challenged.That has always been the carnist's mantra. But the very idea that this "first" debate is occurring proves that to be all wrong.
This discussion on the severity of animal killing will only escalate in the future, as this topic is brought to the light of critical thinking minds. In academic halls, public libraries, shopping malls and employee break-rooms - May the conversations be civil with human enlightenment as it's goal, as the voices of the invisible are finally heard!
