Eenie, meenie, miney, mo -
What shade of grey does your compassion show?
Many say that life doesn't provide us with black and whites... Nor does morality. Many believe everything exists in a nebulous, shades-of-grey world.
Here's the story of an accident involving a cargo of cows. The double decker truck didn't clear an overpass and several "passengers" were injured. The cow-owner had to euthanize 7 of them.
Here's the quiz: Since animal ag claims they "care" for their "stock" - When was it exactly that the farmer "cared" most? Was it when he originally loaded the cows to go to slaughter? When he killed the "damaged" ones? Or when he loaded the rest to continue their journey to the knock box?
Of course this is a rhetorical question... Anyone with the gumption to do a smidgen of honest thinking would know that when it comes to taking lives... There is no gradient degree of compromise. This applies too if you're paying someone to do the killing for you! It's just plain black and white wrong!
If you're not doing it now - please consider living your life in a thoughtful way. There's absolutely no justifiable reason to not be vegan. None.
