I'm particularly drawn to one line that sums up the root of our disconnect from other species. "It's baffling that we are following rules that were written while we thought the world was flat." I see this time and again that followers of one religion or another all justify their habits and actions in the name of deity worship. Faith-based dogma that perpetuates the notion that animals are here "for" us and not "with" us, allows for the most ugly practices.
And if anyone wants to claim that today we operate under different standards, well... They are just fooling nobody. It's all superstitious rationalizations for stealing defenseless lives.
|The Price of Cheap Meat|
We sacrifice babies to steal milk and to eat eggs. We sacrifice some piglets to eat others. We sacrifice wolves, coyotes, other wildlife and domestic dogs to eat lambs and cows. We sacrifice our oceans to feed livestock. And we sacrifice humans to eat meat. Greed and gluttony is our modern gOd. Insatiable consumption is our arrogant prayer.
It's repulsive. It's depraved. And any honest person secular or not, can see it's evil.
“Why should man expect his prayer for mercy to be heard by What is above him when he shows no mercy to what is under him?”~ Pierre Troubetzkoy
Soon nothing will forgive us. Not the land. Not the air. Not the seas or the soil. Certainly not our fellow Earthlings. For what we do to others we do to ourselves. And may God help us for our Curse of Ignorance.
If you are living an ethical life I know you are as disgusted as I am with the worship of blood, money and human "privilege". Either you live ethically or "entitled". Vegans understand you can't do both.
