Animal lovers shouldn't eat meat

20 November 2012, 22:02

It is my pet-peeve: ‘animal lovers’ waxing lyrical over their beloved dog while eating a mouth full of steak. I feel extremely strongly about the daily murder of our fellow sentient beings and while you may drive past a chicken coop, I see a concentration camp.

While you say ‘slaughter-house’ I say holocaust. You call it a refrigerator; I call it a mortuary. 

I believe that not enough is done by vegetarians to speak out against these daily killings. Isn’t it ironic that while the atheists and Christians spend each day attacking each other, the REAL enemy is perpetual violence against animals?

God, Israel and the Gaza Strip get daily headlines, but animal murder gets zilch.

Imagine walking down the meat aisle in a supermarket and seeing a human arm cling wrapped next to the lamb knuckles. Or a human face staring up at you out of the freezer with a price per kilo sticker on the pack. Sound insane? Not the same thing? Well it is the same thing as and its disgusting.

I have noticed that meat eaters carry a lot of anger around inside of them. Wars are started by meat eaters, and it is claimed (not without reason) that meat eaters don’t just consume the flesh of their victims, they consume their pain and angst as well.

This pain morphs into an internal rage and what is called ‘emotional contamination’. It is not for nothing that most meat eaters support the death penalty and the bombing of Iraq.

They also like to hunt. Is there anything more sickening than a man who consciously decides to pick up a rifle and go in search of a sentient being (with a nervous system) to kill? Hunters are in essence serial killers which ever way you look at it.

The health benefits of a vegetarian diet are legendary. Famous vegetarians include Ghandi, Pamela Anderson, Ghengis Khan, Moby and Ellen De Generes. Politicians like Benjamin Franklin, Pot Pol and Socrates were also vegetarians. So was Leonardo da Vinci! 

I challenge you to try the vegetarian diet for just one week. Notice how good you feel and also how well your bowels work. The roughage in your diet will clean your insides out like a pipe cleaner.

Ever wonder why animals don’t need toilet paper? That is because their diets are proper.

If you ate the correct food for your body you would not need one scrap of toilet paper. So besides saving on your food bill, you will save on toiletries as well. You will feel extremely content, focused and more in tune with nature.

Its difficult to describe how amazing you will feel without the Meat Heads accusing you of being sanctimonious.

But none of these benefits will compare with the feeling of knowing you are doing the right thing. It is time to fight back against the Meat Bullies.

The time for posing is over.
