but yet the image of an assembly line of cows being slaughtered, skined, quartered and going into a meat grinder isn't enough for people to stop buying sausages at the deli.



it was enough for me... well actually not exactly that image, but I decided to become a vegetarian after I once looked for like 10 minutes at those poor fished who live in a fish store and await their destiny. I just stood there and watched these beautiful fishes, then I imagined that one of these living creatures is going to be killed next, then I said to myself, I shall not participate in this killing.




Are you aware that every year during the harvests millions of animals die crushed by the combines?

(is that the correct word? combine? you know those huge machines that harvest grain...)

I was going to skip on this but...

...there is no escape from killing others. Even insects beneath your feet count if considering from a Buddhist perspective. So, one might as well enjoy the squirrel stew.

I once had a friend who was a very devout Christian and a 'vegetarian'. I asked her why she was vegetarian and she said it was on moral grounds.

"I don't believe we should kill and eat God's creatures".
"But how come you eat fish?"
"Fish are ugly! If God hadn't meant us to eat them then he wouldn't have made them so ugly"
