So many things I want to say. I am a white, nonhomosexual, Southern Baptist man. Eating meat is a personal choice. So is being a homosexual woman. The letters I read in your rag telling me that eating meat is bad seem to come from those kinds of people.
I live in Leicester in the Newfound community across the street from a now-defunct slaughterhouse. If I had lots of money, I would buy it and refurbish it to its former glory. At present, I must transport my animals over an hour away to slaughter. Thank goodness I am allowed to harvest my chickens at home.
Humans will never look back in time and say, “Why did Granny eat meat?” The answer is because it tastes good.
It is very inappropriate to compare eating meat to killing Jewish people. God has given man dominion over the animals. We are to care for them, fatten them up and eat them.
I have purchased the book [The Ethical Meat Handbook] and use it almost daily. I eat vegetables, also. There are those who say that plants have feelings, also. Am I to stop eating them?
