We pray protest for better, peaceful world, but unflinchingly contribute to another form of cruelty & violence daily
We stand up against racism, but unflinchingly say “animals were created by God for us to eat”
We stand up against slavery, but unflinchingly breed billions of other Earthlings into a short miserable life of slavery before their brutal slaughter.
We stand up against mysoginy exploitation, but unflinchingly exploit fellow female Earthlings for their milk & eggs and kill her male offspring.
We want change, but don’t want to change.
We are against racism, bigotry, slavery, exploitation, misogyny and all other forms of injustice and discrimination – but when it comes to non-human Earthlings, it somehow becomes OK.. makes absolutely no sense. .
“You are diseased in understanding and religion. Come to me, that you may hear something of sound truth.
Do not unjustly eat fish the water has given up, And do not desire as food the flesh of slaughtered animals, Or the white milk of mothers who intended its pure draught for their young, not noble ladies.
And do not grieve the unsuspecting birds by taking eggs; for injustice is the worst of crimes.
And spare the honey which the bees get industriously from the flowers of fragrant plants; For they did not store it that it might belong to others, Nor did they gather it for bounty and gifts.
I washed my hands of all this; and wish that I Perceived my way before my hair went gray!” – Al-Ma’arri
“As long as Man continues to be the ruthless destroyer of lower living beings, he will never know health or peace. For as long as men massacre animals, they will kill each other.” – Pythagoras
