Jonathan Safran Foer on Being Vegetarian

Jonathan Safran Foer, author of the acclaimed book "Eating Animals" will be in Sydney at the Festival of Dangerous Ideas, speaking about eating traditions, eating fictions and not eating animals. Safran learned first hand about factory farming during his 3-year research on the subject which included a visit to a turkey factory farm in the middle of the night. What does Foer think about being vegetarian? He says, "There are ideas that can literally put you in physical danger, which this one can,"... "There are ideas that are socially dangerous, which this one is. There are ideas that are dangerous because of their potential to change things in a dramatic way, which this one also is. So by most definitions, I would say that not eating animals is a dangerous idea." To read the article please visit Being vegetarian a dangerous idea: Foer:

Jonathan Safran Foer showed a lot of courage when he decided to find for himself what factory farming is all about, and later on writing one of the best books on the subject in order to expose the inherent cruelty of raising God's animals for food and the devastation this causes in God's Creation. Being vegetarian definitely challenges the status quo, which seems blinded by taste and profit trumping compassion and ethics on its way. Being vegetarian is to stand for what is right, to expose victimization and to be the voice of victims. Being vegetarian is to honor God's Creation.
