The Many Conflicts of Meat-Eating

Tim Carman, writer for the Washington Post, notes that eating meat in our country is no longer a trivial matter, but one of internal conflict. Consumers are now more aware than ever before about the implications of eating meat and how this translates into environmental devastation, health issues and animal suffering. Of course, animal advocacy groups, health organizations and environmental groups help by targeting people, starting at a young age, and exposing what animal agriculture entails. Please visit Eating meat, with a side of internal conflict:

Eating animal products is of profound consequence at many levels. First and foremost, we are creating misery in the lives of God’s animals by not allowing them to live the celebratory lives they should, enjoying and rejoicing by exercising their God-given instincts and drives. Moreover, by supporting animal-based agriculture we are also contributing to the misery that workers at factory farms and slaughterhouses are subjected to, having to systematically abuse and kill one animal after another. Something most of us would never choose to do. Adding to this is the environmental devastation and health crisis to which the standard American diet contributes. Animal agriculture does not benefit God’s Creation in any way.
