Moo-ving people toward compassionate living
From Wayne Johnson - 12 Jul 2005
If it is true that Cows, Chicken and Pigs have personalities, intelligence and the ability to express love and receive love, then there is no logical reason for us to kill for our food.
Eat a piece of fruit or a veggie at least you don't have to kill it to eat it. The only reason people do eat these animals is for the taste and taste only but to me that is a bad reason to eat something just because it taste good.
Unfortunately in our culture meat eating is glorified. Look at the big Mac of McDonalds, Wendy's, Burger King, KFC, Swiss Chalet, Red lobster etc. Practically ever restaurant's main course is meat based. But People need to realize that a lot of fruits, vegetables, nuts are very delicious and very taste too.
We need to educate our youth by letting them spend time and getting to now these animals. Let them go to these so called meat packing plants, Let them know where their food is coming from.
Unfortunately for me, I was raised and bred on these animals and developed a taste for them. Now I wish I hadn't. I'm changing my way but getting a lot of resistance from family and society. And it is hard weaning off meat because I believe you get addicted to the taste but I have cut way back and eating more fruits and veggies and feeling better.
Hope to hear from you soon God Bless.

Thank you very much for writing and for your compassionate switch toward a vegetarian diet.
There is something very interesting about our sense of taste; it is learned, and can be retrained in about three weeks. What people really like about meat is the seasonings, which can also be applied to veggie dishes. When we serve a vegan dish where there are also meat dishes, ours is usually gone first. Once people get off of meat for a while, the flavor and smell can actually become sickening to many people.
We look forward to hearing from you again.
In the Love of the Lord,
