Memorable Quote

"People need to be desensitized to the suffering of others gradually. A society that teaches that the suffering of animals doesn't matter is well on its way to raising future sadists. Virtually every serial killer in America will tell you tales of a childhood spent tormenting frogs, cats, and dogs. This is no coincidence. The scale from swatting flies to knowingly eating the results of farmers who treat animals inhumanely to cold-blooded murder is a continuum with a slippery slope. How much blood is on your hands?"
