Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!
And the Winner Is…

The NY Times has picked its winner among the finalist essays to the contest inviting people to explain why they thought eating meat was ethical. The winner picked by the panel of judges was Jay Bost, a former vegan. Please visit The Ethicist Contest Winner: Give Thanks for Meat to read his very weak arguments. It is important to note that the chosen essay by popular vote was Ingrid Newkirk’s explaining that the only possible way to ethically eat meat would be consuming only in-vitro meat.:

First of all, it's completely non-sense to try to explain why eating meat is ethical because eating meat involves the killing of an innocent sentient being against his/her will. This is simply unethical. Secondly, I think it's important to realize that if people are trying to find excuses to defend their omnivore diet, it is because they feel uncomfortable and threatened. This is a sign that deep down we all know that causing unnecessary harm and death to any being goes against our very essence, which is one of love, compassion, joy and peace. 
 
Note: Thank you to everyone who asked about my weekend at the World Peace Diet Conference with Will and Madeline Tuttle, and Judy Carman. It was simply FANTASTIC. I encourage everyone to attend it next time!
