Omnivore? – 15 April 2009
If you haven’t read “The Omnivore's Rationalization” by Jill
Howard-Church from Animals and Society Institute, please visit
This is a very well-written, intelligent assessment of the disturbing
trend that I have been observing lately. For example, all the
white-washing or doublespeak used to rationalize the killing of animals:
the use of terms such as “humane slaughter”; the insistence on using the
words “product” for “animal,” “process” for “killing,” and “processing
facility” for “slaughterhouse.”
It is particularly puzzling (as well as disturbing) to realize that
there are those who claim to have left vegetarianism and resumed
meat-eating with a clear conscience by a rationalization that, in my
opinion, is simply lying to oneself.
I’m so glad that there are others out there like Jill Howard-Church
who has the courage to admit the truth.
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful. At the
same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the
world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true
peace and compassion.
