Horrors inflicted at our bidding

As published in the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle - 31 Aug 2007

NFL player Michael Vick has pleaded guilty to federal dogfighting charges. Subjecting animals to any kind of abuse is evil and cowardly. The majority of persons who are judging Michael Vick are nothing more than hypocrites.

Millions of animals are slaughtered in factory farms each year. Not only are they forced to live in deplorable, inhumane conditions, they are drugged, tortured, maimed, slaughtered, boiled and skinned alive while fully conscious. Anyone who eats meat, cheese, eggs or drinks a glass of milk is directly responsible for the premeditated murder, torture and abuse of an innocent animal.

People who eat or use animal products are in effect paying slaughterhouse worker "hitmen" and "hired guns" to abuse and kill animals for them so they can wolf down a hot dog in five minutes. I have asked many self-proclaimed "dog/animal lovers" to view videos on the Web sites of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, and Humane Farming Association, and the majority refuse because they don't want to know or get upset. Hypocrites!
