The glory of God is living man - not veganism

The leaf-eaters are back!

The latest says this:

"Aren't humans amazing? They kill wildlife - birds, deer, all kinds of cats, coyotes, beavers, groundhogs, mice and foxes by the million in order to protect their domestic animals and their feed.

Then they kill domestic animals by the billion and eat them. This in turn kills people by the million, because eating all those animals leads to degenerative - and fatal - health conditions like heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, and cancer.

So then humans spend billions of dollars torturing and killing millions more animals to look for cures for these diseases.

Elsewhere, millions of other human beings are being killed by hunger and malnutrition because food they could eat is being used to fatten domestic animals.

Meanwhile, few people recognize the absurdity of humans, who kill so easily and violently, and then call for Peace on Earth".


He's quoting (apparently) from the "Revised Preface to Old MacDonald's Factory Farm" by C. David Coates, so he says.

And - you guessed it - of course he, she or it is a vegan.


Mr Shark will insist on eating meat but no vegan or animal libbers ever campaigned against his cruelty. Why not - if animals are equal to humans?


Let's analyse, shall we?

They kill wildlife - birds, deer, all kinds of cats, coyotes, beavers, groundhogs, mice and foxes by the million in order to protect their domestic animals and their feed.

Nope.

They kill birds, deer and other animals to eat.

They kill coyotes and wild cats to protect other humans, particularly children.

They kill rats, foxes, mice and other vermin to prevent the spread of disease.

Wrong, Mr Vegan!

Then they kill domestic animals by the billion and eat them.

Nope.

You can count on the toes of one hand the number of people who freely choose to kill and eat their own domestic cats and dogs.

Wrong, Mr Vegan!

Who eats domestic dogs? No-one, of course, unless they are literally starving and probably not even then. Wake up, Mr Vegan!


This in turn kills people by the million, because eating all those animals leads to degenerative - and fatal - health conditions like heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, and cancer.

Nope.

Eating animals that you hunt and kill is healthy and avoids those diseases.

It is eating the factory-farmed poisonous garbage that fast food and factory producers spew out onto the market that kills humans.

But Mr Vegan is too busy denying nature to worry about that.

Wrong, again, Mr Vegan!

So then humans spend billions of dollars torturing and killing millions more animals to look for cures for these diseases.

Nope.

The science industry pretends to do that but actually it wastes most of its time pursuing ridiculous schemes simply in order to preserve jobs.

But Mr Vegan is too busy denying nature to worry about that.

Wrong, again, Mr Vegan!

Elsewhere, millions of other human beings are being killed by hunger and malnutrition because food they could eat is being used to fatten domestic animals.

Nope.

There is more food available now than ever before and enough to keep feeding the whole world over and over. It does not reach the starving or poor because of selfish and corrupt political regimes, not because of meat-eaters.

But Mr Vegan is too busy denying nature to worry about that.

Wrong, again, Mr Vegan!

Meanwhile, few people recognize the absurdity of humans, who kill so easily and violently, and then call for Peace on Earth.

Nope.

The real absurdity is represented by those human beings who refuse to address the real issues and instead go down the blind alley of pretending that meat-eating is unnatural when most of the animal kingdom does precisely that.

Do vegans campaign against animals who eat meat?

No.

Yet, they think animals are the equal of humans.

Well, then?

Go tell those meat-eating animals to stop at once!

Then there are those animal lib terrorists who set fire to laboratories or put poison in products in order to kill human beings.

It is they who “kill so violently and easily and then call for peace on earth”.

Animal libbers claim to be for peace and against violence but will hypocritically put poison in products and set fire to laboratories.


Fortunately not too many people take these hypocrites at all seriously.

God gave us nature to use and enjoy for our own benefit. We should use it wisely and sustainably but that does not mean we should not use it.

Every animal uses nature for sustenance and enjoyment.

Human beings, however, have the greater right because humans are not merely animals. They are rational beings created in the image of God.

Animals do not have rational souls. Where are the animal writings, works of art, poetry and literature, science and scholarship? Where are the animal works of architecture? Where are the animal space programmes? Where are the animal works of mercy and charity? Where are the animal governments, laws and constitutions?





What animal can compose music, let alone music of the sublime quality of Allegri's
Miserere?

None?

Too all but an animal libber, it is perfectly clear that humans are vastly superior to animals in every way.

Animals have their place but man is far higher and created in the image of the Divine Creator.

Man also has free will so man can do evil. Then he falls far below any animal and becomes more like a devil. But that is the consequence of having free will.

Animal libbers would have us all behave like animals but, in so doing, we would all become more like devils, not animals.

Hitler, let us not forget, was an animal libber.

If man chooses good then he becomes more and more himself and more and more the image of He who made him.

Thus, then, says St Irenaeus:

"the glory of God is living man”



St Irenaeus, pray for us!

I think you'll find domestic animals means things like cows and sheep.

Actually the Koreans and Phillipinos do eat domestic dogs; in fact, they consider them a delicacy.
But other than that, you're right. People who worry about the mental anguish of poultry and rats clearly have way too much free time on their hands.

I gather you're not a fan of the US Catholic Colman McCarthy?

Oliver said...

These people are so ludicrous, why bother arguing with them?

Tribunus said...

Dear country girl, you sound very lovable.

But are cows and sheep really "domestic" animals?

Doesn't "domestic" mean "pertaining to the home"?

Kyle said...

Etymologically speaking the word domestic refers to the house or home, but domestic animals includes all those animals that have for long periods of time been bred specifically for human use.

This includes pets which are bred for the pleasure they give to families and livestock for the food and other materials that their bodies provide.

Of course not all pets are necessarily domestic animals. I used to keep Iguanas as pets but iguanas are not domesticated at all.

How could your good God create something as horrible as this and other parasitoids?:

Hi Kyle.

Nope.

Domestic animals live in the home and do not include cows bred for food.

If you think otherwise then you are in a minority of one (or maybe two).

Anonymous,

Actually, a better question might be "how could God create anyone as boringly repetitive and dull-witted as Anonymous?".

Your question amounts to asking "why is there evil in the world?".

It has been answered but you just couldn't be bothered to look it up.

It's simple: evil exists because God allows it and in allowing it God does good, because thereby He allows a greater good, namely freedom, especially freedom of the will.

Freedom means the ability to choose bad as well as good.

This world has evil in it.

The point of life in this world is to face the evil and overcome it by choosing good.

If we do that then - AND ONLY THEN - do we go to a place where there is no evil i.e. heaven.

If you choose to prefer to believe that evil is somehow natural, inescapable, arising from evolution or natural selection and can never be avoided, then you will get what you wish for and will be permitted to spend eternity with evil.

Your choice, buddy. You have the freedom.

Over to you.

I realized where we may have missed each other. Domestic does refer to animals living in the home but domesticated simply means tamed or bred for human use, or as the opposite of tame. I consulted a few dictionaries to be sure and they listed cattle, horses, and sheep as domesticated (not domestic). So my mistake.

Dull-witted, perhaps, but surely not repetitive since this is the first time I've brought up that issue.

Anyway, thanks for the response.
