An Eye Opener

You could die tomorrow. So, buy the shirt. Get your hair wet in the pool. Ride the rollercoaster. Speak up for what you believe is right. Spend the money. Eat the ice cream. Tell him that you love him. Sleep until the sun wakes you up. Take care of yourself. Cut your hair. Dance in the rain. Stop eating meat. Post whatever the hell you want. Get into trouble. Sneak out. Because tomorrow, well, tomorrow, could be your last day.

    I’m not vegetarian; though I infrequently eat mammal meat, I do enjoy eating prawns or shrimp pretty much on a weekly basis. Still, it really is something to hear some people coo at an adorable little piglet on TV, only to eat a hardy bacon/sausage-and-egg breakfast the next morning conscience-free. …

    While I don’t believe that God required blood and pain ‘payment’, from Jesus or anyone else, I do factually know that the creator’s animals have had their blood literally shed and bodies eaten in mindboggling quantities by Man. And maybe the figurative forbidden fruit of Eden eaten by Adam and Eve was actually God’s four-legged creation.

    I can see that really angering the Almighty — a lot more than the couple’s eating non-sentient, non-living, non-bloodied fruit. Mainstream Christianity doesn’t speak up much at all about what we, collectively, have done to animals for so long.
