If you want to read the article, click on the link below. I posted the article in my primary blog because I felt it belonged there more than here. It's a heavy rant speaking of my reasons for becoming a vegetarian and some people may find it offensive. It's not a good entry to post alongside my recipes.
Here's a quote pulled right out of that entry:
I don't want to have to kill sentient beings to live because, as far as I'm concerned, I can maintain a perfectly healthy existence without relying on the death of living, breathing beings. Animals can have a fruitful existence and serve an ecological purpose for the Earth without me killing and eating them.
