Morrissey Compares Eating Meat To Pedophilia

From here...
This story is a couple of days old but it is so ridiculous I just have to say something. I'm afraid I'm not that familiar with the Smiths, but apparently it's former lead singer, showing an immense lack of critical thought, has said,
"I see no difference between eating animals and paedophilia. They are both rape, violence, murder,"
I don't know how he figures eating meat is rape, for instance, unless he has a different definition of rape, but it would be interesting to hear his explanation.

But my question is not only for him, but others like Pamela Anderson or Paul McCartney, who stand so adamantly against something like, say, our seal hunt.  And my question would be this, "Where do you draw the line?" At what point is it OK or not OK to take something's life? Is it cuteness? Have you ever set a mouse trap? Have you ever swatted a mosquito? I would like them to explain exactly what they see as the difference.

Have they, or this Morrissey guy ever eaten a slice of bread made with wheat from a field that was treated with insecticides? At what point to they compromise their stated or alleged principles? Where's their line, because they certainly have one. Otherwise they should be out protesting flyswatter manufacturers.

Just askin',

Freedom From Religion? Really?

I was reflecting on the various antics of the Freedom From Religion Foundation, and it struck me that if they get their way, which can really be narrowed to, "freedom from Christianity," they will not have accomplished their stated aim, but will have replaced a relatively benign and benelovent religion with one they will find far more oppressive.

The way things are looking, if Christianity is replaced in Western Society, it will not be by atheism, but by Islam.

Just sayin'
