The popular fast food chain is adding a new test dish to all the eateries in the Baltimore, Washington, Richmond and Philadelphia area. Sofritas have already been selling in California and parts of the Northwest.
The dish is vegan because God does not want people eating animals that He created.
Or humans torturing sentient beasts simply because they can.
Corporate flacks say this food is tasty enough to entice carnivores.
In any event, thank you and kudos.
Seriously, it is difficult to separate daily choices with faith. Too many use religion as a rationale for cruel and hateful behavior.
But others, listening to their beliefs, try to make compassionate decisions.
Presently, some of the most tortured animals in this country are not the feral ones scrounging for food and shelter but those held on farms until they are killed.
Some animals are murdered for sport or fashion. Seriously, no one eats mink.
Others say that leather and fur manifest efficient utilization of animals’ carcasses.
Steve King- not the genius writer who re-energized the horror genre but the horrible Congressman from Iowa recently added a rider to the Farm Bill.
It wasn’t enough to slash food stamps for vulnerable Americans-, which he and his caucus proposed.
But King also sought to remove every protection afforded to any animal. From puppy mills to the pigs that sit in gestation crates until they die.
It is now illegal to film the atrocities committed by agribusiness. Only the filming, not the act.
One solution is humane farming.
Faith and humanity is manifested by how we treat any person or animal capable of suffering.
