To the Militant Vegetarian

*****

This might not sit too well with you or your other commenters, but Truth it is:

Research has proven plants to be more sensitive and intelligent than the most intelligent beast. Including ourselves.

And we eat them alive.

I applaud your conscientiousness in living your personal beliefs.

But when you start putting down the beliefs of others — you are missing the entire point of vegetarianism.

I’m sorry your mom made you serve up a brother’s butt.

I’m even sorrier that you can-hand shred innocent virgin lettuce without giving it a thought.

We ALL kill to eat.

Get off your high horse and down here on the ground with the rest of us.

Please, and thank you.
