    "The Ethics of Eating Meat" -- why is that a question of ethics? It's a question of kindness, not of ethics, I suggest. I challenge any proponents of veganism or vegetarianism who oppose meat-eating on moral or ethical groudns, to show me that not eating meat and not slaughtering animals in an inhumane fashion is not only kidnness, but also a strong moral code.

    People call it unethical to raise, slaughter and eat animals inhumanely. I suggest it has nothing to do with ethics; it has to do with kindness, or the lack of it.

    Why drag ethics into it?
