Welcome A.J, Vivian & Susan,
Thank you for joining our group. We look forward to meeting you!
How could it ever be our purpose to rob another living being of his or her purpose? As the saying goes, if God didn't want us to eat animals, He wouldn't have made them out of meat. Of course, the same could be said about humans to justify cannibalism. Or one might say that if God didn't want people to rape each other, He wouldn't have made them with suitable body openings. We cannot see the blindness and cruelty that always accompany our thinking that others exist for our purposes. Slave owners in the south couldn't see it, either. And yet, if we humans were the ones born into miserable confinement and routinely castrated, branded, raped, shocked, mutilated, and driven insane because we were viewed merely as tasty meat by a stronger and more "intelligent" species, we would certainly hope that this "superior" species would recognize that we have a greater purpose than being mere commodities to be imprisoned, killed, wrapped, sold, and eaten. We likewise must regain the intelligence we have lost through desensitizing ourselves to the undeniable truth that from the perspective of the millions of terrified animals whom we see only as food commodities, we are vicious terrorists.
