How can a meat eating animal killer be truth personified?
You are using a false moral religious belief to prevent people from the pursuit of life, liberty, and happiness.
In todays world there would be much more poverty and disease amoung the people if we were prevented from killing any animals. There are many animal pests all over the world that must be controlled. An example of serious pests are those organisms which vector human disease, such as rats and fleas which carry the plague disease, or mosquitoes which vector malaria. There are also many animal pests that destroy vegetable and fruit crops.
In your religion, is it okay for other animals to kill and slaughter other animals for food? If not, then do you really expect us to stop them? And if it is, why is it just immoral for humans to kill animals for food? Do you realize that some animals have degenerated to the point that they would not survive long on just eating fruits and vegetables and that would be killing them anyway. Humans don't have the power to stop death, only God can do that.
In my religion, my God has allowed humans to eat not only vegetables and fruit, but meat from animals, because He loves us and cares for our well being over any of the other creatures He has created. But He promises a future time when...
The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb,
The leopard shall lie down with the young goat,
The calf and the young lion and the fatling together;
And a little child shall lead them.
The cow and the bear shall graze;
Their young ones shall lie down together;
And the lion shall eat straw like the ox.
The nursing child shall play by the cobra’s hole,
And the weaned child shall put his hand in the viper’s den.
They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain,
For the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord
As the waters cover the sea.
HalleluYah !!! Praise the LORD! Holy! Holy! Holy!
