Re: “On the immense pleasures of eating meat, fish and dairy”, Have Your Say, January 23.
Robin Grant says he is happy to continue eating meat, fish and dairy because they have provided “a great deal of enjoyment for thousands of years”. I totally agree with Robin that Animal products taste good. I don’t know of anyone who ever gave up eating them because they didn’t taste good.
They gave up eating them because they learned about the enormous – and totally needless – suffering inflicted on animals in order to obtain these products. They also came to recognise that robbing other intelligent, life-loving individuals of their precious lives for something as frivolous as momentary tastebud pleasure was unjust.
Ye Old Theologian recently (January 19) drew our attention to the “golden rule” that calls on us to treat others in the manner in which we would want to be treated if we were them. My question to Robin is: would you want to be treated in the same manner in which you treat farmed animals?
