This is where I am going to be devil’s advocate. You really could make your point without eliciting a holier than thou attitude about the veggie deal. For starters, you were not even a vegetarian yourself until recently, and secondly, unless you went vegan as well, by your own logic, you are a “murderer” as well. Secondly, please, please, please, please do not ever use God to illustrate and try to make your point intellectual. I think you know it does not work. And finally, the point is that even if she eats a “murder” burger, it is still processed, along with her fries, so she is really not getting anything au naturel.
Sorry, you know I have to be devil’s advocate on this one…I wish that I had the willpower right now to be vegetarian, but right now I do not (guess I could if I really wanted to), so I, for one, do not appreciate being called a murderer! HMPH! Shall I eat humans instead?? YUM.
You make fine points, but let me add the following:
1) Of course my reference to God hating you was a joke. As was the murderer comment really. I guess the sarcasm didn’t come through. “God hates you” is the kind of argument a southern uber-Christian such as she might use against me for any number of reasons. I was being funny, or so I thought. Settle down, Beavis.
2) Eat humans? Is that a serious question? Don’t you know me at all?
3) Morrissey! Not for anything related to this discussion, but just in general.
Hee! We must rely on Morrissey to make all harmonious again. And yes, I got my panties in a bunch over it and even wrote a sassy blog of my own about how people offensively debate about certain controversial issues. I am sure you will appreciate it.
And do NOT ever call me Beavis again! What is wrong with you and these weird names?!
And yes, if I knew for sure that human was tasty and burnt to a crisp so as not to make known it was remotely human flesh, I would eat it wholeheartedly!
