Hog roast; killing is killing, cruelty is cruelty
In reply to Kevin Moore’s letter, I would reiterate the three churches participating in the event were fully aware a pig was to be slaughtered and roasted.
The point I am making is that the Church remains silent on these issues as there is nothing to discuss. There is no argument: killing is killing and cruelty is cruelty. That Kevin Moore likes to chomp on strips of rotting flesh doesn’t make it right. It is not a matter of choice anymore than it is a matter of choice to beat one’s wife. There is a victim here.
He may like to Google Martin Niemoller’s provocative poem:
First they came ... “then they came for the Jews and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak out for me.”
Maybe it’s time to check your living room, Kevin: there may be an elephant in it.
