When I was younger(though I am certainly not old) I hated the idea of slaughter--- although I was against all slaughter and was vegan for three years.

Once I got older, however, I began to understand the real world and now I am very pro-slaughter. I've written a zillion papers on it for school and it has allowed me to open the eyes of others, just as my eyes were opened. Do some research on the subject. It will open your eyes. Oh, and not from completely biased sources. (IE, Peta, HSUS, etc.)

You specifically SAID equine slaughter was a 'sin'. Um no, it's not.

Don't you live in Canada? I wouldn't be so high and might talking about how 'we' don't send animals to slaughter, when Canada currently has operating equine processing facilities.

Your opinions are based on emotion; mine are based on logic. You're certainly entitled to yours, but you've contributed nothing to the discussion except hyperbole and hysteria.

As far as your silly 'lols', please go back to your very first post. You're the one who kept putting them there.

I will ask again -- to these 24 people that are against slaughter:

What would you want done with hundreds of thousands of horses that are now being sold to slaughter in Mexico and Canada?

Just because YOU don't like the idea of slaughter does not mean that these horses will disappear like magic.

Would you prefer that they be turned out in State Parks and along highways to be hit by cars? (Many already are, by the way.)

Would you prefer that they be starved in a back pasture because someone cannot buy feed for them, cannot give them away and don't even have a sale that will be able to sell them?

I went to the local sale last Monday. Over 100 head sold. They went from $20.00 to over $1000.00. There was a big crowd in attendance. About 1/2 of the horses that went through the sale had no bids except from the killer buyers that ship to Mexico.

Where do think they will go if there was not a buyer there to buy them and take them to Mexico?

Don't tell me what 'should' happen and what others 'should' do. In the 'here and now', tell me what 'will' happen to all of these hundreds of thousands of horses that are completely UNWANTED and have no other place to go and no one that will feed them?

We're waiting!

The concept of "sin" comes from religion. Again I say, how many animals were slaughtered in the Bible?
