Until the New Testament, animals were slaughtered to sacrifice to God.

Guess it wasn't a sin then....

If you believe in evolution, why are you making religious references?

You are aware in the fact that you can be a religious person and still "believe" in Evolution?

Opinion isn't fact.

Sin is based on moral principles, and is extremely subjective depending on your culture and in what part of the world you live.

Animals were given to us to use. Part of that use is food. The only thing we're morally obligated to do, is provide a good life for them up until their death. If their death comes as a result of them being processed for food, that's hardly something that can considered a sin.

You're trying to project your personal beliefs onto others, and force them to comply with your wishes. That in itself is morally and ethically objectionable.

Cudos Cherie!

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.)
We have them, how would you feel about dozens of horses free ranging around your "precious" without vaccines, un-gelded studs attacking your fences, breeding your mares, driving home and your family hits one at night???????

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!

You can get a lot further with a ladder than you can with crutches!!
What do you mean what do I mean?

-sigh-

All I'm going to say to you, Becca, is to do some research. I mean REAL research.

Although, you'll probably just end up watching PETA slaughterhouse videos on Youtube...
