Is your complaint the life of an animal is being taken without it's consent, or is it the crude and awful means by which it is taken?
If the first, your argument is nullified as it is clear that no animal is able to give consent (not in any way sufficiently recognizable to humans, at
least) to die for food.
If the latter but not the first, why don't you go watch several dozen videos on autopsies, surgeries, and funeral preparations.
If both ... you're quite unreasonable...
God made these animals so that we would have sustenance. If you don't believe in God then you can agree that we are at the top of the food chain and
have full right and reign to eat whatever animal(s) we please. If you don't believe either then you're in the unreasonable minority and you should
go take a bath in tofu and cry about it.
Before you go thinking that I'm some shotgun toting hick who is out for animal blood lust: I'm not a big meat eater. I enjoy chicken on occasion,
and a piece of beef or lamb once in a while. Not a fan of pork. I actually love vegetarian plates - especially greens! I even enjoy the tofu- and
wheat-based foods that look/feel/taste like meat (ie: a BBQ chicken sandwich that has the same texture and taste as chicken except it's made of soy).
It's actually funny when I hear people who talk about how disgusting it is to kill and eat an animal, yet they are perfectly willing to eat
something that looks/feels/tastes like one!
