Eat Meat.

Today I was browsing Facebook being as productive as I *cough*cough* always am, and noticed that one of my friends had shared a link from the New York Times that had this big, daunting, and daring title yelling at me...

"Tell us why it's Ethical to Eat Meat: A Contest."

This was just more than I could bare!

1)Because I love meat.

2)Because I love a challenge.

3)Because I love meat.  Did I already say that? Oh well.


4)Because I love meat. Alot. Amen.

So I sat down and in about five minutes I had written a short article, essay, whatever you want to call it, over why meat is ethical.

I'm not sure it will get any point across, but it made me feel better, and it made me feel creative.  And I like to feel creative because I secretly wish I was Martha Stewart. Except for the fact that I don't wish I was Martha Stewart...make sense?

Please enjoy, critique, throw away, whatever your diggin'...I'll understand.

Why is it Ethical to Eat Meat?

Written by: Summer Townsend

                Being the daughter of a Cattleman most people would consider me somewhat bias on this particular topic.  While this may be true, it is also true that I am very open-minded and have a slight tendency to visualize myself as a hippie. And what do hippies do? Well, besides “freeing their minds” they eat very natural and healthy things.  People usually consider food like this to be anything but meat.  They are wrong on this part, because meat can be very healthy. More importantly than that though, meat is ethical.
                I’m about to tell you the reason eating meat is ethical.  Most of you are not going to want to hear it.  Most of are you are going to laugh in my face.  You may even get mad me.  Heck, you may see the first word and run away screaming for your mother.  Whatever your reaction may be, this is something you need to hear, because it is the only truth.
So here it goes….

“Everything that lives and moves about will be food for you. Just as I gave you the green plants, I now give you everything.” Genesis 9:3.

I know what you’re thinking, “This lady is crazy.” Or, “This woman needs to get a life, and off her Daddy’s ranch!” or my personal favorite, “She’s your typical bible thumper.”
So before you think these things, please just stop...breath... and consider the words I have given you.  God gave us meat.  He gave us greens too, both for our enjoyment, and nourishment.

It’s as simple as that.  Eat meat, because the good Lord gave it to you.

On that note, I leave you with this....


Peace, Love, & Let's all go have a steak together.
