I agree nochorame,t that just because you eat meat doesn't mean that you support cruel practices.

Thank you DQ. To get back on the original topic, they aren't "just fish" to fish lovers. But there is a line between people who eat meat and people that are cruel to animals.

No I think it is awesome that there are people like you who raise animals in such humane ways, but I have just viseted a facilility that made me decide to never again eat meat. And I don't beleive that God wants us to eat animals (I did a 30 page single spaced research paper on Religion and veganism and my Christain English teacher is now a vegetarian!) but I don't think I can go any deeper into that topic without getting into trouble with forum rules or anything.

I beg to differ because EVERY time that you eat meat you are eating an animal whos life has been ended early just so that you can eat him/her. If they died naturally it would be totally diff.

Well I really just want to ask one thing, what did God put animals on earth for then? Why did he make the predator/prey relationship? Why did he make us able to eat meat? And in the Bible, there are specific verses that say the meat you can eat. That's all I have to say on the topic, I just think that it's generalization to say we don't care about animals just because we eat meat. The animal would die either way, so it doesn't matter whether we eat it or let it get old and die and be eaten anyways.

But I'm sorry if I offended anyone or went against the rules.

Back to the "it's just a fish..." topic, anyone?

It would seem every time I bring this subject up it always goes back to being vegetarian when really it has nothing to do with it, lol...
