Quit bickering

I’m very tired of hearing people argue with one another in letters to the editor. Everyone is entitled to his own opinion.

As a vegetarian, I don’t eat meat because I don’t like the thought of eating animal muscle. Although this is my opinion and feeling, I do not try to force other people to feel the same way. I accept and respect the fact that other people may enjoy eating hamburgers, just as I hope they would accept and respect the fact that I do not.

And to the person who says it is morally and ethically wrong to massacre or slaughter animals and eat them, may I ask what kind of shoes you wear? Chances are that you have at least one pair of shoes which are made of leather.

I do not think that I need to tell where leather comes from (animal hides). This may sound sarcastic, but let’s not be hypocrites, now!

The moral of the story is: respect others and they will respect you. If you choose to eat meat, or choose not to, it’s your own choice. If you think you are entitled to feel the way you do then so is everyone else. It works both ways—so quit bickering!
