I love animals and am a member of OSPCA(Ontario Society of Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) Animals are God's creatures too. A lot of people have taken them for granted.
I think that's part of the point Dirk is making - you belong to OSPCA and yet - you still eat meat.

With our sentimental notions of what species is fair game to be slaughtered, sliced and served and which is not. The line between McDonald's and McDoggie is much finer than anyone wants to admit.
What's the difference between beating a dog to death and using a hammer gun on a cow? They're both dead, one because of anger, the other because of appetite. But that's the thing about Dirk's article - it got you thinking about eating meat, considering your feelings about animals. Like a lot of people, it was probably something you never even considered before.
