Vegans believe that animals should not be abused, tortured, and murdered, to serve the interests and appetites of humans.
That belief flies in the face of the three great Abrahamic religions: Christianity, Judaism, and Islam.
One can be vegan or one can be a Christian, a Jew, or a Muslim.
But not both.
Veganism is a rejection of the god of the Old Testament.
Genesis 9:1-3 “The fear and dread of you shall rest on every animal of the earth, and on every bird of the air, on everything that creeps on the ground, and on all the fish in the sea; into your hand they are delivered. Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you; and just as I gave you the green plants, I give you everything.”
That is the doctrine of “dominion,” the supposedly god-given right of humans to enslave animals. To abuse, torture, murder, and consume them. It is a foundation of the Abrahamic religions.
Other foundations are equally vile. The same god worshiped by Jews, Muslims, and Christians demanded animal sacrifices to himself. He enjoyed the smell of animals’ burning flesh.
The god of the Old Testament is an animal murdering ogre. He is the enemy of animals. Of vegans. Of animal activists.
He is also the enemy of anyone who respects human rights. Of anyone opposed to slavery or genocide.
The god of the Old Testament condoned slavery.
Leviticus 25:44-46 “As for your male and female slaves whom you may have: you may buy male and female slaves from among the nations that are around you. You may also buy from among the strangers who sojourn with you and their clans that are with you, who have been born in your land, and they may be your property. You may bequeath them to your sons after you to inherit as a possession forever. You may make slaves of them, but over your brothers the people of Israel you shall not rule, one over another ruthlessly.”
God also commanded the genocide of the Canaanites, who were living in the Promised Land. He ordered every man, woman, and child, and every animal, to be put to death by the Israelites.
He killed the first born children of the Egyptians.
And in the Great Flood, he murdered millions of people and billions of animals.
Not a pleasant character.
Fortunately, he doesn’t exist. He is a fantasy. A tool for control of people, a weapon to keep people in line, to shore up the status quo, to frighten opposition to the powers that be.
Veganism is atheism. Veganism is the rejection of dominion, of myth, of fantasy, of sky wizards, of fairies, of ghosts and goblins.
Veganism is the recognition that all animals have the right to life, the right to be left alone, the right to be free of exploitation, of slavery, of torture, of murder.
Veganism is the declaration of independence for our fellow Earthlings. It is the battle cry of activists, the justification for direct action, the moral compass for the human race, the yardstick for humanity.
It is the essence of humanity.
And it is the guide for revolution.
