Thought Of The Day. December 25, 2015

Instead of posting status updates on Facebook, I am now posting each apothegm, thought, observation, and witticism, here, as a Thought Of The Day.

Status updates on Facebook disappear into the ether and cannot be relocated by readers.

Today’s Thought:

With the exception of Jainism (practiced by a paltry couple of million adherents, primarily in India), all major religions are enemies of animals. Some are more cruel to animals than are others. Most Christians and Jews do not practice animal sacrifice, for example. Islam does. Kosher and halal are both indescribably cruel, but halal slaughter occurs on a much greater scale than does kosher slaughter, as the world population of Muslims dwarfs the world population of Jews.



Author’s Notes:

I am unaware of any other blog with the Armory’s mission of radicalizing the animal movement. I certainly hope I am not alone, and that there are similar sentiments being expressed by comrades unknown to me.

If you know of other blogs dedicated to animal rights and the defeat of capitalism, please comment with a link.

You will find recommended reading on Animal Rights, revolutionary theory, politics, economics, religion, science, and atheism. There is also a section of supplies for animal liberationists, hunt saboteurs, and social revolutionaries. This is all brand new, and we will be adding lots more merchandise in the near future!

Feel free to comment. I encourage open discussion and welcome other opinions. I moderate comments because this blog has been attacked by hunters and right wing trolls. I approve comments that are critical as well as those which agree with me. Comments that I will not tolerate are those that are spam, threatening, disrespectful, or which promote animal abuse and cruelty

  1. I agree. It is another of the travesties of religious practice that cruelty to animals is demanded. No country should be forced into accepting halal by accusations of “racism” or “bigotry.” Race and culture are two very different things. And just because something is a cultural tradition does not make it desirable, justifiable, or necessary.


    • Animal Rights atheists are constantly rebuked by people pointing to Jainism as proof of a compassionate religion. If Jainism permits dairy, the entire concept of a extant compassionate religion is debunked.


      • Not to be taken as a defense of Jainism which other than taking a very enlightened view towards non-human animals does have some very bizarre dietary beliefs, but dairy products obtained by extracting milk from domestic cattle or buffalo are not per se cruel. Taking milk from family cows in rural areas of Southwest Asia has little in common with industrial-scale agricultural practices that are the norm in the West. Anyone lucky enough to have grown up with a family cow knows the difference.


      • Right, Beth.
        Exploitation is wrong. Using food (milk) produced by any animal for anything but its offspring is exploitation
