The Good News About Pork

April 13, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 137

After years of criticismand frequent episodes of outright hostility, some members of various religious communities seem to be turning over a new leaf.

No longer considered to be the scourge of the religious right Thinking people all across the globeare pounding upon their tables, lifting their knives and forks to their mouths, and pledging a new type of religious reform.Such narrow-minded bigotry will no longer be tolerated After all, what is the difference betweencows, chickens, horses and pigs? And at the risk of offending some of my friends who are tigers, alligators, turtles, porpoises and deer I say enough is enough!

Besides, what kind of person would discriminate against an animal who was born to have four tiny three-inch legs? But when I think about it, somehow it comes as no surprise Shallow people have been born to drown people who might have had the urge to try to swim too deep

So before you begin to swallow your courage, pack up your bags and abandon your gumption I would suggest that you begin to hold out just a wee bit longer Because any optimistic person will surely seethat it can't be all that bad Certainly every Tom, Dick and Harry is surrounded by a Gorgeous George, Happy Harold or Bartholomew James

Thus, there is no need to become trapped in a labyrinth of subterfuge Because enlightened perspectives could be available to those who choose to keep an open mind So maybe the first step is to rid yourself of any preconceptions when it comes to animal meat This may not be so difficult as it is arguable that we are all really fine young cannibals at heartAnd it is widely known that the differences in quality and grade may often be quite indistinguishable when both nostrils have been pinched from the outside just below the bridge

But beyond all of this conjecture I would venture to say that the issue is merely a matter of principle The tastiness of pork must be pushed to the forefront And in the end it must be the ultimate measure of culinary fortitude Any effort to engage in spiteful rhetoric is clearly the vestige of an arcane and underdeveloped system of thought When equal opportunity exists the best of the pigs will cross hurdles that they have never done before So there is no reason for other creatures to offer their patronizing words of advice. Because we are quite confident that the pigs can make it on their own. And for this we are quite thankful, nonetheless!
