Our culture and traditions have come from such deep, dark paths. We really need to assess what we’re doing and why when it comes to all our learned habits, tastes, and rituals. We all interpret life in our own way. But, the reality of our actions is something we should thoroughly consider. Otherwise, we become the victim as well as the assailant of our mindless habits.
We should not discriminate when it comes to the victim of torture and murder. All animals have a right to live and share in this world free from senseless harm, like that inflicted by humans.
Killing chickens for a religious ritual is as absurd as eating chicken. Using another animal as a food source is absolutely not necessary in this day and time for modern civilizations. It is not healthy and it is not sustainable.
