Debunking the Virtues of Kosher Meat

February 2, 2010

This is nice: a Washington Post piece examines what kosher slaughter will and won’t accomplish in terms of creating safer and more environmentally-friendly meat. In its exploration of this topic, there’s plenty to unsettle devoted meat eaters.

What’s great is that this is exactly the sort of piece that would be read by someone with zero willingness to consider vegetarianism, and yet the last paragraph begins:

Of course, as the Lantern never tires of pointing out, the best way to green your diet is to cut back on meat in general.

Staunch carnivores are at once a frustrating but essential audience. It’s great to see an article of interest only to die-hard meat eaters urging its readers to reduce their meat intake. Link.
