Morrissey Sees No Difference Between Eating Animals And Pedophilia

Moz wants to lick your plate clean


















I always enjoy Morrissey’s rants about everything related to his strong conviction about being vegan and vegetarian, Thanksgiving and the slaughter of the turkeys, Beyonce and her handbags, the royals and their bad hunting habits, Duck Dynasty, he is always right and hilarious! But I am not so sure about this last one that I have just read in The Guardian! Morrissey is gonna lose any credibility with comparisons like this one. Always defending animal rights and crusading for veganism, Morrissey declared:

‘I see no difference between eating animals and pedophilia. They are both rape, violence, murder. If I’m introduced to anyone who eats beings, I walk away.’

Pedophilia? This comparison pedophile/carnivore is not going to sit well with people! I understand the predator connection, but it sounds a bit weird, even to me! This is why vegans and vegetarians are never taken seriously, this is too extreme and people laugh at it!

Morrissey said this during a Q&A sessions on his fan website, True to You’. And he was not in a shortage of outrageous comparisons, as he also said:

‘Imagine, for example, if you were in a nightclub and someone said to you: ‘Hello, I enjoy bloodshed, throat-slitting and the destruction of life,’ well, I doubt if you’d want to exchange phone numbers’.

‘If you believe in the abattoir then you would support Auschwitz. There’s no difference. People who would disagree with this statement have probably never been inside an abattoir.’

And I agree with him, killing animals for our palatal pleasure is morally wrong, we have evolved eating meat but we live in a modern society where our survival do not depend on animal proteins anymore, we have other resources! But most people don’t see it this way and these very sensible comparisons – Auschwitz is a big one which has too much baggage for most people – are doing more harm than good on a meat eater’s point of view. People regard these comparisons as very disrespectful insults toward the Holocaust victims or child abuse victims.

However, no one can stop Morrissey, and Morrissey is asking for a lot:

‘I would like every television commercial that promotes ‘flesh-food’ to be followed by a commercial showing how the living pig and the living cow become the supermarket commodity, step by step. I would like the Queen of England to be asked why she wears an electrocuted bear-cub on her head. I would like to ask all so-called celebrity chefs why they believe that animals should have no right to live. If Jamie ‘Orrible is so certain that flesh-food is tasty then why doesn’t he stick one of his children in a microwave? It would taste the same as cooked lamb. The singer Cilla Black recently appeared on television telling us how she was preparing leg of lamb for dinner, and since a lamb is a baby, I wondered what kind of mind Cilla Black could possibly have that would convince her that eating a baby is OK.’

Yeah, at the end, it’s all about empathy and how much we are able to extend this feeling to animals, how much we are able to feel part of nature. We consider ourselves so superior to animals and this is so wrong. But I should defend Morrissey a bit, he is so passionate about the subject he should calm down a bit at the risk to pass for a freak, but talking about animal suffering has always been controversial. After all, philosopher Peter Singer (author of ‘Animal Liberation’) has said similar things, things like ‘To protest about bullfighting in Spain, the eating of dogs in South Korea, or the slaughter of baby seals in Canada, while continuing to eat eggs from hens who have spent their lives crammed into cages, or veal from calves who have been deprived of their mothers, their proper diet, and the freedom to lie down with their legs extended, is like denouncing apartheid in South Africa while asking your neighbors not to sell their houses to blacks.’ so Morrissey is in good company.
