"You are diseased in understanding and religion.
Come to me, that you may hear something of sound truth.
Do not unjustly eat fish the water has given up,
And do not desire as food the flesh of slaughtered animals,
Or the white milk of [animal] mothers who intended its pure draught
for their young, not [for] noble ladies [of human society].
And do not grieve the unsuspecting birds by taking their eggs;
for injustice is the worst of crimes.
And spare the honey which the bees get industriously
from the flowers of fragrant plants;
For they did not store it that it might belong to others,
Nor did they gather it for bounty and gifts.
I washed my hands of all this; and wish that I
Perceived my way before my hair went gray!

This poem is remarkable because it was written almost one thousand years ago in a heavily orthodox Muslim region of Syria, by an Arab poet-philosopher, Abū’l ‘Alā al-Ma‘arrī (973-1057), who was unable to see, walk or even crawl. Though Ma‘arrī’s eyesight had been destroyed by smallpox when he was only four, this progressive poet-sage obviously saw much more clearly than anyone west of China and India that speciesism is wrong, and he courageously dared to speak up about the matter."

"...we need to unequivocally promote veganism and a future where animals are never used, no matter the intended purpose or it’s given value, because it’s all unnecessary. we need to unequivocally promote veganism and a future where animals are never used, no matter the intended purpose or it’s given value, because it’s all unnecessary."

needed to share this again (come on Tim Minchin, another 'updated' song is surely needed!!!) george pell, treasurer of the vatican for the past 3 years, couldn't come home last year as a witness in catholic 'child sexual abuse' cases - committed decades ago (those discovered so far) due to 'ill health', which is when this song was written... well, finally he has been charged (long overdue) here in australia and it appears the vatican is making him come home to 'clear himself'... finally george, justice might be served to the victims of your paedophile priesthood... we can't wait for you to come home george - 'the time is nigh''......
