Gary Yourofsky’s Vegan Story in 60 seconds
I was not a vegetarian at this time.
No, I was not vegan. I was not animal rights.
But I was learning.
And there were always 6 or 7 pig trucks on the road, waiting to be called in.
And I would walk up and down that street, and I’d stand face to face with those pigs.
And I would look at them and they looked back at me and it was like they were saying to me:
“why are you doing this?”
And you know what?
I never had an answer.
I said: “I don’t know why we do this to you.”
And I later found out that there was a bishop from Britain, William Inge, who in an 18th century sermon once said that if animals ever formed an organized religion, the devil would be depicted in human form.
I can’t argue with that either.
We must be the devil to animals.
