Turkey Bowling - An Ancient Carnist Tradition

>>  Monday, November 19, 2012

The video below shows a new past-time for the American meat-eating public to pursue - "bowling" with murdered and butchered turkey bodies...

This very depraved leisure activity is apparently sought out by many: 
Church youth groups
Walmart employees
Charity benefits for the Salvation Army
Teens in a Church
As family traditions
Even X-presidents 

In light of how very beautiful these birds are - And how sacred their lives are to them - Events such as these become even more obscene and vile.

While millions of gentle, innocent creatures endure a very short painful life of extreme deprivation with no sun, no fresh air, no space, no hope of satisfying the very basic desires that are natural to them --- There are fools somewhere having laughs and jokes "bowling" with the butchered bodies of their counterparts.

And while they are gathered in the most brutal ways to be turned into preserved carcasses some dork-neanderthal is making comedy with a corpse.

And as these sentient beings face their last horrifying moments at machines meant to carve their lives away, some fool-idiot is at play with another body that has been murdered days before...

That's "turkey bowling". And these are the faces of just some of the victims:

Somebody NOT Something!

This post is my effort to shame those who would use an other's body in such a way... To remind bird (cow, chicken, pig, goat, rabbit, cat, dog, monkey and donkey) eaters what your whole bloody ritual of flesh eating can eventually manifests its self as. You see, this is inevitable when you turn life into a commodity... 

No carnist can complain or judge how a nonhuman's body is used. Once it's bought and paid for - Anything goes. Even if your banquet table is set with the finest china and the most elegant glassware Congratulations! You've condoned turkey bowling!
The message is clear - We don't need to and shouldn't sacrifice these birds or any other being for our body's desires - Whether for consumption or entertainment. Choosing a vegan life is the only ethical course one can make.

If we could just be as great as we can be lousy...wow...wouldn't we be something.

I second your shaming. Thank you for speaking out.

Bea, you might want to listen closely to the "Christian" rap music in the "Teens" video and relabel it "Teens in a Church"! Because that's just where they are: in a holy sanctuary, defiling their Creator's name with their pitiless hearts and hands. Defiling it more than any curse words could ever do.

The entire subject matter is . . . well, I second VE's comment.

Hi veganelder - It's always one of my greatest disappointments about us... That we don't and won't live up to what standards I know we're capable of - We'd truly be something super special if we did... Instead? We turkey bowl. :/

Thanks for your visit and agreement that the worst of us can be a pitiful sorry lot. It makes me ever grateful for knowing the few who are not - <3

Hi Olivia - I never thought to listen to the lyrics... Not quite my taste in "music" to begin with but I see what you mean about "Teens in a Church" - They really are in a place that their own teachings would value as "holy" and "sacred". Makes the nonsense even more despicable.

I apologize that posts such as these bring an element of unrest to otherwise gentle spirits such as yours... Thanks for enduring them as you do - And for your keen observations. "Teens in a Church" it sadly is.

Ugh, and here I thought I had heard of just about everything when it comes to animal abuse. Sigh.

It is shameful isn't it? But this almost seems like it's human-animal intelligence abuse - Doesn't it? Maybe for some of us - our lobotomized brains would make better bowling balls? LOL!

Thanks for the visit though - Hope this knowledge makes you that much more glad not to be a member of their carnists habits anymore. ;)
