It was not too long ago that I would have happily challenged you to (and probably beaten you at) ANY cooking/eating competition. Wings, chili, burgers, ribs... You may not realize that cruelty to animals affects you in subtle and profound ways. It hurts you and it obviously hurts the animals, but it deflects you from your true morality...and as a consequence you walk more heavily in this world.
Those wings you munch on, the ribs you suck dry, were part of innocent beings that suffered immensely. They were the arms of a helpless chicken, the tender sides of a gentle cow. Just think about that. They did not want to die. (Given their tortured existence, they probably did not want to live either. Take 15 seconds to imagine living under their conditions.)
I challenge you to watch "Earthlings". It will take more than a little courage. It is not for the faint of heart. But if you insist on eating meat, you should at least know how the meat you eat gets from there to here.
