Quote of the Day: Sarah Palin

"If God had not intended for us to eat animals, how come He made them out of meat?”
That, according to a number of sources, including the Los Angeles Times and The Atlantic Monthly, is the wisdom of "rogue" ex-governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin.

She apparently posed the question in her new book, "Going Rogue: An American Life".

I think I have the answer to Ms. Palin's question. I've been thinking about this for some time, and I really think I've got it: God obviously intended for us to eat animals, which are made of meat, because he made vegetables out of vegetation. I mean, it's like how people aren't made of meat. Because we don't eat people, right?

Take that, haters.

I used an argument similar to yours at a dinner party a few years back...

I found myself defending a friend, also in attendance, who happened to be a vegetarian. During the grilling that ensued, the aggressive ‘gentleman’ demanded to know whether or not it was morally wrong to eat an animal if it had died of natural causes. I replied that it was not morally wrong—no more so than it would be to eat him if he died of natural causes—though it might leave a bad taste in the mouth.

Needless to say, we never became friends.
