God Does Not Eat Meat

By Arthur Poletti

Mahatma Gandhi once said, “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be measured by the way in which its animals are treated. To my mind, the life of a lamb is no less precious than that of a human being.”

This story presents a case for the importance and absolute necessity of continually attempting to protect and preserve all animal life. Hopefully, the story provides reasonable and believable predictions of a multitude of positive affects that could occur as a result of REMOVING ALL MEATS FROM THE FOOD CHAIN for humans and animals in the United States, and in as many other countries as possible.

Together we will take a journey on a path rarely traveled. During our exploration we will utilize words of wisdom expressed by some of the most famous people in history to help create a story that unleashes a fierce battle between two entirely different societies. Within this format we will theoretically deploy the awesome power of non-violence to wage a war against life’s most formidable insidious adversary.

Cruelty, the abetting loyal servant and evil partner of violence, is the most devastating and most difficult dilemma for human and animal life to contend with, and has proven to be one of the most difficult problems to solve or even control.

Every person should continually inspire their consciousness to inquire and seek their own personal truth about life’s most important issues. Only then can one develop the feeling of real compassion that comes from understanding and wisdom. The decisions you make after reading this story could reveal some of your deepest true feelings, especially concerning the value and importance of every animal’s life.

Mr. Poletti’s inspiration for writing the book – God Does Not Eat Meat – came from his thoughts, as follows:

“I was inspired by my intuitive communications with animals, the earth, and God to write this story. Especially to honor the precious, irreplaceable, and sacred God given life of each and every vulnerable animal that has been or will be killed in a slaughterhouse.

Every vulnerable animal that has or will experience the cruelty and horror of factory farm systems while being raised for slaughter. Every vulnerable animal that has been or will be hunted and killed for sport, and every vulnerable animal that has or will suffer during the gruesome process of laboratory experimentation’s.

While they innocently stand in line in slaughterhouses throughout the world waiting for their lives to be violently destroyed, innocent, frightened, and terrified animals desperately try to communicate with humans. If you listen carefully you can hear them now. They are saying, please let me live, please do not kill me. What did I do wrong that makes you want to kill me?

I have a hidden deep rooted sick feeling every day, that I disguise well, as I consciously and subconsciously think about the huge number of animals that live short horrendous lives before they are brutally killed, which is totally unnecessary.

Hopefully most of the people that read this story will determine there are profoundly obvious and convincing reasons why every vulnerable animal deserves the opportunity to live a full life surrounded by an atmosphere filled with safety, peace, tranquility, and kindness.

How can humans ever expect to stop killing each other if they cannot do something as simple as not eating meat and not killing animals?

I am certain that God did not put animals on earth so they could be tortured, killed, and eaten by humans.”

Everybody exists. It is only the few who live. To live, you should have an IDEAL.

Life is short. The path is long. The pinnacle is very high. The time is very little.
