“It’s not food, it’s violence!” That’s what several unhinged, petulant, preachy animal rights activists chanted at the end of their ridiculous harassment attack on a couple of fellas just fishing on a nice day. It’s all caught on video because these “activists” recorded it, no doubt thinking they’d be big heroes for their “stand” for fish rights. Unfortunately for them, the video only illustrates how illogical and psychologically unstable they appear to be. As they lecture on and on about how fish are just exactly like human children (seriously?) and can process and feel just like a person, the hapless victims of their attack, the two fishermen, to their great credit, continue calmly fishing and they don’t punch them. Clearly from the video, most people would probably have punched them.
The activists even try to say that the Bible promotes the idea that we shouldn’t eat meat, that no animals should be consumed. But the problem with using Scripture to support your argument is that you’ve got to know it to use it as evidence. So, here’s some inconvenient Scripture for these rude vegans.
“At dawn Jesus was standing on the beach, but the disciples couldn’t see who he was. He called out, “Fellows, have you caught any fish?” “No,” they replied. Then he said, “Throw out your net on the right-hand side of the boat, and you’ll get some!” So they did, and they couldn’t haul in the net because there were so many fish in it. Then the disciple Jesus loved said to Peter, “It’s the Lord!” When Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put on his tunic (for he had stripped for work), jumped into the water, and headed to shore. The others stayed with the boat and pulled the loaded net to the shore, for they were only about a hundred yards from shore. When they got there, they found breakfast waiting for them—fish cooking over a charcoal fire, and some bread. “Bring some of the fish you’ve just caught,” Jesus said. So Simon Peter went aboard and dragged the net to the shore. There were 153 large fish, and yet the net hadn’t torn. “Now come and have some breakfast!” Jesus said. None of the disciples dared to ask him, “Who are you?” They knew it was the Lord. Then Jesus served them the bread and the fish.”
John 21:4-13 NLT
Jesus, God Himself, cooked and ate fish. If it’s good enough for Jesus, it’s good enough for the rest of us.
