Finding Jesus in Seitan
As a seitan worshipper, I got a kick out of a recent letter that found its way to PETA’s inbox: A PETA supporter (who wishes to remain anonymous) was preparing to barbeque some seitan—also known as “wheat meat”—when an image of Jesus Christ on the cross appeared in the godly gluten. Here’s the photo he/she sent us:
It makes me wonder, WWJD if He knew that billions of animals live miserable lives and die violent, bloody deaths to sate our addiction to the taste of their flesh? Considering that His message is one of love, kindness, and mercy for all of God’s creatures, I think that Jesus would say to hell with meat.
Right now, I’m going to practice the compassion that Jesus preached and grab some vegan eats …
OMG, there’s an image of SpongeBob SquarePants in my block of tofu!
