“Only a Coward Stands by While Others Harm Those Who Cannot Defend Themselves”


Words posted by a Facebook friend, Carol Williams from her friend Ryan Phillips:

“Please don’t let people murdering animals and feeling guilty about it silence you by calling you preachy, high and mighty or by telling you that you are getting on your moral soap box.

These are just tactics used by those who know we are spreading the truth and don’t like where the truth leads or the guilt it makes them feel.

There is no way of calling people out for harming animals that is too aggressive, too preachy or too anything.

People are paying for things to happen to animals that are beyond belief. They do not deserve the privilege of doing so without having it detailed to them exactly what they are causing.

If you don’t want to hear how a farmer rapes a cow, kills a calf and then abuses the mother until she is used up and then killed for hamburger, don’t buy dairy.

If you don’t want to know the torment and abuse dealt out to chickens, pigs and cows used for meat, then don’t buy it.

But if you buy it and you think you are owed the favor of us keeping to ourselves what you are paying for or that somehow we are stepping out of place or preachy to share what we know, think again.

Only a coward stands by while others harm those that cannot defend themselves. And we will not be cowards”.

  1. Reblogged this on iliketowritewhatithink and commented:
    The words are Ryan’s. I simply passed them on. Now they have been blogged, and I am re-blogging.

    I do not really consider myself a brave person, but armed with the burning desire to see the end of animal harming and slaughter I am able to do and say things that once I would have thought I never could. When I was a child I was timid and shy. Now, although I do not welcome being in situations where I am not liked or am accused of being ‘pushy’ or ‘preachy’ or in some way forcing my views upon somebody, I nevertheless will carry on.

    I know right from wrong and I know that bad things happen because good people stand by and do nothing. The number of really evil people in this world is small, but the number of apathetic people who enable evil to triumph is huge.

  2. I could not have said it better–or related to your words better, cushpigsmum. It is exactly how I feel. I don’t consider myself brave or a leader, but there are things that are simply unacceptable–and the torture and killing of animals is unnecessary and just plain evil. I agree that truly evil people are not in great numbers, but an enormous amount of suffering continues due to apathetic ones–of which there are many, as you said. They don’t think of themselves as apathetic perhaps, but our job is to wake up their innate compassion. It’s not easy work and how I wish we didn’t have to walk this path! But of course, if not us, then who will speak for those who can’t speak for themselves? XXXOOO
