***NOTE: I AM NO LONGER AFFILIATED WITH OR SUPPORT TAVS
This is the quote from Gary Francione I mentioned:
"To believe in a principle of justice and promote that principle clearly is not be "angry." That term is simply a way of putting the principle down by not focusing on the substance and, instead, focusing on the person articulating the principle.
People always "like" people who don't challenge them but in the world in which you and I live, challenging others is what morality *requires*. It's not optional!"
(In response to a comment on the Gary L. Francione: The Abolitionist Approach to Animal Rights page in which the commentator said: "I was overwhelmed by all the "angry vegan" personal attacks this week and wanted to be seen as 'nicer' by encouraging this, which did not prove to be effective and went against my conscience anyway.")
Original thread where above comment happened: https://www.facebook.com/abolitionistapproach/posts/734694363216987?comment_id=7664908&offset=0&total_comments=26
Original post on the thread, by the way, was:
"*All* animal products involve suffering and death. All of them. We should be crystal clear that the *only* rational response to recognizing the moral status of nonhumans is to go vegan. If animals matter morally, then *any* exploitation--however supposedly "humane"--is immoral. To say that being "compassionate" requires that we promote something other than veganism is to say that we are morally obligated to promote immorality. That makes no sense, If you agree that animals matter, veganism--and only veganism--is what makes sense."
