The reason many are not posting is because slaughter is not a PC subject.
Being against banning it brings those claiming the high ground out and that call others names, directly or indirectly and that is hard not to respond in kind to.
Being against a ban on slaughter, by the way, is not always being for it.
It is understanding what all is behind this push for a ban.
It is a principle with some that we should not ban slaughter just because some animal rights extremists, as part of furthering their agendas, demand we do so.
