Interview with Melanie Joy, Author of “Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows”

Social psychologist Melanie Joy, Ph.D, Ed.M, author of the book "Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows", talks in this interview about carnism, "the invisible belief system that conditions people to eat certain animals." She argues that most people do not want to intentionally cause suffering to animals; however, but in the case of their diet people and society justify eating animals by telling themselves that eating animals is normal, natural, and necessary.

Christians are called to be compassionate and merciful. Choosing a diet that involves eating God’s animals is neither.
