Parsha Vayikra – Animal sacrifice… gross!
For the past 10 or so years, I’ve been a quasi vegetarian. My reasons for not eating so much meat are the same as the “quasi” part of my quasi vegetarianism. I didn’t stop eating meat, because of health or moral reasons. I did so, because meat, or the idea that meat comes for an animal grosses me out.
On the surface, slaughtering animals as offerings seems not so nice and barbaric at best.
