Until this petition is rewritten in a fashion that resembles an intelligent proposal, I will not be signing. No one could take that petition seriously.

Agreed.







Also, since when is it a vegetarian requirement to eat only free-range, organic eggs and dairy? Sure, most of us prefer it, but it is definitely not necessary.

I wouldn't sign anything that uses 'secular' as a derogatory term, which is what I *think* is occurring there.

yeah, this is not a cool petition. it rambles and attacks and there are big chunks of caps and hysterical talk of crap in food makes us look like nut jobs and its just well... in need of a re-write.



work out exactly what you want to say, and maybe we can help you do it concisely, maturely, clearly and articulately, if you want.

I agree with what everyone else had said so far. That petition is written poorly.



There are plenty of people that would happily help it be rewritten. I am aure there will be a lot more responses if it is rewritten.

As a 19 year vegetarian, I can't sign this petition. The use of the word "secular" is strange as the definition is: not spiritual, not religious and not living in a monestary. How does this apply to meat producers or meat eaters?
