This article really pissed me off the way the guy came across as such an ass.

Yeah, what an a-hole. Maybe someone will be there sometime to make a joke out of something he considers to be morally repugnant.

I know they eat disgusting things in Japan,but why did he automatically go on the defensive? Is he really a closet veggie or something? Stupid man.

I think it is good that he realizes in a very foggy way that he is morally schizophrenic. I think many omnis know this deep down. I did when I ate meat. I used to wonder sometimes, why do I treat my dog so well and eat pig? I just rationalized that everyone did, thus a-okay.

Btw, most of that rationalization is also known as social conditioning. Social conditioning and desire can make one ignore some pretty obvious inconsistencies in one's behavior and thought. Amazing and very unfortunate power.
