A contest for meat eaters

The moral majority?

By
April 6, 2012

In case you didn’t get enough of HuffPo’s debate over the ethics of meat-eating, the discussion continues at the New York Times.

The Ethicist points out that vegetarians have written volumes about how eating meat is morally wrong — but few meat-eaters have successfully argued how it isn’t. So the Times is asking omnivores to step up and defend their food choices in 600 words or less. The essay with the strongest argument for why eating animals is ethical — as judged by the likes of Peter Singer, Mark Bittman, and Michael Pollan, among others — gets published.

The deadline is April 8 — so put down the steak knife and start typing.
