(And don't bother giving me yap about all life living at the expense of other life and nature red in tooth and claw and blar blar blar: yes, we need to eat. But there are humane ways to exist and then there are evil ways to exist. What's happening in the Tyson chicken factory is evil. Buddhism talks about Right Living. If you don't engage in Right Living, you can't stay on the Eight-Fold path.
For you Christians out there, what I'm meaning by this is, what you do unto the least of these? You're doing to God.
And of course Jews, well, it's our job to act right. We're here to mend the world. We've got a whole slew of rules about slaughtering animals, including chickens, humanely. Why? Because everything, including chickens, is part of God's world, and ought to be treated like part of God' world. That's why.)
