I like watching shows like MasterChef on Fox. Tonight there is an episode where they are preparing live crab. There is one contestant (Sheetal) that appears to be Indian and is appalled by the idea of having to kill the live crab.
She cries, says it's against everything she has been taught in her home and religion, etc. She said she has been raised in a vegetarian home and has been taught that all living animals have a soul and that she has never personally killed any animals.
She wrestles with her moral conscious as she decides if she should go against who she is and kill the crab or not. What does she do?
She kills the crab. She apologizes to it and then goes on to say that she is proud of herself for having gotten through it.
Makes me sad that this person went against her morals and everything she has been taught, all in the name of greed and a contest. I would have loved to see her stand up for her beliefs.
In the end, the judges like her crab curry dish and one actually says that the crab is probably "happy" to give its life and be in that dish. Are you kidding me?
Stand for something or you will fall for anything.
