'80s Pop Star Rants: 'I See No Difference Between Eating Animals and Pedophilia'

The gay lobby goes into a rage whenever homosexuality and pedophilia are put side by side.

Morrissey, a British pop star of the Eighties with the Smiths, may be gay (he says he's "humasexual," implying he's bisexual). But he'd rather accuse everyone of eating meat of being just like a pedophile. MusicFeeds.com reported it came during  during a recent Q&A on Morrissey fan site called True To You:

“I see no difference between eating animals and pedophilia. They are both rape, violence, murder,” declared the singer when asked “What is it that prompted you to stop eating meat?” The Meat Is Murder-singer continued, saying, “If I’m introduced to anyone who eats beings, I walk away.”

“Imagine, for example, if you were in a nightclub and someone said to you 'Hello, I enjoy bloodshed, throat-slitting and the destruction of life,' well, I doubt if you’d want to exchange phone numbers,” he concluded, continuing his long-standing and vocal criticism of those dastardly flesh-eaters....

“I would like the Queen of England to be asked why she wears an electrocuted bear-cub on her head. I would like to ask all so-called celebrity chefs why they believe that animals should have no right to live...."

“If Jamie ‘Orrible [Oliver] is so certain that flesh-food is tasty then why doesn’t he stick one of his children in a microwave? It would taste the same as cooked lamb.”

This might underline why Morrissey's first solo album was titled "Viva Hate." Morrissey really is an intolerant hater of meat-eaters. In 2009, he abandoned a stage at the Coachella Festival in California because of the smell of cooking meat, stating "I can smell burning flesh and I hope to God it's human."

At a 2011 concert in Warsaw, Poland. Morrissey ranted that the Anders Breivik mass murder in Norway was nothing compared to fast-food chains: "We all live in a murderous world, as the events in Norway have shown, with 97 [sic] dead. Though that is nothing compared to what happens in McDonald's and Kentucky Fried Shit every day."
