Pig Hatred Is Inhuman

'No other group of living things has been so often discussed and so little understood, and disagreement about this is implacable. The taboo against pigs in the Middle East is just as vehemently opposed by the reverence in which pigs are held in most of the Pacific where they have become symbols of political and social power. Anyone there who refuses to eat pork is regarded as inhuman.'
- from 'The Whole Hog : Exploring the Extraordinary Potential of Pigs' by Lyall Watson [Profile Books, 2004]

I deleted a comment because it was idiotic. I don't usually do this, but will do so when a comment is particularly irrelevant and idiotic.
