On 6 April you published a letter from a Mr. Comerford, who described Joe Perl's "advocacy" of all things sausage (30 March) as "literally a malignant propaganda campaign glorifying animal genocide [and] agricultural pollution."

I have a question for you, Mr. Comerford: If God had not meant for us to eat animals, then why did he make them out of meat?
