 I agree with all the comments and quotes made in this article, but I do not see the relationship that being cruel to an animal and enjoying it has with never eating a living thing.

I have my own issues with religion but the "cycle of life", the "food chain" and " survival of the fittest" are the realities of this world.  

I am not implying that cruelty towards animals shouldn't be a sign of a psychological problem or maybe even a future criminal.  I just don't see how you can link this with being a vegetarian.  God may not have put some creatures here to be eaten, but no one truly knows this.  I see nothing wrong with a lion going after a buffalo, so in turn I see nothing wrong with a human going after the lion.  

I don't understand still, how one homosapien could hunt and kill another homosapien, humans are among very few species that go to war with and kill there own kind. This is the problem I believe we face and need to concentrate on. I know this is in no relation to the question being asked on the readers comments page but I had to share my ideas about this in some way.
