I agree. The animal is also slaughtered, but under Rabbinical law
which is more humane. That's why my husband gets kosher franks.

The whole eating meat thing, to me, is barbaric. If I am wrong in

I also agree it's all barbaric which is why I don't eat animals.
Yes I have already gathered that such is your opinion. It's your statements
that are either illogical or based on misinformation or poor comprehension
skills or are simply incorrect which that are keeping me posting on this

That is not what you wrote at all. You wrote that it is more humane to
slaughter an animal under Rabbinical law.
But you buy them for your husband so long as you think the slaughter is
"more humane". Dead is dead and the more humane way to kill an animal is to
stun it before allowing it to bleed out.
the knife used to cut the throat of the animal must be sharp enough it doesnt
pain. also, the animal is kept calm. it is allowed to bleed out which renders
unconscious before it dies. very calm way of dying. but not "quick"
What I saw once in a documentary was a solenoid driven plunger that went
into the back of the beast's skull, probably in a spot analogous to the one
snipers love to hit when they target people. The cow dropped instantly.

What I have seen, and done, in real life is a .22 LR in the center of
the X formed between the ears and eyes. The cow dropped instantly.
Real life trumps a documentary every time.

Yes, but you did it. I am a firm believer in doing for oneself. I get
no pleasure from the killing, but if I am going to consume meat, I
should be able to kill. I don't do much of it now, but I can and am
prepared to do so again.
We eat seeds and grains and vegetables that we raise and then either
rip the fruit from the living plant and devour their living flesh or
eat seeds and grains, along with the life that resides in them.
Life begets life. Those who think that they abstain from killing or
participating in killing by being vegan, or vegetarian, or whatever,
are fooling themselves.
"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion,
butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance
accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders,
give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new
problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight
efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects."
