"Those who attempt to conquer hatred by hatred are like warriors who take weapons to overcome others who bear arms. This does not end hatred, but gives it room to grow. But, ancient wisdom has advocated a different timeless strategy to overcome hatred. This eternal wisdom is to meet hatred with non-hatred. The method of trying to conquer hatred through hatred never succeeds in overcoming hatred. But, the method of overcoming hatred through non-hatred is eternally effective. That is why that method is described as eternal wisdom."

As someone who believes that non-human animals have the exact same right to life as a human being, listening to someone talk about hunting and killing an innocent animal for sport brings forth the same emotional reaction as if you were bragging about shooting and killing innocent people for sport.
Please reconsider this.
