I guess what I'm saying is yes I agree with the principal that there are very more important atrocities going on every minute on this planet but we are individuals who do not have similar priorities. You can't clumb Paul and Heather into the whole debate against any animal killing. They have clearly stated recently that they agree people eat meat. Paul's preference is not to. That does not mean you can automatically categorize him to the equality of say, PETA on every issue they have.
I cannot see Paul ever protesting cattle or poultry farms etc, unless they are being treated poorly. Like the letter he wrote to KFC. He wasn't and isn't trying to close them down as some extremists are.
I refer to:

His view is simple, just because your going to kill them for food, doesn't mean they should not be treated humanely until that time. Paul is quoted saying "If KFC paid for dogs or cats to be treated the way these unfortunate chickens are treated, they could be charged with cruelty to animals"
Paul says in a letter to McDonalds, If McDonald’s corporate policy, that “humane treatment of animals is an integral part of a world class supplier system,” is to have meaning, then the corporation must adopt international farmed animal welfare standards
So he is not grouped with those who want to close down all slaughter houses. That's the point I'm trying to make.
