Sorry, Charlie. But just as a practical matter, if non-Jews buy kosher meat because they think it's superior from an ethical and quality standpoint, it will be carried by more stores and be easier to get in out-of the-Jewish-way burgs like mine.

In point of fact, it won't hurt Kashrut to also appeal to people who are making ethical decisions as well as Halachic ones. It will help. Because yes, right now I have to choose between chicken that's raised locally according to my environmental and humanistic beliefs and chicken that's got a Heksher. Wouldn't you like to have lot's more people buying kosher?
