Take Heart!
From Christian Vegetarian Association (CVA)

A glimpse of hope

The Pew Charitable Trusts is funding a group, National Commission on Industrial Farm Animal Production, which will spend the next two years studying large-scale animal farming in the United States. This group is made up of former government officials, ranchers, university experts and authors. Their findings and recommendations could have significant impact on issues such as animal welfare, environmental impact and the and the use of hormones in animal production. As expected, there is at least one organization that worries that this study might increase the credibility of groups such as People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). David Martosko, director of research at the nonprofit Center for Consumer Freedom, believes that this commission is "tainted by vegetarian bias."

The hope of animal rights advocates is that this commission uncovers the truth about the cruelty and suffering involved in raising animals for food. By raising awareness, the public might be more prone to show compassion for the creatures that endure unimaginable pain, stress, fear and confinement. Hopefully, Christians, who are called to be good stewards of all of Godís creation, extend their compassion to their fellow beings.
