Using Religion to Support Factory Farming

Agriculture professor Wes Jamison said recently at the Illinois Commodity Conference in Bloomington, IL that "Livestock producers need to remind consumers of their divine right to eat meat" ... "Your job is to keep consumers do what they're doing: Eating meat." His argument is that animal rights advocates have been using religion to convince people to stop supporting the factory farming industry. He refers to many successful campaigns that have used the platform of compassion and mercy from a religious point of view in order to help pass legislation that requires a better treatment of farmed animals.

It is outrageous that professor Jamison encourages meat producers to defend their atrocious treatment of God's animals on the basis of a "divine right", and it is obvious that he has profit in mind and not the divine right of farmed animals to be recipients of our compassion and mercy. Many times in history religion has been used to support incredible acts of cruelty, so let’s hope that factory farming is not another one.
