Violence in God’s Name

Bruce Friedrich, Vice President of Policy and Government Affairs for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), writes about the consistent endorsing of violence by Christians at the time of eating. While the Bible clearly states that cruelty to animals is wrong, most Christians don't think twice and continue to support the meat, dairy and egg industries, which undeniably cause unimaginable and unnecessary pain, suffering and early death to God's animals. Friedrich points out that Pope Benedict XVI "boldly and rightly condemns violence that is carried out in God's name."

The Bible, for Christians, is a moral compass that helps us guide our choices and decisions. It also clearly states that God's animals were created as companions for us and that we have sacred stewardship over them. This stewardship conveys care and respect, two traits that the factory farming industry obviously lacks. Our actions should be consistent with our beliefs; therefore, adopting a plant-based diet should be our logical choice as followers of Jesus Christ.
