Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!

And what about cruelty to animals?

In an article published on August 1 (Ottawa Sun) we learned that residents of the small town of Pendleton, Canada, are putting up a fight against what it seems the imminent construction of a mega sow factory farm.

The residents of Pendleton raise the issue of odors and contamination that this 3000-sow factory farm will certainly produce. However, what should be distressing for us, Christians animal advocates and the population of Pendleton, is the issue of animal cruelty involved in raising animals for food, especially in factory farms.

We know that in those kind of facilities sows live a miserable life as they suffer abuse, pain and confinement that are unimaginable for most of us. Their God-given rights are ignored and their plight goes unheard.
