Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!

This Week's Video

A few weeks ago, we shared with out readers the shocking undercover Mercy For Animals' video depicting the most egregious cruelty acts on calves at E6 Cattle Co. (a dairy farm) in Hart, Texas. Mercy for Animals released a second video, this time one of hope and healing, involving the rescue of 4 calves from E6 and their transport to their new home at “The Gentle Barn”, in Santa Clarita, California, where abused and troubled kids interact with rescued farm animals.

To watch this video please visit Meet the Survivors: MFA Rescues Calves from Texas Factory Farm and share with friends and family!

Paul Hansen, one of our sustaining members, shared some comments with us that I think are very appropriate in this case: "Ironically, The Gentle Barn, located in Santa Clarita, California, is the sort of place where mission-minded Christian churches might want to send abused kids to interact with rescued farm animals, whose story of abuse echoes that of the kids and helps therapeutically to “heal” the kids. Yet, those same churches don't give a second thought to their support of industries (like dairy) that routinely abuse such animals, separate calves from their mothers prematurely and sell them for veal. This is not just an irony, but a moral-cultural disconnect." .

Your question and comments are welcome
