TIME.com Coverage About the MFA Pork Producer Expose

TIME.com offers the reader a clear image of what the factory farming industry is all about, more specifically, the pork industry. The newly released undercover video by Mercy for Animals has spiked much controversy due to its graphic nature. The Iowa farm in question rests its defense on the unfortunate fact that the barbaric procedures done on pigs (castration and tail docking without anesthesia, hyper-confinement of sows, painful uterine prolapses, etc.) are just "standard procedure" in the pork industry. However, due to consumers' reaction to the video, already Safeway and Kroger have announced that they will stop doing business with the company.

I think the images in the video say it all. What we are doing to God’s farmed animals is indefensible from an ethical and spiritual perspective. Simply put, would Jesus approve of this egregious treatment of our fellow creatures?
