Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!
Being Vegan… Being Angry

Let's be honest, say the authors of this article, anger is a normal emotion when we come to the realization that billions of animals are being tortured for taste and profit, while we feel somewhat powerless to stop this madness. Anger is a primal emotion that when it's channeled in an effective way may work on our behalf. Of course it doesn't help to lash out at people when they continue to eat animals even though they might be aware of the atrocities inflicted on these animals. However, Mariann Sullivan & Jasmin Singer who are, respectively, the Program Director and Executive Director of Our Hen House http://www.ourhenhouse.org/ give great advice about dealing with anger in order to be as effective as possible in educating people about the benefits of a plant-based diet.

I think we can all learn something from this great article because at one time or another we’ve felt the anger associated with knowing/learning about the inherent cruelty of animal agriculture and the devastating effects it has on God’s Creation. Especially, the anger associated with the lack of empathy that surrounds us (seemingly in spite of our efforts), might be the one hardest to deal with. Nonetheless, it’s important to keep in mind that progress is being made and that our lifestyle has great influence on others.
