Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!
Faith and Ethics

Michael Gilmour, Professor of English and biblical literature at Providence University College in Manitoba, writes about the connection between his Christian Faith and the choice he made to adopt a vegetarian diet. While he confesses that it wasn't theology what prompted him to go vegetarian, but instead the ethical implications surrounding it, he realizes that his diet avoids treating God's farmed animals cruelly or frivolously.

The Bible, Gilmour says, does not mandate a vegetarian diet but it does call us to be compassionate, merciful and kind. Please visit Christian Ethical Vegetarianism: A Modest Proposal:

Our Christian faith and ethics should go hand in hand. Animal agriculture is an industry that profits from the pain, fear and death of God's farmed animals. Each one of us, by adopting a plant-based diet, is helping reduce the abuse and death of thousands of animals, the devastation of the environment and the rate of chronic diseases.
