1. While Leafleting, Should We Argue with People?
John Camp writes: I see our role as activists as the same -- winning the
game is more important than silly arguments with others. To paraphrase
Dale Carnegie, the best way to win an argument is by avoiding it. My
role when leafleting is not only as a distributor of literature, but as
a friendly, mainstream example of an animal rights activist. We're going
to win people over not by likening them to Nazis or sadists, but by
seeing the best in them and allowing them the chance to seriously
consider the animals' plight.
2. CVA Activism
Bruce, tabling for the CVA at the Boston Vegetarian Food Festival
writes: It went extremely well. I set up my Mac laptop to play the
"Honoring God's Creation" DVD all day. Right before the show opened,
Linda and her husband Neil showed up. Having them there with me was
great, as they were wonderful, talkative, and extremely helpful.
We gave away almost all our free literature, and everyone who stopped
by was positive. About 20 people signed up for the e-newsletter.
On the whole, in felt good to be there to (in my words) help more
Christians become vegetarians and to help more vegetarians become
Christians, and to encourage those who already are both :)
