Animals as Food
Comments by Frank and Mary Hoffman - 6 Jan 2006

Dear Holly:

Over 95% of all animal products found in our markets come from factory farms like the ones depicted on our web site, and some of the conditions are worse than we show. This percentage is probably even higher with chicken and egg producers.

These people do the horrible things they do, because it is less expensive to produce the flesh and by-products. Adding more space would only raise the price.

The only way to stop the horrible suffering is to take the money out of the producers pockets by not buying their products. Every time someone buys some of their products, they are saying, "Torture more animals".

We find it interesting that you close you letter with Romans 8:28, for it really applies to this situation.  Yes, all things do work together for good, when we love God and do the things we been called to do. The purpose for which we are called, is to be the children of God who will free creation from its present corruption and suffering (Romans 8:18-23).  There is no greater suffering than that taking place on factory farms.

In the Love of the Lord,

Frank and Mary
