Veda Stram - Camano Island, Washington, USA
Why would an atheist work for a Christian animal rights site?
The answer is simple: Animals have no religion and need all humans to work on their behalf, regardless of religious beliefs.
I am certain that in order to have a world that benefits all life on our planet, veganism is THE answer: a critical mass of humans must act as if every single thing they do has consequences for every other living being, everywhere in the world.
Since most people in the U.S. claim to be Christian, I am honored to work for a Christian vegan/animal rights site founded by a retired church pastor who believes that if people believe in God, they need to be asking themselves, “Is this how God would want you to treat His creation?”
All-Creatures.org is a huge, archival vegan/animal rights site that provides articles, events, alerts, images, videos, stories, recipes, investigations, poetry (and more) for nonbelievers and believers to be inspired and educated to make huge differences for animals.
Whatever your religious beliefs or your anti-religion stance, please make use of this huge, archival vegan/animal rights website...ALL-CREATURES.ORG.
Share the site with your friends, family and coworkers who are believers and have not yet included ALL animals in their religious commitments!
