Eggs (Revisited) – 12 December 2007

Last month I wrote about the horrors of routine debeaking (beak trimming) of egg-laying hens in the modern poultry industry:

I wonder how many people realize (or care) that there are NO regulations requiring that egg carton labels reveal under what conditions those eggs were produced ( “eggs from caged hens,” for example). This results not only in a lack of disclosure on carton labels, but also the deliberate misleading of consumers with images of “happy” chickens, words like “animal-friendly,” etc. (Have you noticed how some of the worst abusers of farmed animals use the word “happy” in their ads?)

The animal exploiting industries take advantage of the consumers’ desire to believe in the “Ole MacDonald’s Farm” mythology – keeping them ignorant of the horrific conditions under which these imprisoned, abused animals are kept.

"Joyful Curmudgeon"
An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.
