Eating Filth – 9 May 2008

I wonder how many people who eat animal-derived products would continue to do so if they knew what they were really eating.

Here’s a little eye-opener:

“Up against the powerful meat industry, USDA [United States Department of Agriculture] inspectors are more and more facing hostile and even violent environments. A 2000 survey of 6 percent of the meat inspection force revealed that almost half chose not to report animal feces, vomit, metal shards, and other contaminants, weekly or monthly. A Freedom of Information Act finding revealed in 1998 that seven meat plants were allowed to operate, even after each had received more than a thousand citations.” From “101 Reasons Why I’m a Vegetarian” by Pamela Rice

With political corruption so rampant, the situation is probably worse today.

"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.
