Rape, By Any Other Name, Is Still Rape! – 28 April 2009

“Today’s turkeys are unable to copulate on their own, thanks to selectively bred, freakishly huge breasts in the “toms.” The industry must use artificial insemination. The job is nearly as dehumanizing for the workers – who must work rapidly for long hours and low wages – as it is deplorable for the tortured breeder birds, who are essentially raped every week for 12 to 16 months until they are sent to slaughter.”
– From “101 Reasons Why I’m a Vegetarian” by Pamela Rice www.vivavegie.org/itoc 

When you stop to think that people serve turkeys as holiday centerpieces (for “Thanksgiving,” no less!) as well as everyday fare, and actually thank the Creator for these horribly tortured animals, you begin to realize how evil this world really is.

"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.
