Letter from Chris Clayton - 27 Apr 2008
I have just discovered your interesting website. I am
the founder and manager of the Humanist Vegetarian Group, a Special
Interest Group of the British Humanist Association. As a (secular)
Humanist I am not a supporter of your or anyone else's religion. Yet as
a committed vegetarian, mainly on ethical grounds, I wonder: to what
extent are we opponents or allies? I would be interested in your

Thank you very much for writing and for introducing
There should never be any conditions where
compassionate, ethical vegetarians/vegans find themselves as being
opponents of each other. They should naturally be allies.
It is also a very interesting factor of our ministry,
for if people lack empathy for any living being, by definition they have
sociopathic tendencies, and may even be a sociopaths. The problem is
that such hardness of heart and lack of empathy is at odds with the
definition and meaning of being a Christian, every church seems to be
full of these people.
So, we appear to have a whole lot more in common than
we have differences.
In the Love of the Lord,
Frank and Mary
If we REALLY want God to bless America and the earth, GO VEGAN!
