Letter from Sandra Clinton about Christianity and Dominion - 2 Jun 2006

I just wanted to commend you on your amazing website highlighting the horrible treatment of animals at the hands of us civilized humans.  I am not a Christian by faith, although I was raised Catholic and do most wholeheartedly believe in a divine creator and force. I think it is wonderful and extremely important that you are advocating respect for all living creatures as Jesus would have done.  There are too many "Christians" with the "dominion" complex, which was never meant to be taken out of context in the way it is.  Dominion means responsibility and compassion, not cruelty and tyranny over animals to sustain our selfish way of life.
Thank you for presenting an alternative Christian moral position on animals, and not being afraid to present the hard-hitting visual reality of so many tortured animals. I will continue to visit your website for updates.

Reply from Frank and Mary Hoffman

Dear Sandra:

Thank you very much for kind and encouraging words.

Tomorrow, we are speaking at a Christian / animal conference in New Jersey on this very subject and the way Christians have failed to live in the will of God. As Mary says, "The Christianity of Jesus Christ has been hijacked."

In the Love of the Lord,

Frank and Mary
