Letter from Kelly Czermerys about Respecting God and His Creation Through Mercy and Compassion to All Creatures - 29 Jun 2006
I'm mostly vegetarian, trying to get to vegan. Your huge selection of recipes is a great help, and your writings are always an inspiration to keep cutting out animal products from my diet.
I also appreciate the Christian perspective--I've heard Christians use the Bible to justify indifference to animals (reasoning along the lines of, "God gave us dominion over the animals so we can do whatever we want with them"), but it seems obvious to me that the kindness and mercy we are to show carries over to all of His creations.
If Someone gave you a beautiful and valuable gift, how would the Giver feel if you abused and ruined it, versus how the Giver would feel if you treasured and cherished it?
It only makes sense to show love for God by showing appreciation for His creations! I'm glad to see such an extensive website getting the message out there--Good Job and God Bless!

Thank you very much for your kind and encouraging words.
You're absolutely correct about respecting God and His creation, for the only way we are ever going to have true peace on earth is through our respect of the rights that God gave to the whole of creation.
In the Love of the Lord,
Frank and Mary
