Letter from Chandani Diaz about Hinduism and Christianity - 13 Feb 2008
I love your website (hate the cruelty) and want you to know that it is not only a "Christian" battle against cruelty towards animals. We are Hindu and live a vegan lifestyle because we cannot hurt a living creature. We do not even consume dairy or eggs.
We do not feel that God put these creatures on earth to be tortured or eaten. God HELP the ones who abide by this killing and torture - they will PAY in the afterlife. We even take spiders, ants and bees outside. There is a form of Hinduism even stricter than ours - called Jainism - where followers wear masks so as not to accidentally swallow any living thing. LIFE is sacred to many religions.
Thank you for making people aware,
"Karma = what you do or don't do with gifts from God. The choice is yours - not "fate" - you can harm; you can heal; you can hate, you can love; you can sit back and do NOTHING; you can HELP OTHERS; you can ignore Him; you can praise His wonders. It is all up to you - your actions or even lack of actions all have consequences".

Thank you very much for writing to us, and for telling us about your faith, love of animals, and your desire to protect them. And, we agree with you that God didn't put the animals on earth for humans to to torture and eat.
The problem with Christianity is that most Christians either don't believe this about animals, or they don't want to believe it, because it would require them to be accountable to God, and they would have to change their lifestyles. So, most of their teachers lie to them, and they lie to themselves, which really means that they are not following the God they claim to follow. This is very sad, and we are working to bring the light of truth into their darkness.
In the Love of the Lord,
Frank and Mary
