Letter from Jenny Moxham to the Editor: Shouldn’t be on the Menu - 12 Oct 2010

12 Oct 2010
Port Phillip Leader
By Jenny Moxham,

I’M shocked.

I’ve just learned that St James the Great church, St Kilda East, provided a sausage sizzle following the recent St Francis Day pet blessing ceremony (Critical list, Leader, September 28).

Were these vegetarian sausages? Presumably not.

St Francis Day – otherwise known as World Animal Day – is the one day of the year when kindness and compassion for animals should be encouraged.

It’s a day when churches should be calling for a boycott of factory farms, not supporting and endorsing them.
