Listed below are links to organizations and individuals who are dedicated to
promoting and re-establishing compassion in society and religion. Our efforts
are based upon sound Biblical teachings, many of which have been glossed over
throughout the years. Far too many religious leaders and their congregations
have lost their discernment of God's compassionate intent toward all of
creation, including people, animals and the environment.
