Dear Frank and Mary,

I read your article and was most impressed by it.  I'm not as literate on the computer as I'd like to be, so I'm trying to figure out how to save it and file it for future use.

I agree with you, of course.  I think the underlying cause of the Christian blindness to the plight of animals is its connection with pro-choice political liberalism. And, of course, the issue of animal rights is new to the consciousness, not to mention the conscience. The extreme-radical animal rights movement, connected to Peter Singer and his philosophy (which, I have heard, includes bestiality) is repugnant to Christians.  And not much, if any, distinction is made between that movement and traditional vegetarianism.

Not too many days ago, one of the christianveg members wrote of an article on the front page of The Catholic Reporter called "The Ethics of Eating," which reported on the abuses of factory farming.  Maybe it's a beginning.....
