Letter to the Secretary Of Agriculture Edward Schafer

Secretary of Agriculture Edward Schafer
Washington, DC

Dear Secretary of Agriculture Schafer,

Atrocious cruelty like that documented by The Humane Society of
the United States at Hallmark slaughterhouse must stop
immediately. (See the investigation video at
http://video.hsus.org/index.jsp?fr_story=346bfda2cbbf061e88fa57cbef243b30d049b3b7 .)
For the sake of animal welfare and food safety, please institute
a "bright line" ban on all downers in the food supply by closing
the loophole in USDA's current policy and by redirecting agency
resources to ensure meaningful enforcement.

This case illustrates the need for constant USDA supervision at
slaughter plants, including overseeing the way animals are
handled when they're moved off the truck, rather than occasional

Above and beyond the obvious physical health dangers to the
public involved in these egregious practices, is the moral
depravity. It is well known by psychologists that Cruelty
towards animals desentsitizes human beings to violence. This
translates into violence and other abuse (including mental and
emotional) towards other people including children.

These types of horrors uncovered by the HSUS must be branded as
felonies. The guilty (individuals and corporations) must be
vigorously investigated, guarded against, brought to justice and
punished severely.

Thank you for your consideration.

God's Creatures Ministry is committed to spreading God's compassion to all He has made based on The Scriptures. Although we are a Christian Ministry, we encourage all to have their own animal welfare committee in their community. We extend our resources to those who would like to learn more or begin their own God's Creatures Ministry as an extension of us. God created us to have a vegetarian diet and commissioned us to protect His animals. Instead, we have exploited them for our entertainment, fashion, appetite and useless, torturous research. These creatures have the right to live as they were created to live. Because we live IN this world, but are not OF this world, we strive to bring God's mercy and justice to all. We live in God's Kingdom now where Jesus, The Sacrificial Lamb, The Prince of Peace, The Lion of Judah reigns. We look forward to that day when all of creation will be 'set free from slavery to corruption and share in the glorious freedom of the children of God' (Romans 8:21) where a little child will lead and guide God's creatures (see Isaiah 11:5-9).
