A Mary T. Hoffman Commentary from


"Joyful Curmudgeon" An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.


Celebrities - 16 April 2007
By Mary T. Hoffman

Why am I so cynical about some celebrities who lend their names to “causes”? Because so many of them are as dependable as the wind and as changeable.

Let me explain what I mean: First of all, there are quite a few who claim to be “for the animals” or “for the environment” but are simply “doggie-kitty” people or “meanie greenies.”

I remember a model who was “for” a pro-animal organization until she became “for” the fur industry! Then there’s the actress who, in a biographical article in a magazine, made it emphatically clear that she wasn’t one of those animal rights people! But she “loved animals”: “pets”!

And what about the “vegetarian” who later married a cattle rancher? Or the actress who became a spokesperson for a “charity” that funds animal- utilizing research!

Then there are those celebrities who are spokespersons for things “organic” or “environmental,” including those who have taken up buffalo and cattle farming as a hobby, et cetera.

You get the picture!
