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.


Organizations That Are Actually Pro-Hunting – 8 July 2007
By Mary T. Hoffman

Two days ago – 6 July 2007 – I wrote “Do You Support Animal Cruelty and Don’t Know It?” I mentioned some organizations that many people mistakenly support.

Today I want to mention the excellent work that Anthony Marr, founder of Heal Our Planet Earth (HOPE), is doing. See: 

In Anthony Marr’s words, here is some very important information that donors need to know:

“Tons of animal-loving anti-hunting donors' hard-earned money and heart-given donations are pumped into pro-hunting and downright hunting organizations with names like the Audubon Society, the National Wildlife Federation, the Nature Conservancy, the Sierra Club, to name just a few. (At least the Safari Club International, the quintessential big-game hunters' club, of which both Presidents Bush, and VP Cheney on down, are members, is more honest with its self-indicting nomenclature.) Not only are vast financial resources injected into these imposter groups from the innocent animal-loving public, but the AR [animal rights] and AW [animal welfare] movements are deprived of these same resources in the process, so the damage done to the AR/AW [animal rights/animal welfare] movement is doubled.”
