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.


Kangaroo Slaughter – 13 November 2007
By Mary T. Hoffman

We’re glad we stopped supporting Greenpeace years ago. It is absolutely disgusting that Greenpeace Australia promotes the killing of kangaroos for meat and leather, and that they export this meat to Germany, Russia, Belgium, and France. This is a massacre of three million adult kangaroos each year. And with each female kangaroo who is slaughtered, as many as three joeys in the pouch are killed. On 13 October 2007 Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger signed into law the repeal of a 1971 California ban on kangaroo leather sales. There seems to be no end to the hardness of heart of those who sell their souls in this world.

And as though their betrayal of the kangaroos isn’t bad enough, Greenpeace also supports the mass slaughter of harp seals in Canada and the trophy hunting of polar bears in Alaska and Canada.

The above information is based on an article from the October 2007 issue of “Animal People.”
