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.


Meany Greenie – 11 March 2008
By Mary T. Hoffman

Meany Greenies are individuals and environmental organizations that support hunting, animal slaughter, and animal farming while soliciting donations for the protection of the environment and wildlife. This is both hypocritical and counterproductive to an otherwise noble and important cause.

In today’s mail we received just such a solicitation requesting a donation – this one is from a Meany Greenie called Earthjustice. Nowhere in their enclosed “2008 Docket” which lists national and international issues under headings such as “global warming,” “clean air,” and “environmental health” is there any mention of the enormous pollution from animal agribusiness and the clearing of the rainforests to grow feed crops for cattle who emit more greenhouse gases (methane) than all forms of transportation in the world combined.

To learn which organizations are reputable and focus on true environmental protection without hunting and animal slaughter, and how to identify Meany Greenie organizations, so that you don’t end up donating to them thereby aiding the opposition, please visit:
