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.


Responsible Policies for Animals, Inc. – 8 May 2008
By Mary T. Hoffman

One of my favorite organizations is Responsible Policies for Animals, Inc. A few years ago when we heard RPA’s founder David Cantor speak, we were impressed by his knowledge, integrity, and thoughtful, intelligent approach to bringing to nonhuman animals the species-appropriate legal rights they need.

As I learn more about the predicament of nonhuman animals, the irony that becomes apparent is that human beings have far more to gain by granting legal rights to nonhumans than by adhering to the status quo. Yet, they allow themselves to be influenced by those who really aren’t interested in the well-being of humans or nonhumans. We are so inundated by ads paid for by those who control what the media says. For example, how long do you think a medical doctor would last on a TV news channel if he or she told the truth?
