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.


Cage-Free Eggs – 12 May 2008
By Mary T. Hoffman

“Cage-Free Eggs: A Humane Alternative?” is an excellent article in the latest issue of Vegetarian Voice, the quarterly magazine of the North American Vegetarian Society (NAVS).

Here are a few important statements from this truth-telling article:

Cage-free hens and battery hens both come from the same hatcheries where male chicks are suffocated or ground up alive.

…most cage-free hens are debeaked.

According to Michele Alley-Grubb, cofounder and operator of the Peaceful Prairie Sanctuary in Colorado, some of the most egregious cases of animal abuse they have encountered have come from so-called “cage-free” facilities and “family” farms.

One of the most destructive things we can do for the animals is to lie to ourselves or allow ourselves to be fooled and misinformed into believing that animal agriculture of any kind is humane.

So true! Please don’t fall for the lies of the animal product industries. There are no “happy” animals in these living hells.
