Letter from C. Vance about the Inhumane Treatment of Chickens - 7 Sep 2007


After reading your God and Chick-fil-A article regarding the inhumane way they treat chickens, I feel I may never eat their food again. Or any other meat for that matter. I am now considering becoming vegan and/or vegetarian. Or are those the same thing? If not, what is the difference?

This is all new to me so I apologize for my ignorance. My stomach is still turning after reading about the chicken slaughters as I just ate chick-fil-a for lunch.

Thank you for posting that information.

Thank you for writing and for your decision.

We like to believe that being vegetarian and vegan are the same thing, but some people eat dairy products and still consider themselves vegetarian, which is a contradiction in terms. Being vegan is also a way of life in which the person, for reasons of compassion, doesn't eat, wear, or use any animal or animal byproduct.

We also have a recipe section on our All-Creatures web site you might be interested in:

We look forward to hearing from you again.

In the Love of the Lord,

Frank and Mary
