Killing Animals is Killing the Planet!

Please read this article by Mercy for Animals


by Sarah Von Alt - December 7, 2015
Believe it or not, many people who care about the environment still have no idea that raising animals for food is so incredibly destructive.

Consider some of these facts:

  • Animal agriculture uses a whopping 56 percent of water in the United States. In fact, just one hamburger requires 660 gallons of water to produce—the equivalent of 2 months’ worth of showers.
  • Because animals are so densely packed on today's industrial farms, they produce more manure than can be absorbed by the land as fertilizer. The runoff from these facilities grossly contaminates rivers and ground water.
  • Animal agriculture is culpable for nearly 91 percent of Amazon destruction according to The World Bank.
  • Raising animals for food (including land for grazing and growing feed crops) now uses over one-thirdof the earth’s landmass.
  • Factory farms have created more than 500 nitrogen-flooded dead zones throughout the world’s oceans.
  • Raising animals for food produces more greenhouse gas emissions than all of the cars, planes, and other forms of transportation combined
  • Animals raised for food produce 7 million pounds of excrement every minute.
  • A pound of beef requires 13 percent more fossil fuels to produce than a pound of soy.
  • Overfishing is pushing our oceans to the brink of collapse, with over 90 percent of large fish at risk for total extinction.
  • But there’s good news too! Going vegan immediately cuts your CO2 emissions in half and spares countless animals from a lifetime of suffering on factory farms.

Christians do you care for God's creation?

I came across a great article today:

http://thefederalist.com/2016/08/19/the-plight-of-egg-laying-chickens-illustrates-whats-wrong-with-factory-farms/

So many Christians worry about being "kind"
being "holy" and "respectful"
and they forgot about God's creation and animals
Please read the entire article and these quotes:

“Christians and conservatives should contemplate their participation in a food system that undermines their understanding of the reality and nature of our world.”

We Have a Responsibility to Care for Creation


“Christian tradition establishes man’s preeminence of the created order. Formed from the dust of the ground, man’s oldest ancestor was made imago dei. God blessed the universe and its contents, and gave them to man as gifts. As the beneficiaries of these gifts, God instructed man to be fruitful, multiply, replenish the earth, and subdue it. He was called to exercise dominion over creation and faithfully steward its fruits.

In light of this dominion mandate found in the book of Genesis, consuming animal products is certainly within man’s prerogative. However, subjugating farm animals to the whims and will of industrial man is an abdication of man’s responsibility to the Creator. The grotesque images found on the factory farm do not reflect faithful stewardship of the created order. These images, instead, reflect selfish domination.”
Remember, there is a Christian Vegetarian Association!
