Question: Would Jesus have advocated the disgusting torture that animals endure throughout their lives in present-day slaughterhouses? While you clearly say eating dead animals is okay by God and the Bible, the Bible also says slavery is fine and selling one’s daughter is okay.

Question: When we are in heaven all is perfect. Isaiah 65:25 says, “The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent’s meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the LORD.” In heaven, no one will…

Question: In regards to “What about those farmers who torture their animals?” “There are laws in every state opposing cruelty to animals. I daily read about accounts where they are being enforced. Farmers who mistreat their livestock would not stay in business. Mistreated animals don’t make good breeders or good food.” If we want to…

Question: What about these awful farms that keep calves anemic and torture them just to offer veal on a menu when we already have meat choices. At one point is it torture? Do you feel God would accept the way we farm today? Is there a list of Christian farmers that can be circulated to…

Question: If “Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you. I have given you all things, even as the green herbs” according to your post on PETA’s statement that Jesus did not eat meat – what prevents people from eating each other?  I am a vegetarian who eats fish.  I am not a follower of…

Question: I read your article about the Bible and animal rights, and I see that it is right on. Anyone with biblical knowledge knows it is. My problem is not with the use of animals for food or leather, etc, but with the unbiblical practices of big agriculture, which unduly confines, often beats, and misuses animals.…
