The cover of the latest issue of Successful Farming (one of agriculture's prime publications) was "HSUS goes to church" which is a story of how the humane society aims to influence animal agriculture through our religious institutions.
Yes, Humane Society of the United States is the organization behind the tear-jerking ads playing continuously on cable channels showing the sad faces of pets waiting to be adopted. These ads are very well done and are very effective because no one can resist the heart-tugging picture of a little puppy dog or kitty cat looking with sad eyes almost begging you to send a $10, $20, $50 or even a $100 bill to save them from death!
That's the public perception HSUS wants to advertise despite the fact less than 1 percent of their budget is spent on adoptions of unwanted animals and they euthanize (kill) more dogs and cats than all other organizations combined! Love animals and want to help? Go to any local animal shelter (People for Pets in Spencer) completely divorced from HSUS and adopt a pet or contribute directly to that organization.
So, why is HSUS in existence? Stripped to bare essentials, their one sole purpose is to make the world vegan and eliminate meat consumption by convincing the public modern animal production is cruel to animals. So, why are they trying to infiltrate our churches because the Bible I read gives man dominion over animals including their consumption? No! Really? Has progressive liberalism invaded the church elevating animals to the status of man?
A warning — if you're threatening one of my basic three food groups, (beer, butter or bacon) in the words of Merle Haggard, "you're walking on the fighting side of me!"
