Embrace Kindness This Easter

Written by Jennifer O'Connor | April 11, 2014

With Easter just around the corner, we’re hoping to spread the word to Christians about including everyone in the season’s spirit of salvation by placing our thought-provoking billboard near mega-churches in North Carolina and Alabama.

North Carolina is one of the nation’s top pig-killing states, but pigs, like all of us, value their lives and don’t want to die. That’s why we’re encouraging Christians to live out the message of kindness that Jesus taught in the Golden Rule—”in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you” (Matthew 7:12)—by leaving pigs off their plates this Easter.

Factory farms are hell on Earth for animals. They’re crammed by the thousands into dark sheds and feedlots, living in their own waste without ever feeling grass beneath their feet. When it comes time for their slaughter, they are packed into trucks without any concern for their welfare and driven in all weather extremes to slaughterhouses, where they have their throats slit and are mutilated and dismembered piece by piece. To treat God’s creation in such a way is wrong.

What better way to honor Christ’s example of including everyone in your circle of compassion than by embracing mercy and refusing to support cruelty every time you sit down to eat? Order your free vegan starter kit today.

    I live in NC and seeing pig trucks and thinking about the horrible stuff that goes on in my home state disgusts me!

  • This is a horrid, set them free, back in the oceans where they belong. It’s just wrong period. Put all the owners who are making so much money on these mammals. Will never go to Seaworld ever!!!
