Go Vegan for Lent

Published by PETA.

200_2D00_Lambs.jpg”For…give me vegan deliciousness, father,” might be the only thing that Catholics in confessionals need to say this Lent if the head of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops takes a tip from us. We’re asking him to encourage bishops around the country to ask their pastors to go vegan for Lent and to encourage congregants to do the same. When you eat cruelty-free, you’re saving lives, fighting world poverty, and curbing climate change—so you won’t have quite as much on your conscience.

With the season of abstinence just two weeks away, our Pledge to Go Vegan for Lent is the easiest way for Christians to honor God’s creatures, the world He entrusted to us, our own bodies, and each other.
