For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul?

If we truly care about CAFOs and slaughterhouses located by three houses and, say, a Dollar General store or lake cottages and country clubs and ball-playing fields, we need to speak out for those animals to be confined and treated like merchandise and factory products and bred in droves only to be butchered for unwise and unhealthy human consumption.

(Note to self: I have trouble remembering CAFO means “concentrated animal feeding operation” … because they are horrible contrivances. Hell on earth from them that quote the Bible! Hrumpffffffff! Concentrated as in CONCENTRATION camps! Tragic. I have a mental block about remembering this acronym. Good for me!)

We read lots of words and listen to oodles of talking about the environment, property values in jeopardy, landscapes defiled, health issues, political sides taken and even quotes from the Bible, but seldom do we learn the importance of the crux of the matter which rests in the fact that all species matter and should be treated kindly.

Reproduction of sentient beings leading to eventual slaughter is beyond belief to any human being who possesses a brain and emotional intelligence and a conscience. Why is the most important of “issues” avoided by the good ole “powers that be” … the profit seekers, the money grubbers, the pirates, the killers?

Save the animals by donating to causes which celebrate life and do not profit from destroying life. The world is moving forward. Peace … it can be wonderful!

There must be a Bible quote dealing with sheer thoughtless greed and the horrors it so casually produces. Oh, yeah, there are a few …

An inheritance gained hastily in the beginning will not be blessed in the end. – Proverbs 20:21

But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. – Timothy 6:9

No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money. – Matthew 6:24

And in their greed they will exploit you with false words. Their condemnation from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep. – 2 Peter 2:3

For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul? – Mark 8:36

Do I hear some “hallelujahs”? Then speak up and stop the madness and thanks!
