“Catholic teaching about stewardship of creation leads us to question certain farming practices, such as the operation of massive confined animal feeding operations. We believe that these operations should be carefully regulated and monitored so that environmental risks are minimized and animals are treated as creatures of God.”
—from United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, For I was Hungry and You Gave Me Food: Catholic Reflections on Food, Farmers, and Farmworkers (Washington, DC: United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, 2004), 31.
We as Catholic use our vote to express our beliefs. We research charities to make sure they are not giving money to planned parenthood. Shouldn’t we be using our diets and where we buy our food from to express our faith also?
We need to question ourselves on topics like:
- Do we need to eat meat and if so do we need it 3 times a day plus snacks.
- Where does our food come from?
- What sort of treatment does our food go through (from physical to chemical)
