Hannah Thompson-Weeman on the Book- What Would Jesus REALLY Eat?Fri, 06 Dec 2019 11:54:15
Earlier in 2019, a book was released that refutes some of the anti-agriculture rhetoric called "What Would Jesus Eat?" the biblical case for eating meat. Hannah Thompson-Weeman, Vice President of Communications for the Animal Agriculture Alliance, says this is a book that offers a strong defense for Christians who want to eat meat without feeling guilty, "Its actually a really interesting thing that activist groups are doing that a lot of people are surprised by, is targeting the faith-based community. Groups like HSUS and PITA actually have faith outreach people on staff who have been trained in this area, and their whole role is to go to faith-based organizations and large denominations and try to convince them to put policies in place that are negative to large scale animal agriculture or discouraging meat consumption in general."
Weeman goes onto say that your religion can be something sensitive, and people don't feel comfortable talking about it, so they wanted to help people have an excellent resource to have those kinds of conversations, "So the book "What Would Jesus Really Eat? The biblical case for eating meat did come out earlier this year, and it does look at meat consumption from several different angles that all have that base in theology. It actually includes a chapter from a swine veterinarian as well as a hog farmer, and it gives a really good perspective on what is a really interesting issue."†
Weeman says so far it's going really well and they have gotten some really great reactions, "Its a quick read and a very interesting read. Especially if you are interested in either these topics, you know faith or meat production."
