Each year more than 17 billion fish are killed for food. Just like the dogs and cats many of us share our homes with, fish are highly social animals and don’t want to be suffocated and cut open while they’re still fully conscious. This story out of Panama suggests that the tide may be turning:
The Schultz family – Bob, his son Stephen, and 20-year old daugher Allison – were on a fishing trip off the coast of Panama. Bob had taken his children to Panama for some quality time away from the demands of telephones and every day life before his son went away to college.
Stephen had hooked a Black Marlin when the boat was about 30 miles off shore. Estimated at 600 pounds, the fish leapt out of the water and crashed into the stern of the boat, landing right on the young angler.
Mates quickly cut the thrashing fish loose and all attention turned to Stephen, now lying on the deck and bleeding profusely from the nose and mouth.
Free “Jesus Loves Me Too” Stickers
Our “Jesus Loves Me Too” stickers have caused Christian youth across the country to ask what Jesus would eat if he were alive today. He certainly wouldn’t support huge factory farms that confine chickens to filthy metal cages with no room to even flap a wing and cut the beaks off baby birds. To help us spread the word, we want you to write letters to the editor of your local and school papers. Check out this latest Street Team mission for more information and to order your free stickers now.
