Greetings of love and gratitude from
At Biemer’s Bar-B-Q, in Lawrence,
Kansas, they have a tall sign with a space for messages to
Many of the messages have been exceptionally
violent and disgusting, with sexual and sexist overtones. The most
recent message displayed in large letters on their sign was “Smokin’
Butts.” This is a family restaurant and the sign is visible to
all who can read, including children. The words are there next to
the logo which shows a pig with a napkin around his neck as if he is
going to dine there. While anger and disgust may be our first
reaction, looking deeper we see how embedded the mindset of domination
is in our culture. The shocking (to us) disrespect for pigs, for
children, for women, and for people’s natural desire to love is
accepted as normal. As activists, our calling is to bring sanity,
truth, and compassion to human consciousness and to help people awaken
to the brainwashing that is going on every day.
Prayers and Visions of Pigs in Loving
Sanctuaries and Never Again on Abusive Signs.
let us carry in our hearts the deep love and respect we have for
pigs. These are our brothers and sisters, so intelligent,
playful, and willing, if given a chance, to be our friends. Let
us also be aware of the tsunami of advertising in every media, the lies
told from grade school to government—all pressuring human beings to buy
into the false lifestyle that thrives on violence.
Let us fan the flames of love in all hearts with our actions, prayers,
and focused intentions. Let us feel the endless well of
compassion in our hearts for the people who are not yet questioning the
status quo. For they are suffering under the weight of a culture
of violence, domination, and destruction. And let us take time to
feel immense joy as we picture the world of peace and freedom for pigs
and people and everyone else that we are helping to create.
As always, with tears of gratitude, I send my thanks to each of you,
dear Prayer Circle members, for joining this circle of compassion and
shining the Light of Truth for all to see, so that one day soon, all
beings will live in peace together.
May compassion and love reign over all the earth for all beings
Thank you all for your devotion to truth, love, liberation and peace
for all beings.
With Love, peace, and gratitude from Judy Carman, and greetings from
