Newark, N.J. – This morning, PETA’s Christian outreach division, PETA LAMBS (“Least Among My Brothers and Sisters” from Matthew 25:40), despatched a letter to town’s archbishop, Joseph W. Tobin, hoping to influence him to exchange his church’s inventory of Introduction candles with vegan ones freed from beeswax, tallow from slaughterhouses, and another animal-derived ingredient.
The illuminating letter insists that God meant for people to be caretakers of all his creation, but many candles comprise substances derived from the abuse and slaughter of canines, cats, cows, sheep, and pigs. Rendering firms course of carcasses into purified fat like tallow, and for beeswax, it’s frequent for producers to clip the queen bee’s wings to stop her from leaving the colony and forcibly inseminate her.

Vegan Introduction candles can be found from CocoSoy, DEMDACO, and Bear Pure Organics. PETA LAMBS—which has additionally despatched letters to cardinals in Chicago and Boston—presents an enlightening information to discovering animal-free candles for the Introduction season and past.
