It is said that the Pope reads all of his e-mails. Please send your message using the below SAMPLE LETTER as a guide, and Arthur Poletti’s letter as inspiration.

A message from Arthur Poletti to Pope Benedict XVI

His Holiness, Pope Benedict XVl

Dear Most Holy Father,

Being the Pope is not easy. Sometimes, with God’s guidance you must go against the status quo when you are certain you are right about a controversial subject and take a FIRM stand against overwhelming odds.

No matter what the majority of the people in the world may think or say.

Especially when YOUR HOLINESS KNOWS you are supporting and promoting THE WILL OF GOD.

I am sure you will agree that God is the supreme symbol of compassion, kindness, life, and love for all creatures with a soul, which proves why God wants all animal factory farms and slaughterhouses to close, yes?

Your Holiness, for this reason you should seriously consider the significance of God’s will and the multitude of benefits that would most certainly occur if you stopped eating animal flesh and dairy products and announced to the world that you are A VEGAN.

Your announcement that you have stopped eating animal flesh and dairy products will promote — VEGANISM — like never before, and it will convince millions of people that you are PERSONALLY SUPPORTING your love and GOD’S LOVE FOR ALL ANIMALS, setting the precedent for many religious leaders and government officials throughout the world to appreciate and emulate.

Holy Father, your historic action of becoming the FIRST VEGAN POPE will send a powerful message throughout the world, like a “lightning bolt from heaven,” that God and “Your Holiness” want factory farms and slaughterhouses to close ending the hideous torture and MASS MURDER of billions of God’s precious creatures.

Many immediate urgently-needed benefits for animals, humans, the earth, and the earth’s atmosphere will most certainly occur as well as a multitude of endless residual benefits, all because of your COURAGEOUS announcement.

Thank you, Your Holiness, for your important consideration and most needed action promoting *THE WILL OF GOD* and GOD’S love for all animals.

His Holiness, Pope Benedict XVl

Dear Most Holy Father,

It is sure that God is compassionate, but He is also certainly unwilling to excuse the massive exploitation of animal deaths, be they for food, fashion, or fun.  Based on His teachings, we know that Eden was the ideal, a vegan world where no animals were killed. We should strive for this vegan ideal. Please allow me to explain the wisdom of this definite precept.

Speciesism, the prejudicial regard elevating human animals to a superior status as compared to non-human animals, thus validating a lack of compassion towards them, is dangerous and immoral. This is not an ideal precept but rather an unethical display of bias. The fact that human animals strive endlessly to disguise the deliberate enslavement, torture, and killing of animals using solicitous excuses such as need, desire, want, and finances demonstrates the fundamentally specious nature of such justifications. Indeed, if you replace pig, cow, dog, or deer with human, you will shock yourself into a disturbing submission of shame: duplicitous exclamations may serve to benefit humans, but they do nothing to conceal the deaths of others. When a life is intentionally taken so maliciously and callously, that it was human or non-human is irrelevant, that it was taken so maliciously and callously is, which is a viable teaching of the Lord. The devalue of life, and the disregard of suffering and death does not make the action invisible or obscured or acceptable, it only makes it appropriate to the people who exploit a definition, who corrupt sentience, and who subvert life to validate the deliberate termination of it.

Dear Most Holy Father, please reconsider your position and remember via the teachings what we have learned about the real victims, the animals, whose blood is so callously deemed irrelevant, whose lives are ended at the beginning of a weapon, stolen as inconsequential by hands demanding death. Please be a symbol of love, equity, and compassion to the global community by becoming the first vegan Pope and heralding in a new non-suffering world by teaching God’s followers that they, too, should reject exploitation by discontinuing animal suffering and becoming vegan.

Thank you, Most Holy Father, for taking the time to consider this important appeal.

    I’ll write and naturally share. But this time I’m not optimistic. Sorry, I live in Italy and the pope is everything but compassionate

      Thanks for your help nonetheless, hon, you know better than any.

      The one person in the world that should be compassionate to all life is the Pope. The real truth is that only a Vegan should be allowed to be the Pope.promoting kindness and life for humans and animals.

        I absolutely agree. I cannot understand how people of God can be so blind to compassion.
