There's a ton of famous professors from CSU - Temple may rank, but hardly "the most famous"
Fair enough, but she is the most famous scientist in the country on the humane treatment of animals in the agriculture industry.
That's my point. If the foremost expert says something is okay, I'm going to be fairly well convinced that what they say is valid; and if I doubt what they say, I'm going to seek out the answer independently on my own. If I witness something with my own eyes and learn everything possible about the subject for over four years (which I did concerning foie gras) and my opinions align with the foremost expert in the field, along with most farmers and anyone else who has visited the farm? I'm going to be highly convicted in my opinions.
The thing is my opinion on the subject really has little to do with my like of Foie Gras as food. I do like it, but I'm no DHJ. I'd be far more pissed off if the government told me I couldn't eat beef anymore than foie gras. It's about having met the farmers, knowing their passion for treating their livestock well and having their livelihoods attacked for no reason at all.
People should be more informed before rushing to judgment.
