Ethical eating was chosen Saturday as the next Congregational Study/Action Issue, defeating nuclear disarmament by a large margin.
The Rev. John Millspaugh, accompanied by members of the youth caucus, gave what may have been the most persuasive argument: "Eating is a delight for everyone, not just activists," Millspaugh said. "UUs love to eat! It will be fun to engage with this!"
Among the arguments in support of the CSAI was the fact that food production and distribution affects farm workers, who face deplorable working conditions; food purchasers may be economically limited in the kinds of food they are able to buy; and food producers face rising costs for transportation and other requirements.
