There is info about a certain cult's animal activist activities and clashes with mainstream vegan activists (I think Voice magazine in Germany, but I could be wrong since I don't read German) on the German Wikipedia page at http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universelles_Leben but it has not been translated into English at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universal_Life I really want to read about this controversy, but unfortunately I only speak English.
Another problem is that I'm hoping maybe someone here can fix is that there is no link ":en:" to the English site on any of the pages for U.L. in other languages (German, Hungarian, and Polish).
Yet another problem is that it is an orphaned article. There are no links to it on other Wikipedia article pages, so it's difficult for surfers to stumble upon the English U.L. article.
It is also still a stub, so I'm hoping someone here can contribute more neutral info to the article, so the article becomes longer.
Has anyone heard of this strange Christian group before? It seems pretty unknown outside the German-speaking world. It is the only Christian denomination that takes animal cruelty seriously, in my opinion. There are other Christian denominations that promote vegetarianism, but they seem to do it for health reasons (like the Seventh-Day Adventists). Though, someone told me that they heard that they don't believe that animals are equal to humans, and someone else told me that they are not vegan, one of the reasons being that they think butter made from cow's milk isn't part of the cow's body (but the milk before it's made into butter is? Strange). I couldn't really understand her because English was not her mother tongue. U.L. produces a lot of materials in English and many other languages, but I have such a hard time finding attacking literature on them written in English. It's also disconcerting when I post on cult messageboards about them and get zero responses. Sure, stuff about Madonna and Tom Cruise and Jonestown get a lot of hits, but nothing for mine! Sheesh.
