HSUS University: Being Squimish 101

The Humane Society of the United States is now offerring bachelor degrees? Yes, they are. Who saw that coming? Is there a class on being squimish at the site of meat?

Over at Advocates for Agriculture, Troy Hadrick comments, Normally, in order to receive a Bachelor of Science degree, you have to learn and utilize real scientific methodology during your studies. This doesn’t really jive with the normal operating procedures of the HSUS. Their emotion filled arguments contain more feeling than fact. I can only imagine what they will teach their students about livestock and food production.

Actually, Troy, "science" tends to lend more support for the agricultural practices HSUS pursues than the practices U.S. industries prefer. See here and here.
