Excerpt of Michael Fox Interview in Vegetarian Times, 1989

In the January 1989 issue of Vegetarian Times, then-HSUS vice president Dr. Michael Fox discussed his leadership of the HSUS-affiliated Center for Respect of Life and Environment (CRLE).

In the interview, Fox admitted to using CRLE to promote meat-free diets through a “covert vegetarian message.”

He then goes on to say that such a stealth approach also “is part of the ecumenical approach that the HSUS follows.” Fox notes that he himself has gone “from being a meat eater to … trying to live as close as possible to the principles of ahisma [nonviolence], that is, as a vegetarian.”  (The whole interview can be found here.)
