This article is a beautiful reminder that animals are God's creation, and should be treated with as much love as humans...

I'm assuming Theodor Adorno was not a Christian, but I still like this quote...

"Auschwitz begins whenever someone looks at a slaughterhouse and thinks: they are only animals."

Theodor Adorno (1903-1969), German Marxist philosopher, sociologist, and musicologist

“Animals are God's creatures, not human property, nor utilities, nor resources, nor commodities, but precious beings in God's sight…Christians whose eyes are fixed on the awfulness of crucifixion are in a special position to understand the awfulness of innocent suffering. The Cross of Christ is God's absolute identification with the weak, the powerless, and the vulnerable, but most of all with unprotected, undefended, innocent suffering.”—Reverend Andrew Linzey



'Animals have done us no harm and they have no power of resistance. There is something so dreadful in tormenting those who have never harmed us, who cannot defend themselves, who are utterly in our power' .........Cardinal John Henry Newman.
