Christians Against All Animal Abuse
"Christ’s redemption is for the whole of creation!"
They’re opposing Christian Rights as well as Animal Rights
Under this present secularist Coalition, Christian Rights are fast
becoming as denunciatory as are Animal Rights. Yes, and spearheaded by
a ‘tally-ho’ Prime Minister whose expressed previous thrills of having
seen foxes chased to their death!
Thankfully, however, the new Archbishop Of Canterbury: Justin
Welby, is a strong fighter for traditional Christian Rights; while of
equal relevance to us in Animal Rights the new Pope has chosen his new
name in honour of Francis Of Assisi; the patron saint of animals! So I
hope that his pontificate lives up to his name .He will then be a true
contrast to predecessors who’ve adamantly affirmed that animals have
As for evangelical Christianity - which is
undoubtedly making the most headway numerically! – several of its
supporters have repeated “Brother Thompson, why are you so focussed on
animal cruelty? Get folk ‘saved’’ and they’ll automatically care for

the cries of the wordless weak.
From steet, from cage, from

For love is
the true religion, and love is the law sublime;
And all that is
wrought where love is nought shall fail at the touch of time
Then shame on the mothers of mortals who have not stooped to teach
Of the sorrow that lies in dear dumb eyes, the sorrow that has no
The same power formed the sparrow that fashioned ‘man
The God of the whole gave a loving soul to furred and
And I am my brother’s keeper; and I will
fight his fight
And speak the Word for beast and bird, till the
world shall set things right.
Go on to
Being unable to see beyond one’s nose!
