Last US horse-slaughtering plant is granted a reprieve

because it will not be able to operate while its appeal of the court
ruling is pending.

This federal court decision is a
set-back in becoming better stewards of God’s Creation. Slaughtering
God’s animals for human profit and benefit shows how hardened our

plant-based diet for it honors God and benefits all Creation.
