Faith and Animal Welfare

The protection of all of God's creatures is finding some acceptance in the religious arena. Although the animal activist movement is usually seen as a secular and liberal cause, animal activists are reaching sectors throughout the political, social and spiritual spectrum. According to Christine Gutleben, who directs the new "animals and religion" program at the Humane Society of the United States, the evangelical community "is expanding its definition of values to include work on poverty and the environment. We hope to insert concern for animal welfare as well."

Although animal welfare is not in the center of the spiritual radar, there has been some progress that focuses on extending our circle of compassion beyond humanity, to all of God’s creatures. Hopefully, more people of faith will realize the importance of being good stewards of God’s animals, and reflecting God’s love for all Creation.
