Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!
America’s Double Standard

While Jane Velez-Mitchell, host of "Issues with Jane Velez-Mitchell," a topical event-driven show that airs every night at 7 ET on HLN, believes Michael Vick should not be allowed to ever own a dog, she thinks that he might get away with it by arguing that he’s been a victim of a double standard. Velez-Mitchell rightly highlights the incredible inconsistence that is well-accepted by most Americans of treating some animals well and others as commodities (farmed animals, fur animals, etc.)

To read the article please visit Michael Vick doesn't deserve a dog:

The horrendous treatment of farmed animals is indefensible. From an ethical and spiritual point of view, a dog, a cat, a pig or a chick should be treated the same way. However, in today’s society, sadly, even Christians try to excuse or rationalize the obvious inconsistence of having some animals as “pets” and others as “food”. It is time that we all align our most-inner values and beliefs with our food choices.
