Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!
Nonhuman Personhood

This is a very compelling essay by Andrew C. Revkin, challenging readers to ask themselves why some sentient beings seem to be more worthy of rights and protection than others. He raises the issue of nonhuman personhood, pondering the question of basic rights such as to live free from human exploitation.

Please visit A Closer Look at 'Nonhuman Personhood' and Animal Welfare:
Indeed, the issue of animal rights is a very controversial one, especially because history has shown us that humans may rationalize horrific acts if they benefit from them (slavery, holocaust, Inquisition, factory farming, etc.). However, the undeniable evidence that God’s animals suffer much in our hands, and most of the time unnecessarily and unjustly, should prompt us to examine our motives. If our motives and choices are not aligned with our Faith, then we should make the necessary changes so they become aligned. I think that eating God’s animals, in this day and age, is mainly driven by taste, habit and convenience and not by compassion, mercy and love.
