Read this excellent New York Times’ op-ed in which the writer,
Frank Bruni, examines the advances in ethics as far as non-human
animals go. New laws, new documentaries, penalties for animal
abusers, etc. and especially the increasing awareness that non-human
animals are simply not different than us in the sense that they
value their lives as much as we values ours, is pushing humans to
recognize that we need to treat animals with dignity and respect.
This simply cannot happen if we continue to use them for our
According Animals Dignity.
God’s animals raised for food only know misery and death. There’s
no respect, no love and no dignity in the way they are treated. What
we do to them, we do to ourselves, because we see misery, sickness,
and devastation arising from it.
