The “King Amendment”, which would have nullified virtually every
state law in the U.S. protecting farmed animals from even egregious
cruelty, was dropped from the House farm bill yesterday. This is
clearly a victory for animal advocates.
King Amendment Officially Dead.
This is great news for God’s animals raised for food and for
anyone who chooses compassion over cruelty and peace over violence.
This is also a reminder that there are still many people, much like
Rep. King, who look at God’s animals as simple commodities to be
used and abused for profit, convenience and power.
There’s much work to do but there are many of us who truly
believe that being good stewards of God’s Creation means to do our
best to live in harmony with our fellow Earthlings.
