Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!

Rabbi Samson Rafael Hirsch
(1808 - 1888), father of German Jewish orthodoxy, Chief Rabbi of Austria, Horeb, Chapter 60, Section 415. 

"There are probably no creatures that require more the protective Divine word against the presumption of man than the animals, which like man have sensations and instincts, but whose body and powers are nevertheless subservient to man. In relation to them man so easily forgets that injured animal muscle twitches just like human muscle, that the maltreated nerves of an animal sicken like human nerves, that the animal being is just as sensitive to cuts, blows, and beating as man. Thus man becomes the torturer of the animal soul."
