Oh Brother, Father!!
I’d have thought a ‘Christian’ might have been a little more compassionate toward his fellow animals. Are they not, in his church’s teaching, also God’s creatures?
Leaving aside his lack of compassion, the fault in his reasoning is that he sees only two options – mules sheep or have them suffer from fly-strike. There are more – from spending more time (and money – that’s the catch isn’t it?) on monitoring and crutching to not farming these wrinkly Merino sheep at all.
And why is it that he fears that giving greater respect to the interests of nonhumans somehow reduces the status of humans? Don’t we reach our greatest humanity when we treat others with respect and compassion?
Like the good Father, I don’t want to be ‘forced’ into anything but I can heartily recommend veganism. I’d suggest he give it a try – he’ll save a lot of suffering as well as a lot of CO2 emissions.
