Our Sermon Section
By Maynard S. Clark - 25 Jun 2012
In Reference to: 24 June 2012 - Belief is Passive - Faith is Active
Frank's sermon pointed us toward the day when all nature would be liberated from oppression and to our transformed and transformative human role in pointing towards that liberation and helping (as some would say) 'bring in the kingdom'.
In my activist Meetup group, Boston Thoughtful World-Transforming Vegan Movers & Shakers, new members are asked to respond thoughtfully to these five (5) thought-provoking questions, which *several of us thought were pretty basic* for anyone who considers herself or himself an activist on behalf of oppressed animals. Movers/Shakers Questions (5)
1. What inspires you to believe (or hope) that human oppression of nonhuman persons can change profoundly?
2. In which areas have you thought the most about the historic ethical transformation of human relationships with nonhumans
3. What kinds of private, individual, activist commitments are necessary and effective in coaching systematically ethical relationships towards nonhuman persons?
4. What kinds of general public commitments are necessary and effective in coaching humans to develop systematically ethical relationships towards nonhuman persons?
5. Why is consistent veganism the moral baseline for humans who care about nonhuman persons?
