Whose Life Is More Important?
Comments by Steve - 3 Jul 2009

In reference to the comment below, animals in the wild generally do quite well on their own, without human intervention, protection, and love. There are occasional exceptions when it comes to domesticated animals, who have been bred to have behaviors that are conducive to exploitation by humans and that also often make the animals unfit to survive in the wild.

I think all of Creation matters to God. That being said, I'm not convinced about an "order to creation," because scientifically I don't see it. Justice for animals often means simply leaving them alone. Our paternalistic care is necessary for the well-being of many domesticated animals, bearing in mind that many of these animals shouldn't have been bred in the first place.
