The Fellowship of Life
I am glad when the Christmas “festival” is over as
it always nauseates me. In my opinion there are far more animal
cruelties in the name of religion than anything else, and instead of the
Churches trying to set a line for an attitude of compassion towards the
lower creatures they too often remain indifferent.
Apart from a few exceptions the Christian clergy could not care less.
As an example of the usual attitude on this matter, there was the
revolting case of the Baptist priest in America who cut a living lamb’s
throat at Easter a few years ago in full view of the congregation. I was
also shocked to read that a former Pope once went about blessing
Meat-eaters are fond of bringing up passages in the Bible which they
claim support their views such as the parable of “the fatted calf,” but
there is one other passage too, “He that killeth a beast killeth a man”
which is conveniently overlooked.
