No burgers, please

In all humility, I would have to take issue with the "Burgers for Christ" concept of evangelism espoused in your editorial (18 March). If today's Christians are to exemplify a lifestyle characterised by mercy and love, then the by-products of slaughterhouses need greater contemplation in the light of the increasingly compassionate society which we seek to convert!

Far more refreshing reading was to be found in Rob Warner's sympathetic evaluation of Christian duties - yes, they do exist - to the plight of animals and the environment. It is interesting to note also that the Archbishop of Bologna has inadvertently identified such issues as belonging to the wider category of general philanthropy.

So often, "Christian" objections to concern for animals are anything but!
