We read with interest your interview with Tom Regan [Autumn '88]. As part of the 'faithful' working within the movement we are well aware of the bias of many against utilising the latest animal welfare/rights materials, including Regan's excellent video 'We are all Noah', and Rev'd Andrew Linzey's books.

There is much ignorance of the beginnings of the animal welfare movement - many clergy were actively involved last century - and the reforming power of the Church. The 'faithful' - which in this country number over 70% of the population - cannot be overlooked. They won't go away, nor should they.

It is a sad problem when they are persecuted by agnostics within the movement, instead of being welcomed and encouraged.
