All of God's creatures have rights, a fact that most people don't seem to recognize. This includes both human and non-human animals, but not all of them can speak for themselves.
Why slaughter the innocent turkey,
At a time when we're meant to show peace?
Why butcher the pigs at a time of goodwill,
And torture and terrify geese?
If we celebrate Christmas by killing,
Aren't we turning it into a sham?
Does it really make sense to sing about peace
And then feast upon turkey and ham?
