Our Silence About Animal Abuse Promotes Abuse of Humans
Comments by Deanna Wagner - 27 Aug 2003


I have difficulty understanding your two beliefs that 1) suicide is not a sin, but 2) killing animals is a sin. I guess I find it inconsistent, with all due respect to your position. I think that life is a gift to cherish.

I give thanks to God for all the diverse life on this planet. I think that when people don't respect life, whether it's their own, their children's, their companion animal, or animals in the wild, then animal and human abuse can and does result. But sometimes it is more compassionate to end severe suffering then to prolong it. It's a very gray area when you really get down to it. I suppose I am speaking about taking life for granted and ending it. I believe this is sinful whether it's your own life, your neighbor's, or your dog's.

Thanks, Rod, for explaining your position. Peter denied Christ in much the same way, first proclaiming he would never do such a thing.
