Take Heart!

Horse advocate

Willie Nelson, American entertainer and song writer, has decided to use his voice and popularity to help protect horses from being slaughtered and shipped oversees for food consumption.

We, Christian vegetarians, are probably asking: what is the difference between a horse and a cow or any other farmed animal? Why is the public so against the consumption of horse meat but keep supporting the cruelty involved in raising and slaughtering the rest of the animals for food? Willie Nelson is right in that horses need not to be eaten; however, it’s not because they are part of the American Heritage, but because they’ve been created by God to glorify him and share the earth with us.
