Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!

Horse for dinner

A recent article on TIME magazine on-line revealed the ethical relativism of humans, US residents in this case.

In this country, as Joel Stein notes, horses are not looked upon as food unlike the rest of farm animals. After race horse Barbaro’s injury and death, which drew great attention, more people are beginning to “see” that there should be no difference in the treatment of a cow or a horse.

The writer honestly accepts the inconsistency of ethical behavior, or lack thereof, toward different animals. He’s eaten horse meat and plans to continue, but as he states, “… until I decide to stop my less-than-noble practice of eating other animals, I've got little choice but to order up some more horse.”

Mr. Stein is right in that eating animals is a “less-than-noble practice” that people keep denying, most out of convenience. Until we treat all creatures with reverence and compassion, we cannot claim to love God’s Creation.
