Double Moral Standard

Michael Vick's case helped expose the cruelty involved in dog-fighting and Americans showed outrage to such barbaric "sport". However, the more than 10 billion animals that are annually killed in the US for food do not receive any compassion from all those that still support the meat and dairy industry.

As Gary Francione says, "Vick may have enjoyed watching dogs fight; someone else may find that repulsive but see nothing wrong with eating an animal who has had a life as full of pain and suffering as the lives of the fighting dogs."

Sadly, Christians in general are no exception as far as this double moral standard goes, when we should be the ones showing compassion and mercy to God’s animals. Maybe with the exposure of the victimization of farmed animals, Christian leaders might decide to include animal issues in their radar.
