Rev. Miles Exposes Rep. Steve King

Reverend Austin Miles has written a fantastic piece exposing and questioning Rep. Steve King's (R-Iowa) morality. Rev. Miles lists King’s extensive "callous and uncaring" voting record against animal welfare in the last 9 years, and calls this behavior “disturbing” and “sinful”. A few examples of animal-related legislation that King has opposed include: an amendment cracking down on bear baiting on federal lands, a bill banning horse slaughter for human consumption, an act strengthening penalties for dogfighting and cockfighting, a bill prohibiting the sale of primates as pets and several other pieces of legislation aimed at protecting wildlife species.

Indeed, Mr. King’s clear opposition to alleviating the suffering of God’s animals is callous and merciless. Let’s hope people learn about this and stop supporting him and his agenda, which is obviously backed by people who benefit from the exploitation of these innocent creatures.

Mr. King should also be recipient of our compassion; because those who lack empathy for the pain of others have also been shown little empathy and compassion. After all, in this web of love, God’s Creation, we are all connected. Once we see ourselves in others we don’t want to cause pain and suffering.
