Our Hypocrisy to God’s Animals

This powerful column by Nicholas D. Kristof explores the capacity of humans to act in incredibly cruel ways towards other humans and animals. Kristof also explores the way humanity has dealt with animals and our hypocrisy to them, by exploiting them indiscriminately while admiring and recognizing their qualities and abilities. In fact, he asks, "will our descendants be mystified by how good and decent people in the early 21st century — that’s us — could have been so oblivious to the unethical treatment of animals?"

Please visit Can We See Our Hypocrisy to Animals?
In the U.S. (all 50 states) and in many other countries, there are laws that protect companion animals from cruelty; while at the same time, countless other species are legally exploited in terrible ways. This split that occurs in our conscience carries tremendous consequences, including the vast disease, violence and environmental destruction in all of God’s Creation.
