Archbishop Desmond Tutu on Behalf of God’s Animals

Archbishop Desmond Tutu is making headlines once again, but this time is not because of his tireless work to end discrimination among humans but actually to expose the injustice animals are subjected to. He states, “I have seen firsthand how injustice gets overlooked when the victims are powerless or vulnerable, when they have no one to speak up for them and no means of representing themselves to a higher authority. Animals are in precisely that position. Unless we are mindful of their interests and speak out loudly on their behalf, abuse and cruelty go unchallenged.

It is a kind of theological folly to suppose that God has made the entire world just for human beings, or to suppose that God is interested in only one of the millions of species that inhabit God’s good earth.”

Please visit Desmond Tutu on Animal Welfare: We Must Fight Injustice to Animals

It’s fantastic that such a prominent church leader recognizes and voices the massive victimization of God’s animals. Archbishop Desmond Tutu is setting an incredible precedent at stating that we must fight the terrible injustice to animals, especially because they are vulnerable and are also God’s creatures.
