Veganism & Religion: Do Christianity & Animal Rights go Hand in Hand?
Can veganism & religion go hand in hand? Reverend Andrew Linzey explains what the bible says about the notion of animal rights, as well as how it is manifested in today's world.
Many religious people are choosing to become vegan. Some do it out of compassion for animals, others do it for the health benefits, but does veganism clash with their religion? According to Reverend Linzey, veganism does not clash with religion. Furthermore, it is compatible with religion.
For example, dominion over animals actually means we have a moral responsibility to protect the animals. When people say it's okay to hurt animals because humans were given dominion over them, they are completely misunderstanding the biblical meaning of the word 'Dominion'.
This is only one example of the fascinating and vital information we can learn from this important and timeless speech.
