A press report which was reproduced in The Vegetarian News (March 1936) where the editor remarked, "... it seems, two things may rightly be inferred: the first that, even in ecclesiastical circles, the time when 'they shall not hurt nor destroy' has not yet fully (but only locally) come to pass; the second that a slaughter-house is a place which, in its very nature, is quite incapable of being consecrated."

'Christmas Contrasts'

From The Animals' Champion (October - December 1963)

Wednesday, 12 December 2012

Quotation: 'The Vegetarian News' (Editorial: December 1921)

"With the advent of the Christmas season comes the annual festival of slaughter of those whom we are pleased to call the "animals," and we have to lament once more that the customary proclamation of "Peace on earth and good will towards men" should be coincident with a holocaust of cruelty towards the members of the sentient creation whose only crime is that they are weaker than ourselves."
