#157 | Don Price | Acknowledge Animals

Submission 157
Don Price
The Boulder Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (Lafayette, CO) 2616 and the UU Animal Ministry

What is your suggestion or idea?

After the current sentence: We covenant to cherish Earth and all beings by creating relationships of care and respect. ADD the following sentence: We acknowledge that animals are slaughtered and often forced to endure terrible pain and inhumane treatment mostly because people enjoy eating them.

What is the reason for your amendment idea?

We use too much gobbledygook; words that can mean anything the reader wants them to mean. We need to explicitly state that there’s a big problem for the OVERWHELMING number of animals on the planet.

Have you discussed this idea with your congregation or other UUs?
