Take Heart!

The Greatest Disconnect

In his new book, "Some We Love, Some We Hate, Some We Eat," Hal Herzog tries to grasp the great paradox of the majority of people who are enraged at the cruelty toward pets but eat their chicken or steak without any guilt. In this interview, Herzog answers questions from: Why did people got so upset with "cat bin lady" and "puppy throwing girl"? to Is there a link between animal abuse and later human abuse?

The huge disconnection between our daily behaviors and ethics goes unnoticed to most people. They love their dogs but they also love eating chicken wings. The worst part of it is that they don’t see the disconnection, since on their minds theirs is perfect rationalization of their acts. However, as followers of Jesus Christ, we are enlightened by God's wisdom and love imbedded in us, which we are called to reflect onto all Creation.
