English Discussion Group - Animals as pets and commodies Takkahuone

Most of us are at least fond of animals. We have pets and feel as if they were part of our families. On the other hand, animals are commodies to us.

We grow them in fields and “factories” and use them as food. From that point of view they are not part of our family. They are more like resources. Is there a contradiction here? How can we use sentient beings in such different ways?

Discussion on our animal friends is led by dr Tiia Sahrakorpi and pastor Kari Kuula
