A Quote by Rev. Andrew Linzey on vegetarianism

Animals are God's creatures, not human property, nor utilities, nor resources, nor commodities, but precious beings in God's sight. …Christians whose eyes are fixed on the awfulness of crucifixion are in a special position to understand the awfulness of innocent suffering. The Cross of Christ is God's absolute identification with the weak, the powerless, and the vulnerable, but most of all with unprotected, undefended, innocent suffering.

A Quote by Andrew Linzey on animals, facts, life, opportunity, and people

It is an unfortunate fact that those people who are most eloquent in their demand for the conservation of animals are often those most eager to violate animal life at the first opportunity.

A Quote by Andrew Linzey on beauty, creation, creativity, education, intuition, laws, obedience, understanding, virtue, and worth

Moral education, as I understand it, is not about inculcating obedience to law or cultivating self-virtue, it is rather about finding within us an ever-increasing sense of the worth of creation. It is about how we can develop and deepen our intuitive sense of beauty and creativity.

A Quote by Andrew Linzey on animals, ecology, minorities, responsibility, society, and world

Despite one or two minority appeals our society is not outraged at man's unremitting use of the animal world. Ecologists and environmentalists may talk of "ecological consciousness" or "environmental responsibility" but seldom, if ever, is this responsibility articulated towards other non-human species in particular.
