Baldwin wants Pope to help save animals.


Alec Baldwin has written the Pope, asking him to take a cue from St. Francis of Assisi and show a little more interest in the rights of animals.

The “Cat in the Hat” star is suggesting the Pontiff condemn the way animals are raised and killed by the meat industry.

“I am writing to ask that you exercise your moral authority in a clear statement of condemnation of present factory-farming methods,” Baldwin wrote to the Pope in a letter dated December 12. “Your words would do a world of good for God's animals, who are suffering so horribly on factory farms and in slaughterhouses.”

Baldwin helpfully sent along a video he had narrated for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, about the meat industry called “Meet Your Meat.”

Hey Alec, go away and die, would ya?

Animals don't have souls. God put us in charge of animals, so they are our responsibility, not Gods. This means we can eat them and use them anyway we see fit. It also meands that we have a certain responsibility to treat them as the decent creatures of God they are. Vegetation is the same way. SGtar15

As long as you don't eat meat on a Friday, I doubt the Pope cares. Av.
