Most Janis drink milk however I see how dairy cows and cows in gerneral are treated and I wonder if it's ethical. I mean no cow has to die for us to have milk but the milk industry kills baby cows and forcibly impregnated cows. What do you think does drinking milk knowing how the meat industry works makes someone morally liable for the death of cows?

+2_God's Love for Man_ "Such is the character of Christ as revealed in His life. This is the character of God. It is from the Father's heart that the streams of divine compassion, manifest in Christ, flow out to the children of men. Jesus, the tender, pitying Savior, was 'God manifest ini the flesh' (1Timothy 3:16). It was to redeem us that Jesus lived and suffered and died. He became a "Man of Sorrows," that we might be made partakers of everlasting joy. God permitted His beloved Son, full of grace and truth, to come from a world of indescribable glory, to a world marred and blighted with sin, darkened with the shadow of death and the curse." More
-1"God's Love for Man" Nature and revelation alike testify of God's love. Our Father in heaven is the source of life, of wisdom and of joy. Look at the wonderful and beautiful things of nature. Think of their marvelous adaptation to the needs and happiness, not only of man, but of all living creatures. The sunshine and the rain, that gladden and...[Show All] refresh the earth, the hills and the seas and plains, all speak to us of the Creator's love. It is God who supplies the daily needs of all His creatures. In the beautiful words of the psalmist: "The eyes of all that wait upon Thee; and Thou givest them their meat [or food] in due season. Thou openest thine hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing." Psalm 145:15-16. God made man perfectly holy and happy; and the fair earth, as it came from the Creator's hand, bore no blight of decay or shadow of the curse. It is transgression of God's law - the law of love - that has brought woe and death.Yet even amid the suffering the results from sin, God's love is revealed. It is written that God cursed the ground for man's sake (Genesis 3:17). The thorn and the thistle - the difficulties and trials that make his life one of toil and care - were appointed for his good as a part of the training needful in God's plan for his uplifting from the ruin and degradation of that sin has wrought. The world, though fallen, is not all sorrow and misery. In nature itself are messages of hope and comfort. There are flowers upon thistles, and the thorns are covered with roses. "God is love" is written upon every opening bud, upon every spire of springing grass. The lovely birds making the air vocal with their happy songs, the delicately tinted flowers in their perfection perfuming the air, the lofty trees of the forest with their rich foliage of living green - all testify to the tender, fatherly care of our God and to His desire to make His children happy. The Word of God reveals His character. He Himself has declared His infinite love and pity. When Moses prayed, "Show me Thy glory," the Lord answered, "I will make all My goodness pass before thee" (Exodus 33:18-19). This is His glory. The Lord passed before Moses, and proclaimed, "The Lord, the Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth, keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin." Exodus 34:6-7. He is "slow to anger, and of great kindness" (Jonah 4:2) "because He delighteth in mercy" (Micah 7:18) (to be cont'd...) [Show Less] More
+2I hate when people say "There's always someone worse off" as if that makes anything better. "great maybe they can help stop the horrible death wish generating burning sensation in my intestines I get when I eat too fast with a lecture!"
There has been an attempt to interfere with the burial or cremation of the infamous serial killer Ian Brady. Family of Brady's victims are demanding to know what's happening to his ashes. Ian Brady is infamous, but his family are not infamous. Should Ian Brady's family not be permitted to deal with the after death ceremony in private like any other family or should they be treated like criminals along with Ian Brady? What do you think?
