Pope John Paul II taught love for animals .His Holiness proclaimed that "the animals possess a soul and men must love and feel solidarity with our smaller brethren." He went on to say that all animals are "fruit of the creative action of the Holy Spirit and merit respect" and that they are "as near to God as men are."The Holy Father reminded people that all living beings, including animals, came into being because of the "breath" of God.

Pope John Paul II taught love for animals .His Holiness proclaimed that "the animals possess a soul and men must love and feel solidarity with our smaller brethren." He went on to say that all animals are "fruit of the creative action of the Holy Spirit and merit respect" and that they are "as near to God as men are."The Holy Father reminded people that all living beings, including animals, came into being because of the "breath" of God. Animals possess the divine spark of life – the living quality that is the soul – and they are not inferior beings, as factory farmers, fur farmers, and others who exploit animals for profit would have us believe. *Pope Benedict was echoing official church teachings, as laid out in the Catechism of the Catholic Church, which states clearly that "Animals are God’s creatures. He surrounds them with his providential care. By their mere existence they bless him and give him glory. Thus men owe them kindness.

I didn't know that the Holy Father JPII had so stated. Never having pets as a child I came to that awareness later in life. Being of the 'breath' of God explains why they can communicate so well with us, and are companions, rescuers and gift. Horrified that Switzerland allows this.

Years ago I visited Switzerland and thought it was the cleanest most beautiful country in the world. I didn't know anything about this - sadly now I have been informed, I am totally disgusted with the Swiss. I also thought they were sooo civilized - well.............now we know different!

I am also in Switzerland, I actively campaigning for all causes animal, human and environmental, but read here in my own country and in some cantons hidden, it is shameful to read it and I really do necessary to know the truth because there are laws that protect our animals......

Suite à une réaction d'un membre de VFC voilà ma réponse en français : Je suis d'accord avec vous, je suis à 100% végétarienne depuis 1 an.

Suite à une réaction d'un membre de VFC voilà ma réponse en français : Je suis d'accord avec vous, je suis à 100% végétarienne depuis 1 an. Évidemment, il ya des fermes qui élèvent des animaux destinés à l'abattage, nous ne pouvons malheureusement pas retirer tout sur cette terre, mais nous pouvons améliorer les conditions de ces animaux destinés à l'abattage, car ici, en Suisse, il existe des lois et des contrôles .. Mais en lisant que les agriculteurs prennent leurs propres chiens et les chats me fait honte parce qu'ils sont des animaux domestiques. Je ne peux pas imaginer avoir un bol de ragoût de chat ou de chien. Mais pour moi, le problème est résolu parce que je ne mange pas de viande.

Je suis choqué de lire que dans mon pays et dans les cantons de Suisse créateurs peuvent manger comme les Chinois de nos 4-pattes des chats et des chiens compagnons, je n'avais jamais entendu parler, mais je vais faire une recherche à partir du journal qui l'a publié....
