Greatness and moral progress

05May10

The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.
— Mohandas (Mahatma) Gandhi

I got an email today from the Humane Society that left me absolutely speechless:

The U.S. Supreme Court recently overturned a federal anti-cruelty law banning the commercial sale of animal “crush” videos—where women in high-heeled shoes impale and torture small animals for the … titillation of viewers. Now, we urgently need Congress to pass a new bill (H.R. 5092) to stop these grotesque crush videos from resurfacing.

I can’t imagine what kind of monster would derive satisfaction from such cruelty. But I hope hundreds of thousands of Americans speak up and tell their representatives that this inhumanity won’t be tolerated.

Want to help build a greater nation? Want to stand up for moral progress? Please consider making your voice heard.
