When PETA heard that the Committee on Bible Translation had revised the New International Version (NIV) of the Christian Bible to use gender-inclusive language, such as replacing "men" with "people," we thought, wouldn't it be great if the new NIV showed consideration for female (and male) animals too? So we wrote to the Committee on Bible Translation and asked them to use "he" or "she" rather than "it" to refer to animals in the next edition of the NIV.
"Language matters. Calling an animal 'it' denies them something," PETA Vice President Bruce Friedrich told CNN. "They are beloved by God. They glorify God."
Since God loves all His creation (and if you're not convinced of this, try reading Matthew 25:40, Isaiah 11:9, or Luke 6:36), it's only fitting that humans do the same by showing respect to every living being. Maybe Psalm 50:11 says it best: "I know and am acquainted with all the birds of the mountains, and the wild animals of the field are Mine and are with Me, in My mind." Perhaps if we change the way we speak about animals, our thinking will follow.

So you animal worshipers think it's okay for humans to kill each other. God gave man a name, His name was Adam. He never gave human names to animals. Take the male and female human genders away, call them as "it", and apply them to animals, you are committing a sin.
Animals are to serve humankind, not humankind to serve animals. If you agree to PETA's altering God's Word, you are on a path of destruction.
Revelation 22:18-19 "If anyone adds unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book. And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book."
This is a warning for animal rights activists who supports changing God's word.
Keep your hands off God's Word.
No one cannot serve two masters. You can't worship God or animals at the same time. Eating animals don't count.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
