Statement from PETA Director of Christian Outreach and Engagement Sarah King:
PETA Christian is deeply touched and encouraged that Pope Francis has acknowledged that other species are called along with human beings into eternal life with Christ. We hope that this papal announcement will encourage all followers of Jesus to remember that although their afterlife will be paradise, animals raised and killed for food endure hell on Earth and also to rethink our duty of merciful stewardship and realize that the most loving thing that we can do toward God’s creatures is not to eat them.
