Yesterday I drove up to USU in Logan to do my Mormons for Animals presentation as part of the Food Day portion of their Earth Week.
It went well. For some reason it took 2 hours and 40 minutes to get there, but only 2 hours to get back. This was a good thing because I got back just in time to teach my ethics class (also on Animal Ethics).
My favorite part (besides the vegan lunch they bought me) was the slide with one of the most famous mormon scriptures:
"When you are in the service of your fellow beings you are only in the service of your God."
I think the converse applies as well: If you act in the disservice of your fellow beings then you act in the disservice of your God. We have a moral duty of kindness towards all beings on this earth.
Thanks to all those who went. I am resolved to do better about posting to this blog! You'll hear from me more soon.
