Mr. Clifford Andrew King III says that God has given man dominion over the animals [“Eating Meat Is a Personal Choice,” Oct. 12, Xpress].
My understanding of this biblical statement is that humans are to take care of the planet we live on, as well as our fellow humans and other animals.
The vast numbers of animals that are raised for killing and eating are not in accord with this.
It is an inhumane practice that is associated with the production of a large fraction (18 percent) of human-associated greenhouse-gas production and encourages the ingestion of unnecessarily large amounts of animal foods.
