The Animal Rights cause appears to be presently dominated by a view that human beings involvement with animals is morally wrong, other than on a level of what, photography? The problem this creates for me and I imagine others is how to pursue actually achievable reforms where necessary or desirable (e.g eating less meat, as opposed necessarily to none; support small scale farming, as opposed to factory practices); legal remedies in cases of actual abuse (e.g. regulate against abuse of, say, carriage horses, as opposed to banning the activity entirely) without being painted with an "Animal Rights" brush that in some cases, lacks credibility.
So, yes I believe in God, but before running with that admission in either extreme direction, a dialogue is in order to ensure we understand each other.
It seems serious dialogue is also needed on the precise meaning and definition of Animal Rights.
