Event description

Description

Professor David Clough will present a paper entitled: 'Eating Peaceably: Christianity and Veganism’

This paper will argue that killing animals for food has never been a comfortable fit with Christian faith, which affirms God’s will for peace between creatures. Since most humans now no longer need to kill to eat; since the ways we now raise animals are bad for humans and the planet, as well as for farmed and wild animals; and since we now know very much more about the complex cognition and social lives of other animals, Christians with others have good reason to eat more peaceably by moving to a plant-based diet.


David Clough is Professor of Theological Ethics at the University of Chester. He is the President of the Society for the Study of Christian Ethics and Co-Chair of the Animals and Religion Group of the American Academy of Religion. David’s current work is concerned with the place of animals in Christian theology and ethics. In 2015, David launched his CreatureKind Project www.becreaturekind.org with the aim of engaging churches in the UK and North America with farmed animal welfare as a faith issue.
