All God's creatures have rights, it doesn't matter if they are human, animals, plants or insects. Mankind was given dominion over all, but that does not mean that he (mankind) can use the natural resources of our planet without regard, compassion or forethought; which is exactly what we have done for thousands of years; and now we are paying the price. Through extinction of numerous species of animals and plants we have changed our world. We can hope that it's not too late to salvage. With global warming, war, pestilence, famine and disease rampant we need to stop, look at what we are doing and what we have done, then institute changes for the better. We need to restore our planet and learn to appreciate the gifts that God gave us. We should strive to be "wise stewards" and learn to appreciate and tolerate each other and all of God's creations. Remember these things in your prayers and God bless you all!
