Any religion that would demand the sacrifice of an animal for the use of its skin is nothing more than a cult. The skin belongs to the animal. Let the animal live and wear it in good health and with pride.

Martin Luther King Jr. is quoted as saying, “Never, never be afraid to do what's right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society's punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way.”
