Lawyer and award-winning author Wesley J. Smith is a Senior Fellow at the Discovery Institute’s Center on Human Exceptionalism and the author of The War on Humans. He is also a legal consultant to the Patients Rights Council and a special consultant for the Center for Bioethics and Culture. He joins Fr. Chris to talk about humankind’s responsibility, as God’s appointed stewards of creation, to care for animals.

Questions include:
* What is humankind’s responsibility to animals?
* In developed countries, some pets are actually treated like babies, while the animals that we eat are truly abused in many cases. What does that say about our culture?
* What do both of these extremes say about our relationship with God, and also with our fellow human beings?
* What is the path to a more balanced and Christian approach to the way we treat animals?

We’ll also hear from author Leslie Leyland Fields concerning her book, Forgiving Our Fathers and Mothers: Finding Freedom from Hurt and Hate.
