    I'm not only ok with it, I already do it. So what?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Assuming this is true, I find the concept of giving corporations human rights to be questionable. To me, neither animals nor corporations should have human rights because they are not human.

    I wasn't suggesting that we should be giving them rights. I was challenging the conjecture that dogs and cats can't grasp the concept of loss. Of course, you can throw out ridiculous strawmen that have nothing to do with what I said all day long, if that's what gets you off.

    What kind of a stupid question is that? Of course I would be OK with it, they are animals NOT human. This does not mean they need be abused.

    Spud, you neglected to leave an option for "None", so I chose "Rat".

    I have no idea what planet this statement came from, but it was not earth.

    It has nothing to do with my statement.

    None on this list. But furbabies should maybe me? I guess you could include rats or anything you can keep as pets? If you can get some form of med. ins. for them why should you not get a tax break for them? Most people consider their pets part of the family

    OK. They should not be considered like real humans but it is something to think about
