    Some people seem to feel that wearing fur or leather is dealing in animal cruelty.
    I have a fur jacket that I love and some leather shoes and jacket....When I'm out purchasing these things I don't think about how these merchandise came to be.
    Also, people have been killing animal for eons for clothing, bedding, tools, food, etc.
    So I never really fully grasped the concept of animal cruelty. Even though watching the process of extracting the fur or leather from these animals is quite sad.

    So I'm with you Bro $$RICH$$ on being in between

    Yes sis i don't think many really look at those facts just the fashion
    everything in life pays a price to something these items happen to
    take from animals in a cruel way.......but the fashion of it is outstanding

    I came this close to sending $25 to sponser Lindsey.....OK, not really.

    Leather....hmmm, well that would mean we would have to give up hamburgers & Steaks. Not gonna do it, wouldn't be prudent.

    Leather and fur have been used since Genesis 3:21

    Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them

    Of course, God didn't cage the animals up all their lives and treat them badly before killing them.

    I was gonna say George, but I choose the female animal to "almost sponsor" rather than the male animal....either way, Did you not catch that scrolling across the screen, tugging at your heart strings to send "Just $25 per month" to sponsor those animals?
