Quotation: Rev. Victor Allen Callow (1935)

"These two principles of mercy and sacrifice are in perpetual conflict. Shall I suffer or shall I let another suffer for me? I believe that I have no moral right to ask another to do for me what I am not prepared to do for myself. If I do not think it right to kill animals for food neither is it right for me to condemn another man to a trade which I consider demoralising." From a transcript of the Vegetarian Society's annual Church Service published in The Vegetarian Messenger and Health Review (November 1935). Sermon conducted by a latter Minister of the Bible Christian Church of Salford.
