What do religions say about animals? Do they belive in some religion also or are they just created to be slayed and do nothing but running around? Anyone know anything about it? And in that case please tell the religion that tell that and that.

I believe every major religion has many good things to say about how we as humans should be stewards & custodians to care for, protect & help our animal friends & companions. They were never ever intended for us to kill. We have no right to do this at all! Instead, the holy scriptures - or most of them - have been tampered with & misinterpreted over a long period of time to try to justify all the senseless slaughter of wonderful, beautiful, intelligent & useful creatures that have been entrusted into our benevolent care. In addition, the Christian Church believes that animals have no souls! I guess they are progressing very, very slowly, as it was only about a few hundred years ago that they admitted finally that women do indeed have souls! I am not sure whether animals believe in any religion as we know it, but they can be justifiably forgiven if they do not believe in any of ours!!!
