Do not mistake indifference for cruelty.
Kindness to animals and to all living things is one good way of expressing true religion. Cruelty to the dumb creation always shows an absence of the true religious spirit; and in most cases, is simply barbarous.Author: Joseph F. Smith, Source: Juvenile Instructor 50 [June 1915]: 375
He who treats in a brutal manner a poor, dumb animal at that moment disqualifies himself for the companionship of the Holy Spirit; for the Lord will not sanction an unrighteous act, and it is an unrighteous thing to treat any creature cruelly.Author: Joseph F. Smith, Source: Juvenile Instructor 47 [February 1912]: 79
The dominion the Lord gave man over the brute creation has been, to a very large extent, used selfishly, thoughtlessly, cruelly.Author: Joseph F. Smith, Source: Juvenile Instructor 47 [February 1912]: 78
