Because it has a bearing on our culture which is very important. Not as a
matter to divide us, but in order to celebrate our diversity and to
appreciate our distinctiveness. Human behaviour has used it as an excuse
for genocide and extinction. If it was not us, or we could not use them,
they died. That was `de rigeur' of our past behaviour.
We are all of God's creature, great and small, no matter what other people
would have you believe.
Imagination is the eye of the soul.
