Dorothy Sayers wrote, "It is curious that people who are filled with horrified indignation whenever a cat kills a sparrow can hear that story of the killing of God told Sunday after Sunday and not experience any shock at all." Recently in one community in the mid-South an animal rights activist wrote an indignant letter to the local paper saying no one should suppose that the lives of people were more important than the lives of animals! Is it any wonder then that the death of the Savior is taken so lightly? How nonchalantly we sing "The Old Rugged Cross" or "Jesus Keep Me Near the Cross."
