Redemption and Michael Vick
People have been talking alot about disgraced ex-NFL quarterback Michael Vick these days.
He is the subject of some interesting commentary featured in an e-newsletter from the Humane Society of the United States that popped up in my e-mail today.
I have been listening to talk radio all week and folks are sharing their opinions about whether Vick should be allowed to become an NFL player again since his dog fighting conviction. Vick spent 18 months in Leavenworth Federal Prison and people are wondering if they’ll see him throwing the pigskin at a NFL game in the future.
The Humane Society’s e-newsletter, called “The Humane Steward: Faith in Action for Animals,” is a monthly mix of interesting articles and commentary about the faithful’s call to care for animals. This month’s e-newsletter discusses Vick’s offer to help with the society’s anti-dogfighting campaign. It also includes some narrative about stories of redemption in the Bible and society CEO Wayne Pacelle (pictured below) talks about his recent decisions regarding Vick.
“He’s served his sentence, and now he’s made a personal appeal to The HSUS to involve him in anti-dogfighting and anti-cruelty efforts. Will we continue to flog Michael Vick indefinitely, or will we take advantage of his expressed desire to do better, to be an agent of change for animals?,” Pacelle wrote.
