"SCLM Task Force - Animal Rites Group
(Subcommittee of the Standing Commission on Liturgy and Music)"
The only document on-line on that page has an agenda from July 2010 that says nothing about animal rites.
Animal "Rites" is also used on the SCLM page (here).
A comment on the SCLM webblog also references this mandate,
"My 'angst' stems not just from the magnitude of HWHM considerations, but from list of OTHER projects the SCLM is charged to produce: Hymnal Revision, Same-sex rites, and (close to my heart, both theologically and zoologically) animal rites with accompanying theological/pastoral considerations! (Who knows what else? I don’t!)"What else? How about this,
Has this church gone to the dogs?
