killing of animals – Lorenzo Snow, 5 May 1893
[President Lorenzo Snow paid] special attention to that part [of the Word of Wisdom] which relates to the use of meat, which he considered just as strong as that which related to the use of liquors and hot drinks. . . .
[President Snow] was convinced that the killing of animals when unnecessary was wrong and sinful, and that it was not right to neglect one part of the Word of Wisdom and be too strenuous in regard to other parts. [in Journal History of the Church, 5 May 1893, pp. 2–3, LDS Archives.]
