Statements like the one the Pope made about pets are selfish. Not only to people and animals, since such statements are disrepectful of choices, but also to the earth - the earth's population is already straining our resources. He did not factor in that many who chose to share their love with another species often do so out of a very conscious decision to help build a better future. I suspect that he made the statement thinking that it was a "safe" stance that no one would take offense at. I hope there is sufficient outcry to prove that wrong. He also overlooks the fact that animals' love has very often proved the salvation of wounded humans.
