David Clough, Professor of Theological Ethics, at the University of Chester talks to Sarx about his passion for animal theology, Karl Barth and his commitment to a peaceable diet.
Even though I grew up in a family that wasn’t quite typically Chinese (we emigrated to Australia), you cannot help having an enthusiastic attitude to food – something to be enjoyed, with family and friends, should always be over-catered by a factor of three, should require at least two processes of cooking, preferably with vivid sound effects and spectacular visual display.
My parents weren’t lavish in buying expensive food, but they did always try to provide plenty of it – volume and variety. Even when I visit them new, the kitchen is never empty.
I suppose I started to question my eating habits after realising that humans are using the world’s resources at a faster rate than it can supply them for us. If everyone on earth consumed its resources at the level the most affluent nations in the west were, we would need six worlds to sustain us – clearly untenable. This started my interest in ethical living and trying to put it into practice.
