The many facets of transgenic animals are not addressed by secular or religious voices, and for many reasons; ignorance, absence of public debate, acceleration of the research, and apathy towards animals. There is a need to understand the basic parameters of transgenic animal research. Second, it is important to investigate Christian actual and potential responses, as well as grapple with the strengths and limits. Third, work in transgenic animals comes out of a deprived affective, aesthetic and ethical milieu where there is no rapport with animals as inherent subjects. With new insights from religion and animal studies, it may be possible to transform the prevailing utilitarian view of animals.
