Fact of the Day: Mother Cow

Since cows are considered sacred in Hinduism, most Hindus believe that a cow should be shown the same respect that one would show to their own mother.

Respect for animals, treat them well, yes, but the same as shown to your Mother seems a bit extreme. :)

When I was younger, I used to wonder why I would see cows just wandering around when I saw pics of some towns in India.

Totally agree. But what do you expect from people who support guns a la the old wild west and voting for the world's most dangerous "man" ( or should that be demented ape ?) for their leader.
