GRAPEVINE — Animal advocates are dismayed by a controversial program initiated this weekend by Fellowship Church in Grapevine, which used live animals during religious services.Called "Wild," the program involved Pastor Ed Young's use of a lion in a cage and his clutching a lamb to "communicate biblical truths."A photo posted on the church's Facebook page of its Easter service showed Young preaching on stage to an assembly outdoors, holding a clinging lamb while standing next to the caged lion. The caption reads: "Pastor Ed bringing the message of Easter. Jesus is a lion-like lamb and a lamb-like lion!"While many in the congregation were unfazed by the proximity of the animals, others questioned their use as props in a sermon and posted comments expressing their distaste.
