Michael Vick, Michael Vick, Michael Vick. What are we going to do with you, Michael Vick?

As part of his partnership with the Humane Society’s “End Dogfighting” campaign, Vick visited two Connecticut high schools last week to speak out against animal cruelty.

The Philadelphia Eagles quarterback revealed that prior to his arrest he never considered the well-being of animals — DUH! — and that now he is a changed man.

“I didn’t really care what people felt about animals,” Vick told the students. “I didn’t care about the welfare of animals.”

But then Vick said something that sorta made out eyes roll. Quoth: “I think I’m being used by God,” Vick said, “because all the laws have changed since my incident.”

While it’s true that Vick’s dog fighting case has increased legal restrictions across the country, saying that God is empowering you to teach the world seems a bit….inflated.

Still, we recognize that Vick has the ability to reach a large demographic of young people who may not otherwise be open to such information, and we’re happy to see he’s making good with his commitment to the HSUS. Just next time, Vick, maybe less with the divine pat on the back.
