Some people are just out beyond Pluto…the planet. Not the cartoon dog.
A debate is ensuing at the Brantford Expositor between hunters and people opposed to hunting.
The opposors are pretty much using the standard “tugging on heart strings” bleating. I don’t know what’s more infuriating, the bleating garbage or the lack of/ignoring of reality.
Obviously you can tell where I am on the “debate”. Not sure? Click HERE
I’m not going to repeat myself.
What I find somewhat amusing is when some people pull the moral superiority and bring God into it.
OK. I’m game sweety.
I’m not a church-goer. Doesn’t mean I wasn’t brought up with some exposure and don’t have my personal beliefs.
“…What explanation can you possibly offer to justify killing any of God’s creatures? Who gave you the right to decide what lives or dies? To paraphrase one of my favourite Christmas movies: It may well be that in the sight of Heaven you are more worthless and less fit to live than millions like these poor creatures. …”
(Good News Bible)
All the animals, birds and fish will live in fear of you. They are all placed under your power.
Now you can eat them, as well as green plants; I give them all to you for food.
The slothful man roasteth not that which he took in huntin: but the substance of a diligent man is precious.
You want to pull God into this? You better have the handbook.
Here’s a little “tradition” that existed within the Catholic Church. Looks like the Catholic Church sanctioned the consumption of meat. Meatless Fridays
“…Explicit mention is made of the practice of abstaining from fleshmeat on Fridays in a document from the end of the first century A.D., the “Didache of the Apostles,” as well as by St. Clement of Alexandria and Tertullian in the third century. The perpetual tradition of the Church is clear beyond possibility of mistake on this matter…”
Looks like meat was consumed on the other days. Whether from the wild or the farmyard, it was hunted for dinner.
And here’s a little something to make your head explode or implode from the apparent vacuum. I’m applying your logic.
You better go through the rest of your life without swatting so much as a mosquito. You will be killing one of God’s creatures.
You better ditch your anti-bacterial spray. You will be killing one of God’s creatures.
Better skip that bath too. Killing one of God’s little germs is bad.
You might want to skip that bowl of greens. Yep. Another one of God’s creations died to be in that bowl.
No medecines either if you get the sniffles. Yep. Germs again. One of God’s creatures.
While you’re starving to live up to your hypocritical standard that you want to impose on others? Don’t think about suicide to end your suffering.
Mortal sin. God will be angry with you.
ADDED: a comment from a forum.
“…Every time I hear or read this term it drives me up the wall.
Seriously – is basic biology not taught anymore? Any animal that’s hunted is a complex organism, and there’s no such thing as a defenceless complex organism in the wild.
If deer, rabbits, squirrels, etc. were defenceless you wouldn’t have to hunt them! They’d just walk up to your barbecue and kill themselves or come out of the woods waving a white flag.
It’s bad enough that so many people in a country like Canada don’t know a thing about hunting, but it’s even worse that the same people also don’t seem to know a thing about how the natural world actually functions. …”
Someone was kind enough to bring this link to my attention as well :
Going a wee bit outside the box here. Hunting is condoned according to Judeo-Christian beliefs.
If someone wants to attack something that is part of a person’s religious beliefs…
Isn’t that discrimination?
The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms:
2. Everyone has the following fundamental freedoms:
- a) freedom of conscience and religion;
