INFORMATION

Don't let them get away with ignoring this issue.

Bullfighting and similar cruel festivals bring the Catholic Church into disrepute because:

  • it is practised in Catholic countries like Spain and Mexico, where it is promoted, enacted and watched by Catholics;
  • it is staged to celebrate feast days of the Virgin Mary and other saints. In the bullfighting countries and in other countries such as Brazil, Panama, Nicaragua, thousands of fiestas take place in which bulls and other animals are abused and/or killed in the name of a patron saint under the blessing of a local priest;
  • priests and bishops turn a blind eye to the business, or may benefit from funds raised, or may help promote the abuses;
  • the Church has influence in these countries, and therefore has a duty to do all she can to oppose such horrific cruelty.

Thank you for everything you do for animals!
