Moo-ving people toward compassionate living
From Antonio de Costello - 17 Sep 2004
you have to understand that this sport id our tradition. i have trained for years and fought with the toughest bulls to be where i am today. me and my fellow matadors in the ring are very brave and we show this by fullfighting, this is why so many of our fans respect us. we are very brave as this 500 pound bull can kill us easily if we go wrong in the ring and this is again a sign of our bravery to keep our tradition. can i ask have you ever seen bullfighting?

There are many evils in the world that people have come to follow as a tradition. Human slavery is a perfect example, and as society matured, it did away with such things.
We know that you and your fellow matadors trained long and hard, but you did it at the expense of other living beings who were forced to participate and die. In essence you are making war on the bulls, enslaving them, and killing them. Can't you see that such activity is morally wrong and against the teachings of Jesus Christ?
We have never seen a live bullfight, but have seen several on videos and films. We derive no pleasure from blood lust.
In the Love of the Lord,
