In Reference to: THE LION WHO LAY DOWN WITH THE LAMB
Dear Carole Baskin and Friends,
Though I am a supporter of Big Cats Rescue who greatly admires your dedication to your mission of saving these glorious animals, I have an increasingly hard time with the long-held theory that cats are carnivores.
I can't accept that this is what our Maker intended any of His loved creatures to be: killers of one another. In fact, I firmly believe it is human violence, arising from the debased belief that man is born to be a carnivorous predator, that has erroneously influenced the animal world, over which man has been given dominion (stewardship).
This idea probably seems far-fetched to those of you at Big Cat Rescue, and impossible to implement (at least at this time).
But since human thought does evolve, if gradually, would you do me the honor of reading this little article (below)
and forwarding it to the rest of your staff and perhaps your volunteers? In fact, you might even consider it worthy of contemplation by all of your supporters around the world!
Imbibing the spirit of this piece helps us all be a little less beholden to physical laws (called laws of nature), and a little more spiritually minded -- that is, open to higher truths about creation.
If we all have one Parent, and that Parent is Love, then surely Love doesn't allow any of Her pure and perfect creations -- all members of the same beloved family -- to hurt one another or to be harmed in any way!
Bless you all,
