God's Hunters?
Comments by Donna Fazio - 30 Jan 2010

In Reference to the Article: God's Hunters?

It is unfortunate that these priests satisfy their lust to kill under the guise of 'doing God's work'. Hunting is all about power - pure and simple. One could admire an animal's beauty without having to see its blood pour out and its life destroyed. These priests obviously have no respect for the teachings of St. Francis who wrote:

"Not to hurt our humble animals is our first duty to them, but to stop there is not enough. We have a higher mission- to be of service to them whenever they require it. If you have men who will exclude any of God’s creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men."

Hence, as a Catholic, I personally have NO respect for these priests and their hypocritical ways.

This just proves that anyone could write a book. However, only those who have something valuable to say are worthy of having their books read. Time is much better spent on reading the writings of Albert Schweitzer or the like.
