Letter To The Editor Printed - Township Supports Ringling Bros.

Dear Editor:
 
Wayne Township as well as other municipalities and organizations, are planning a trip to the Ringling Bros. Circus as a recreational event.

It should be noted that Ringling is presently in U.S. District Court in Washington D.C. attempting to defend themselves against charges of animal cruelty. The Animal Welfare Institute, ASPCA, Animal Protection Institute as well as an eye witness, Tom Rider, who has seen and heard baby elephants cry in pain from being routinely beaten, are proving that Ringling Bros. elephants have been harmed - specifically beaten with bull hooks to do tricks, and chained almost 24 hours a day. Also, elephants, who are intelligent animals with a social, familial nature, are isolated and lonely throughout their lives. Many are lame, and suffer with arthritis and TB.

As residents of Wayne, we encourage our township to promote cruelty-free events. With so many humane alternatives for entertainment, the Ringling Bros. Circus should be avoided. We particularly owe our children events and learning opportunities that are compassionate and free of animal cruelty.

For more information, please visit www.AWIOnline.org .

Sincerely,
Mary Sepede

God's Creatures Ministry is committed to spreading God's compassion to all He has made based on The Scriptures. Although we are a Christian Ministry, we encourage all to have their own animal welfare committee in their community. We extend our resources to those who would like to learn more or begin their own God's Creatures Ministry as an extension of us. God created us to have a vegetarian diet and commissioned us to protect His animals. Instead, we have exploited them for our entertainment, fashion, appetite and useless, torturous research. These creatures have the right to live as they were created to live. Because we live IN this world, but are not OF this world, we strive to bring God's mercy and justice to all. We live in God's Kingdom now where Jesus, The Sacrificial Lamb, The Prince of Peace, The Lion of Judah reigns. We look forward to that day when all of creation will be 'set free from slavery to corruption and share in the glorious freedom of the children of God' (Romans 8:21) where a little child will lead and guide God's creatures (see Isaiah 11:5-9).
