Retreating Rather Than Advancing – 17 March 2008
The efforts of States to encourage their residents to hunt are an
obvious step backward. It doesn’t matter what ploys they use, be it
nostalgia, “tradition,” “enjoying nature,” et cetera; the bottom line
that motivates these States is just that – the bottom line.
Isn’t it ironic that some public officials, who should know better,
are willing to risk human lives by pushing for more killing of nonhumans
for fun by children and women? And for what? To increase their revenues.
This is not only cynical and shortsighted – it is just plain evil,
especially since the recent highly publicized shootings of college
students. When people learn to kill any living being it destroys their
empathy and turns them into sociopaths.
When you think about it, isn’t it irrational to claim that you have
to go out with gun in hand to “enjoy nature”?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful. At the
same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the
world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true
peace and compassion.
