 Dear ???: [the original letter was unsigned]

Thank you very much for your comments.

You bring up some very interesting points.

If in the present state of this world lions hunt for food, how does that relate to humans hunting lions, since we have all kinds of plants foods to eat, and we can choose to kill or not to kill? Isn't there is difference?

Isn't the human violent nature the root cause of our choosing war as a solution to our problems? If we work at becoming peaceful beings, which we are capable of being, wouldn't we then seek alternatives to war?

Isn't the violence inflicted upon food animals part of the same root cause?

These are the points we're trying to make on our web site. Violence of any kind only produces more violence. Little Tike was a lion who was raised as a vegetarian. He shunned flesh and thought it was disgusting. Violence is a learned trait. It can also be unlearned.

We would like to publish your comments, but would like to have your name to go with it.

We look forward to hearing from you.

In the Love of the Lord,
