Fanatic – 8 December 2006

“Fanatic: marked by excessive enthusiasm and often intense uncritical devotion (they’re ~ about politics)” – that’s Webster’s definition of the word opponents often use to describe animal advocates.

Perhaps those opponents should take a good, honest look at themselves and figure out why they are so “fanatic” about supporting the incessant, round the clock massacre of sentient beings who feel physical and emotional pain. Yes – that’s exactly what those who buy animal products are doing: paying to have someone else do the horrific dirty work.

If anyone can be described as “fanatic” in a negative sense it is those who kill or have others kill for them to satisfy an appetite for cruelty (a warped sense of “fun”) or for the products of cruelty. Hopefully, some will wake up to the reality of what they are doing (as we did) and become “fanatics” for positive change.

What the world sorely needs are more “peaceful fanatics” who advocate for those who cannot speak for themselves. God’s ideals of “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control” (Galatians 5:22-23) are meant for all of His creation.

"Joyful Curmudgeon"
An oxymoron?
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.
