Traditions of Treachery – 3 August 2008

The exploitation of non-human animals by humans has a common basis: trickery – in other words: dishonesty or deception.

Think about how the very popular “sport” of “fishing” uses the cruel tricking of sentient beings by dangling hooks on which other living creatures – “night crawlers” (aka earthworms) – are impaled, or by the use of other lures! By the way, it seems as though you can’t find a gas station around here that doesn’t sell “night crawlers” as a sideline.

This sociopathic world is so addicted to fish-killing, trapping, shooting, etc. that the vast majority – most of whom consider themselves “good” people – fail to recognize these activities for what they are: evil trickery that really glorifies Satan, the father of lies and deception. To paraphrase Isaiah 28:15 –They have made falsehood their refuge and have concealed themselves with deception.

So these traditions of treachery are passed on from generation to generation; but “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap.” (Galatians 6:7)

"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.
