To the Editor:

Re: May 15, 2004 Impact this week, page 6: “In Next Week’s Daily Mail …” Women in Rodeos

In our opinion, rodeos are just another form of animal abuse and exploitation. We believe the “passion” these women feel for this “tradition” is simply an addiction to violence.

Barbarism clothed in nostalgia and words like “tradition” is still barbarism. Let’s stop trying to hide the truth.

Rightly does Proverbs 12:10 state:

“A righteous man [woman] has regard for the life of his beast,
But the compassion of the wicked is cruel.”

In closing, David Starr Jordan, M.D. said, “Be a life long or short, its completeness depends on what it was lived for.” Is living for the harassment of God’s creatures a complete life?
