A Holiday Thought...

Aren't humans amazing? They kill wildlife - birds, deer, all kinds of cats, coyotes, beavers, groundhogs, mice and foxes by the million in order to protect their domestic animals and their feed.

Then they kill domestic animals by the billion and eat them. This in turn kills people by the million, because eating all those animals leads to degenerative - and fatal - health conditions like heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, and cancer.

So then humans spend billions of dollars torturing and killing millions more animals to look for cures for these diseases.

Elsewhere, millions of other human beings are being killed by hunger and malnutrition because food they could eat is being used to fatten domestic animals.

Meanwhile, few people recognize the absurdity of humans, who kill so easily and violently, and once a year send out cards praying for "Peace on Earth."

Yes, it is fine to quote the Bible from the beginning when there was innocence. If you read on you will find the story of Cain and Able and how one brother murders the other over their sacrifice. The murderer is a vegan! Christ comes later on earth and his coming helps eliminate animal sacrifice which is very compassionate and humane. He becomes the sacrifice. Some people can't bear to think of the cross and the blood. But it is more realistic to our times. I am a vegetarian,not a vegan. I work mostly unpaid for animal rights, am considered an animal rights activist by most environmental groups. PETA sends me mailing stickers. I am not a perfect person, I read Diet for A Small Planet in the 1970 and Food, Inc in 2010. I have advocated and helped train people in the interest of climate change to alter their food habits to vegetarian. My pet is a rescue cat. I have an online business since 1993 that promotes the California National Marine Life Sanctuaries and the wildlife therein. I don't own a car.
This is all I can do now. To blame a peacekeeper (Jesus) who changed in ways more profound than anyone the religious practices of major religions, for all the ugly distruction going on in the animal kingdom is ignorant. You anonymous, picked the wrong Christian to vent on for Christmas.
