Fox News is reporting on their website that domestic terrorism concerning animal rights activists is on the rise. Where is the State Department? Are they monitoring these people the way they want to monitor right-wing speech? Hey Janet (Napolitano)!!! These are the true domestic terrorists!
I love animals. I truly do. I love my dogs, and I enjoy watching the creatures of the forest out of my kitchen window. I have no desire to see an animal suffer. Michael Vick and his ilk made me sick. Cruelty to animals has no place in this country.
The argument I always make is that God gave man dominion over the animals. We were to use them for food, clothing, and companionship. How many people know that Noah took not only two of each kind of animal on the ark, but seven each of those animals to be used for food? My family and I hunt, and we have taught our children that if they unintentionally wound an animal, they are to quickly dispatch it to prevent suffering. Intentional cruelty, such as dogfighting, is never right.
Does the left realize how many medical breakthroughs have come from animal testing? I bet they don't give it a second thought when their loved ones are receiving a life-saving procedure first tested on animals. I guess they will let that one instance slide for now.
My philosophy is this: If God didn't want us to eat animals, he wouldn't have made them so tasty.
Please pass the potatoes!
