This week we purr for the end to the practice of hunting for sport.
One important way we can all encourage the end of this evil is in the role models we put upon our society’s pedestals and allow to flourish. Take for example a woman who is to many a role model who is loved and respected for her “Pro Life” stance: Sarah Palin. Putting aside any consideration of her other opinions and whether we and our families are Republican or Democrat, Mrs. Palin’s views on animals and hunting in my opinion provide all we need to decide she is UNFIT to be admired and we as a society should send her into obscurity at the earliest opportunity.
Sarah Palin, as we know, is proud of her ability to kill animals, bragging about shooting wolves from a helicopter. She exhibits a childhood photo of herself skinning a seal in her recently released book, Going Rogue. Moreover, the following quote has been attributed to that book: “if any vegetarians came over for dinner, I could whip them up a salad, then explain my philosophy on being a carnivore. If God had not intended for us to eat animals, how come He made them out of meat?”
In fact the Bible states humans and animals are equal and mankind has no advantage over the beasts (Eccles. 3:19).
Moreover, as to vegetarianism, Paul said “I will never eat meat any more, for I will not be the cause of my brothers’ downfall.” (1st Cor. 8:13. “The right thing to do is to keep from eating meat, drinking wine or doing anything else that will make other believers fall. (Romans 14:21.)
Her book is also quoted saying: “I love animals....next to the mashed potatoes.”
We may not all be vegetarians, but we should at least respect the life given in exchange for our food.
There are many Republicans who love and respect animals. There are many Democrats who do not. I hope my Republican friends do not feel I attack all Republicans or conservatives by criticizing Mrs. Palin because that is not my reason or my goal. She is mentioned here because she is currently promoting a book with anti-animal rights views.
I hope that whether we are Republican, Democrat, Independent, or any other affiliation that we will insist that our role models are those who exhibit a love of ALL LIFE. Those who respect and have compassion for animals.
