The title of this article is a quote said by Rush Limbaugh--and he is spot on target!
The recent reports this past week claiming that Atlanta Falcons QB, Michael Vick, has allegedly been sponsoring "dog fights" at a property he owned, has sparked outrage, scorn, and disbelief from many in the Atlanta area and around the country.
I do understand being outraged at the unnecessary inhumane treatment of household pets. The video clips that have been broadcasted have been troubling and painful to watch. IMHO, the dogfights are not the most disturbing aspect; but, the needless hanging and electrocution of the "loser" dogs. If injuries dictate, why not put them down in a humane fashion?
But I have also been disturbed at the level of attention this has garnered in comparison to the loss of real human life though. The sixth commandment applies only to God's creatures made in His image: to people (Gen. 1:26-31). It does not apply to dogs.
"Elvis lives and God is dead."
We live in a society that loves to plant trees,
but is swift to uproot marriages.
And we live in a world that will exhaust no expense
by bringing nations together to save a few dying whales,
but is quick to kill unborn children.
For the record, I am a dog owner; have had many dogs throughout my life. Right now I have a black labradoodle (Murphy) and a brown/red haired pit-bull/boxer mix (Precious). Both dogs are extremely smart. lovable, full of life, and gentle. My children and I really like these dogs greatly and they are a part of our family. BUT, let me remind you of something... they are just dogs--they are not people (repeat it out loud with me three times). "They are just dogs; they are not people." Our dogs have always enjoyed tremendous affection and are well cared for. BUT, they are not people. If one of them unfortunately died tomorrow by accidently getting hit by a car or some other tragedy, it would be sad for us all. BUT, we would get another one and move on easily... Why? "They are just dogs; they are not people."
Calling Good Evil and Evil Good
I have lost three family members in my life (two brothers and my father) and their loss was REAL and painful - not just fleeting or temporary. So when organizations like PETA, or the liberal media get their "canines in a knot" over Vick's alleged activity, the obvious question to ask of them is: "why are they not as equally outraged, or more so, at the loss of human life through abortion?" Hear me clear: on one level, I do understand that the violent, inhumane treatment of household pets should be guarded against. BUT, on the other hand, why are some more outraged at pit-bulls fighting rather than the senseless murder of millions of unborn babies?
If you're not outraged by the millions of deaths caused by abortion -- then, and I mean this in the most Christian spirit possible -- please just spare us all the postmodern political-correct skubalon of equating the suffering of animals with humans; and just shut-up about the mistreatment of dogs.
But where is the same outrage when it comes to the senseless murdering of unborn children?
The planet has not gone green;
but it has gone red--
soaked with the blood of the unborn.
Don't miss the message here folks: if those millions of babies slaughtered by the abortionists had been dogs,,, they would have never been aborted. BUT, because they are, Vick might face some serious jail time if convicted, while the abortion mills just continue on with the slaughter of millions more children. And if we cry outrage in our society, then we are the ones who will receive the scorn while the abortionists go untouched by a culture who treasures their pets more than their children.
Let me be clear: killing a dog for sport is not murder, though inhumane; but killing an unborn child is murder and is always inhumane. When was the last time any politician suggested that an abortionist should be prosecuted and receive jail time for the murder of innocent HUMAN life?
Maybe that's something the next YouTube video debate should include. I wonder how Barack and Hillary would answer on this issue...
