Noble cause, don't you think?
They are PRO: Puppy Mills, Horse Soring, Canned Hunting, Factory Farming (think chickens, cattle, pigs, sheep, etc living in filth/cages with no room to move or lie down right up until they hit your dinner plate), Cockfighting, Dog Fighting, and quite frankly anything else they dream up to use their animals for. Anyone who is opposed to animal cruelty in any way is labeled a:
"Liberal animal rights activist/terrorist, who is a homosexual vegan/vegetarian and thinks that animals are superior to humans and should not be owned or used in any way - probably has never owned a pet, hates all animals and humans and hopes that people loose their lives and children starve while all animals domestic and wild are set free to roam the Earth and die miserable, wilderness inflicted deaths."
They will quote the Bible all day long, 'Good Christians' that they are, using part of Genesis 1:26 (not the whole verse, mind you, just a few words) "God gave man dominion over all the animals!"
Oh, shut up, you illiterate, heartless, hypocritical fools.
This is my response to their ramblings:
So you are also against Animal Welfare? Animal Rights and Animal Welfare are two totally separate issues, but you already know that (even though you lump them into the same category when complaining about Animal Welfare). The first deals with giving animals the same rights as humans and removing their property status. Animal Welfare is simply the notion that animals should not be treated poorly and cruelly, no matter if they are someone's property or not.
Numbers 22:32 ESV: And the angel of the Lord said to him, “Why have you struck your donkey these three times? Behold, I have come out to oppose you because your way is perverse before me.
Luke 12:6 ESV: Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? And not one of them is forgotten before God.
Exodus 23:5 ESV: If you see the donkey of one who hates you lying down under its burden, you shall refrain from leaving him with it; you shall rescue it with him.
Ecclesiastes 3:19 ESV: For what happens to the children of man and what happens to the beasts is the same; as one dies, so dies the other. They all have the same breath, and man has no advantage over the beasts, for all is vanity.
Proverbs 12:10 ESV: Whoever is righteous has regard for the life of his beast, but the mercy of the wicked is cruel.
God gives us dominion over the animals, but it is not without compassion that we are supposed to treat them. This is made clear in verse after verse in the Bible. We are not to hurt animals, but are to use them for food, clothing and to carry our burdens. We are to use them kindly, with regard to any unnecessary suffering.
To pretend that Cock Fighting, Dog Fighting, Bull Fighting, Horse Soring, Factory Farming, Canned Hunting, or any other means of "harvesting" animals in a cruel fashion is condoned by God is nothing more than Satan's speak. The Devil has a forked tongue, and his language is deceit. Do not confuse gentle use and ownership of animals with blatant cruelty without regard for God's creation.
The Cavalry Group appears to be nothing more than a hate group, that condones outright abuse using lies and propaganda to further it's "right" to torture living things. I love animals, and I own and have owned many kinds of animals. From rats to horses and cattle, I have owned and used many - but never have I inflicted pain for personal and Satanic satisfaction.
The Universe has a way of balancing itself. Evil seems to have the scales tipped these days...I sense a purge coming.
Ride safe all.
