Christina, I looked for his e-mail address also, and couldn't find one, I even tried joining the boards, just so I could tell him exactly what I thought of his comments, but after about a half hour of trying to join the boards, I finally gave up...every username I put in was supposedly taken...I even put in some ridiculous ones like debbyloveskats421987 and they still said it was taken!! What's up with THAT? Anyway, I really wish I had a way to tell this guy,I beleive his name was Mike George, if memory serves me right, exactly what I think of his "christian" comments.
Yes, The bible states that animals have no soul, per say, like we do, meaning they do not have to know right from wrong, or chose to beleive or not beleive, but as far as them not being in heaven, I feel that is ridiculous, because God is our father, and what father would deny his children their long lost pets, when they get to heaven. He wants us to be happy after all. And in the bible it says that God sees even the sparrow fall, and he cares, so how much more does he care for us, his children. So if he is seeing the sparrow fall, he obviously is seeing the cat who is tortured and murdered. And it angers him.
Now, I will admit, I eat meat, and I don't beleive the bible is against that, they even made sacrafices to God (at his request)of fatted calves, but I also beleive that God intended for the animals to only be killed for food and clothing, or to raise the funds for food and clothing...such as selling furs, etc.....but he also intended for the killing to be done in a very humane way, no suffering, and he also created certain animals, such as cats and dogs and horses, etc, to be compainions to us, and not for food or clothing, or killing in any way.
This is just my beleif, and I am not saying it is right, but it is just what I myself beleive.
I beleive it angers God terribly to see ANY animal tortured or mistreated and they will get their just dues someday.
