Church silence promotes violence to humans, to animals, to our environment, to our economy, to our education, to our finances, and to our health.

Letter from Michelle - 12 Jan 2005 - Part 2

What I find ironic is that these "Christians" are committing the ultimate sin, which is murder, and think they are still going to Heaven. Do they really think that by causing innocent creatures to suffer and die will get them anywhere else but Hell? Obviously these people don't think. I mean, come on! It's pretty obvious when you do think about it. Taking away any innocent life is murder, and something the Bible speaks out against the most. It's these kind of Christians that I refer to as "crazy Christians" because they have to be pretty darn crazy to think that they can justify the suffering and killing of innocent animals, because it can't be justified.

They have to be crazy to think they still will be rewarded in the end. I think the worst are the scientists who test on animals, whether they're religious or not. What they do is unspeakable. They're a bunch of Nazi monsters torturing and cutting apart animals for the benefit of Science.

Their laboratories are torture chambers. It's twisted, disturbing, and disgusting that they are allowed to get away with this. They have no heart nor compassion to the innocent and helpless little creatures they cause pain to. These creatures have no way of defending themselves. It brings tears to my eyes thinking about what these poor animals have to go through. There are so many alternatives. Why is it still happening? Why did it ever happen? It just proves that people haven't become civilized over the past centuries as much as they think they have. Civilized is the last thing these animal abusers are. I know I'm getting very riled up, but these types of issues just make me furious. What kind of evil world do we live in that allow the innocent to suffer so tremendously? There can never be any logical reason or justification to this madness and massacre, even if it did help with medical research, which in truth it doesn't. No species reacts alike, and it's all a very sad waste of innocent life.

Thanks for reading.

Church Silence Promotes Violence
The intent of this series is to wake up and encourage the Church to greater works of love and compassion (John 14:12).  It is not to condemn the Church, in general, or any individual, any more than Jesus condemned the woman caught in adultery.  Jesus said to her, "...go your way.  From now on sin no more." (John 8:11)  And this is our message to the Church:  Recognize our sins of the past and go forth seeking to be perfect as our heavenly Father is perfect (Matthew 5:48), correcting the sins of the past, for that is the only way we can truly show the world that we love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, might, and mind, including the whole of creation, which includes our neighbors whom we are to love as ourselves.
