Not too long ago I wrote some thoughts about the uproar caused over Cecil the Lion.
Now – I feel I must bang the drum again…
A few days ago it seems a three-year-old boy fell into the gorilla exhibit at the Cincinnati Zoo.
The gorilla dragged the boy through shallow water and up a rock wall, so in order to protect the child, the gorilla was shot.
Human life was chosen over the gorilla…
And THAT has dominated the news in our country!!!
I read today that over 300,000 people have signed a petition to try to get the police to investigate the parents!
(Let me be clear – if the mom and dad thought it would be awesome to toss their toddler into the gorilla’s playground then something SHOULD be something done. However, I would be willing to bet that’s not the case!)
What’s my point here?
It’s simple – hypocrisy!
I wonder if the same 300,000 people have been equally bothered by Christians being beheaded/tortured in the Middle East?
I wonder if the same 300,000 people were as upset when all of the dirt was exposed on planned parenthood?
I wonder if the same 300,000 people were as upset when Dr. Kermitt Gosnell murdered a child after a botched abortion?
I feel bad for the gorilla…but…I would argue that human life simply has more value.
