I Had to Ruminate on This–Vick vs. Humans

A few days ago, I received an article from A Newt One regarding Michael Vick. It was a powerful article and I will link it at the bottom of this article. But the author brought up something that’s been on my mind for quite some time, and that is the value of a human life vs. the value of an animal life.

Anyone with even the most rudimentary knowledge of me knows I’m virulently pro-life. I don’t believe abortion should be legal for ANY reason, no matter how many ways you can say “but what if”…

None. No reason at all. Abortion is murder, plain and simple, in any form and for any reason. If you want to know why I feel this way, please check my previous posts on the issue, and they will be linked below as well.

John Edwards made a stupefyingly stupid statement regarding the war on terror, stating it was nothing more than a bumper sticker war. Well, here’s some bumper stickers for ya:



I WISH I saw more of THESE particular bumper stickers.

But we don’t and we won’t because they’re not politically correct. They speak to a culture of life instead of a culture of death. They deny a woman her choice to hire a murderer and become an accomplice in her own child’s murder.

They speak to a conscience most people lack these days, a conscience that’s been suppressed in favor of defeat, hate America, glorify excess and revel in bad behavior.

They make a rational person stop and think about what’s going on inside a womb–a heart beating, nerves feeling, a baby sucking his or her thumb, engaging in life, feeling protected–until the murderer’s scalpel invades his or her domain and starts cutting that child to pieces because that child had the misfortune to be conceived by an irresponsible bitch who lay down and spread her legs and doesn’t want to be bothered. Or, in a much rarer instance, where the child had the misfortune to be conceived during an act of violence such as a rape or child molestation. Either way, the child is a complete innocent paying the ultimate price for nothing more than existence and a murderer has been hired, the blood money paid and the child is killed.

The murderer and accomplice(s) go scott free with no consequences, free to murder again. With impunity. And this happens over 4,000 times per DAY.

Enter Michael Vick.

I’m not a huge sports fan–I know everybody has their hobbies and for a vast majority of people that includes professional sports. That’s fine. I’m appalled at the outrageous salaries professional players are paid. One reason I’m not a fan. And the fact those salary costs are passed down to the consumer in ticket prices, memorabilia, etc.

Up until this latest “scandal” broke, I didn’t even know who Michael Vick was, nor did I care.

Along with my feelings on abortion, though, I am a pet lover. I’ve had or known a few pit bulls of my own, all of them the most gentle of dogs, fiercely protective of their loved ones, incredibly gentle with the younger members of a family. I currently have 4 cats–1 I inherited from my dead mother, 1 I inherited from my dying stepmom, 1 who walked into my house and adopted ME, and one I rescued from an abusive situation. I also have one dog–inherited from my dying stepmom as well. One thing keeping her agitated was who was going to take her animals and care for them. Most of my pets have been “mutts” because, frankly, mutts don’t have the inbred problems purebreds have. However, my stepmom’s animals are purebreds (the cat is a Himalayan with siamese markings, the dog is an American eskimo). My stepmom’s dog has not endeared herself to anyone, but for some reason we get along and I couldn’t hurt my stepmom, so I took the dog as well and she has since calmed down immensely and become a valuable member of the household.

I’m also a meat-eater. I firmly believe in the hierarchy of life, when God gave man dominion over the animals it was for the proper use of animals and animals to serve man–NOT the other way around.

That in no way implies ANYONE has a right to grossly abuse the animals under their care.

What Michael Vick has done to those animals under his care is horrible. It’s disgusting. There are simply no words for it.

There’s a controversy over whether or not Michael Vick should be banned for life from football. Of course he should. Why is there even a controversy? For crying out loud, Pete Rose was banned for life for GAMBLING. What Vick has done is so far beyond what Rose did, there’s no comparison. So why is it even being discussed?

Because this country has lost all sense of a moral compass is why it’s being discussed.

Murder is acceptable, at least if it’s an unborn child being murdered. Gambling is *gasp* horrible and the gambler has to be banned for life.

Murdering, maiming, engaging in illegal behavior? That’s up for discussion. BUT only if it’s an animal’s life under discussion. Humans don’t count–unless you’re one of the current crop of celebs–Lohan, Spears, Ritchie, Hilton, Smith. Or a corrupt sports star–Bonds, Vick.

Whatever happened to true heroes and stars? Police, Firemen, REAL Teachers (not paid shills of the NEA), Astronauts, sports stars of old, Hollywood stars who were virulently Pro American, Doctors. Stars who, had they engaged in behavior considered acceptable today, were black-listed as box-office poison, shunned for their immorality? Whatever happened to the people kids looked up to who loved God, cried unashamedly when the National Anthem was played and would no more think of murdering a baby than the man in the moon (back when it was made of green cheese)? People of conscience, not afraid to speak out when something was wrong, and to shun the wrong doer? Whatever happened to those people?

They don’t exist anymore–not really. Or they’ve become part of the slumbering giant awakening and saying NO MORE WILL WE TOLERATE THIS NONSENSE.

In the meantime, it’s more acceptable to discuss the fate of a man who willingly destroyed canine life and ignore the fate of the murdering doctors and their accomplices, the birth incubators because that’s not “chic”. It’s acceptable to kill an unborn human with not a second thought while it’s an outrage to kill an animal.

Michael Vick should be no more than a blip on our radar screens…a passing news story, with a simple byline–NFL star stripped of contract, banned for life for animal atrocities, prison sentence to follow excessive fines, stripped of all awards, end of story.

Instead of worrying about the casualty counts of the war on terror, how about we start publishing the statistics on the everyday murders going on in our backyard each and every day? The libs want to publish the names, addresses and pictures of sex offenders and drunk drivers–cool, do it. How about the names, addresses and pictures of abortion doctors, women getting abortions and all the attendant personnel each day on the evening news? And, while you’re at it, publish their abortion of choice–full, gory pictures of the child they’ve slain right alongside mom’s picture? There was certainly no hesitation to publish the gory pictures of Vick’s handiwork.

Since when is an animal’s life worth more than a human’s? What kind of idiotic world are we living in?

One we deserve–for not putting a stop to this insanity 30+ years ago. When Roe v. Wade was legislated from the bench and murder was made legal. One where human life was legislated as irrelevant.

However, in a truly just world, the picture below would be a fait accompli:

Until we as a nation put our priorities back in order, this kind of insanity will continue. The first step to restoring our sanity is to put human life above animal life, where our Creator intended it to be.

Quit killing humans with impunity. Punish the abortion mill workers and their murdering customers.

Punish those that abuse animals. That’s abuse–not using them for what God intended–to SERVE us, not the other way around.
