Letters to the Editor

All God’s creatures deserve respect

I’m simply amazed by the concerted programs and policy positions of such organizations as the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and PETA, which tend to favor pet sterilization.

Our lord and creator made all living things in his likeness.

Who are we to decide which of his wonderful creatures should live or die?

Thoroughbred breeding is to the animal kingdom what ethnic cleansing is to mankind.

Virtually every known civilization bans in-breeding of human beings. In-breeding leads to physical deformities and idiocy.

Sterilization of pets deprives these wonderful creatures of the joy of procreation and the psychological comfort of nurturing their young.

Perhaps that little pup who was never allowed to exist might have warned a family that their house was on fire or kept some child from freezing in the wilderness while a search party attempted a rescue. Birth control is an affront to our lord and master and a lack of faith that he will provide for us all.
