If Democracy Dictates Immorality, Does That Make it Right?

I read, mostly with disgust, an opinion piece from a newspaper reader disagreeing with a Portland (Maine) Press Herald editorial that stated that animals (in this case a dog) are not at par with the legal rights of people and that regardless of how any individual perceives the role of their pets, “…that’s not enough to make their emotional preferences anything that can be reliably considered in a court of law.” All but three states see pets as property not a member of the family, i.e. as one might see their son or daughter as a member of the family.

The editorial claims that the woman involved in the divorce, who wants joint custody of the dog, is “…trying to evolve part of the law.”

In the rebuttal to the PPH editorial, the author, who thinks a dog involved in a divorce, should be granted “custody” in the same fashion as courts decide the custody of children, specifically infants and mentally incapable adults. The author states: “The existing property law, treating beloved companions like things, will not “do for now.”

But here’s the real meat and potatoes of our post-normal society in which we live and, for some of us, are being subjected to, or forced to live with, because we live in a corrupt “democracy” (socialist-democracy) that has matured to a point where regardless of any moral or historic perspective on the role of animals in a society, because a society has reached moral bankruptcy, progressivism demands the laws be changed to reflect these changes. Not all of us agree in that perspective or the tactic to force society to amend its laws simply to cover the perverted perspectives of far too many pet owners.

In the first chapter of the Book of Genesis, on the sixth day God created everything in the waters and fowl of the air. And then He created all the rest of the animals, which include what today, man has decided to make into pets. In verse 26, Moses’ inspired words from God read, “Let us make man in our ]image according to our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the heaven, and over the beasts, and over all the earth, and over everything that creepeth and moveth on the earth.

There has been many discussions as to what the Scriptures mean when God gives Man “dominion” over all animals and creatures and to “…let them rule” over them, but a good forensic examination of the original Hebrew and Greek, as well as historic accounts, not only from the canonical Scriptures but well-referenced history writings, gives us great examples of how animals clearly did not exist equally as man, nor was that Yahweh’s intention.

In Old Testament Days, it was required of the followers of God (Yahweh) for daily sacrifices that included the killing and burnt offerings of animals to Yahweh. On special occasions, sometimes hundreds and thousands of the “unblemished” picks from sheep and cattle herds were sacrificed (killed).

In Matthew 8: 28-34, we read how Jesus (Yeshua) cast demons out of two men and sent them to a flock of swine a distance away. After the demons entered the pigs, the flock of pigs ran straight into the ocean and drowned.

We know in the Great Flood, Yahweh instructed Noah to collect “two of every kind” to be saved on board the ark. Noah and his family were saved because Noah obeyed Yahweh. All the rest of God’s creation were destroyed…and that means the animals aside from the “two of every kind.”

The apostle, Thomas, uses asses to accomplish Yeshua’s work. Yahweh instructed Thomas to speak to two mules and tell them what they were to do in order that Thomas would reach his destination on his way to India. Not only did the mules understand Thomas but they spoke back to Thomas.

In today’s post-normal, immoral and perverted society, Thomas would have probably been jailed for animal abuse…that is after he was admitted to the nut house.

If it was Yahweh’s intention that when he created all the creatures of the sea, the fowl of the air and all the beasts and crawling things, they were to be treated like, or with the same legal and constitutional rights as His creation of man, surely he would not have called man to kill the animals for sacrifices, nor to grow them and consume them as food? And would he have cast demons into pigs and then made them run and drown if animals (pets) had the same legal rights as humans?

Yes, perverted, extreme animal rights people like to quote Scripture (mostly out of context or simply out of ignorance or bastardized Scriptures) to promote their agendas and twisted narratives. Don’t be fooled. Yahweh is much more direct in his commandments. He wouldn’t have given man “power to rule over” animals if he intended them all to be protected, given rights, and to dwell in our homes.

The bottom line here is that simply because members of a society have been seriously mislead about their and their pet’s role in life, is not reason to demand “…to evolve part of the law” simply to accommodate their choice of a seriously misled existence.

Animals have their role. Animals, I would suppose by virtue of “dominion” and “rule over” have become pets for some people. It goes beyond the realm of intended existence to believe pets should be given the same rights as man and to demand the laws be changed to foment this misdirected lifestyle.

However, like most immoral things in this backward society, it’s only a matter of time before this perversity becomes total normalcy in a downward spiraling society absent the moral backbone of our Creator.

We choose to not follow Yahweh’s leadership.
