ANTI-HUMAN. Who thought we would come to this in Texas? In Dallas, a gorilla escaped from the zoo and attacked several people, causing injuries. The police had to shoot and kill the gorilla. Now, animal rights activists are protesting the shooting. They say the police should have used a tranquilizer gun. The police say they had one, but not with a clear shot, and the gorilla was attacking. The animal rights activists do not care. They do not care about the victims. They do not care about the policemen who put their own lives at risk to save others.

These people have gone beyond advocating for animals, to becoming anti-human. They have forgotten that people are indeed special, and higher than the animals. I guess we should expect this. They are the products of an education that did not teach them that men and women were made in God's image, but that they evolved from more primitive animals. Therefore all animals should have the same rights to exist.

This means they forgot, or ignored, the the other part of evolution, survival of the fittest. I guess you could call it selective evolutionary thinking. You take the part you like and ignore the remainder.

Come to think of it, many Christians do this too. They take the part of the Bible they like and ignore or criticize the rest.

The problem with this kind of thinking is that it leads you to stupid, illogical results, such as protesting those who saved humans at the expense of animals.
