Remember how Dan Onorato went Rambo on the geese? Good times. Good times.
Look, I love animals, I do. Just not those of the bird variety. Or the spider variety. Or the snake variety. Or the screeching howler monkey variety. Or the biting variety. Or the slimy variety with tentacles and suction cup thingys.
Okay. I like dogs and that’s about it. Happy?
So check this quote out:
Appalled animal rights activists picketed County Executive Dan Onorato’s church in protest of the decision last year. “We would just like to point out the moral hypocrisy and we felt that the church was a place to shame him in front of his fellow parishioners,” Lindsay Zurosky, from Voices for Animals of Western Pennsylvania, said.
The moral hypocrisy? The church was the place to shame him?
First, scholarly dudes, tell me, where in the bible does it tell you that you can’t kill animals? Where’s that line that says, “And ye shall not kill the cow to eat the delicious burgers. Ye shall not kill the pigs to put the bacon on the delicious burgers. And most of all, ye shall not kill the geese that overpopulate your parks. Nay. Ye shall just deal with the poop and the snapping, m’kay?”
If I want beef, a cow must die. If I want to sit at the park and not have my lunch or maybe my bike stolen by a giant flock of geese, the geese must be controlled and that might mean that some of them need to die.
Also? Wanting to shame someone in front of their church seems a smidgen judgmental and vengeful.
Ms. Zurosky, that moral high horse you’ve been riding on just reared you off and took off running. Might want to get up off of your ass and chase after it, you hypocrite.
