The live is the measure of all things.
Billions of animals are massacred by the believers of this planet in the name of religion: Nepal-Gadhimai Festival, Halal blood sacrifice, sacrificial lamb orgies in the Orthodox Easter, not to forget the inquisitorial cat tracing in the Middle Ages, and the present Hubertus fairs, meat ordinations or bullfighting rituals . All this, as I said, takes place in the name of religion.
It was the Greek philosopher Protagoras who first said:
‘Man is the measure of all things’.
Then came Christianity. With the commandment of charity, with the command not to kill, not to steal. Man has been called the coronation of creation, and he has demonstrated from this position of power that even nuclear bombs can enter the service of charity !!!
For Christianity animals can not be placed on the human level. Animals have no soul, only instincts, and are therefore subordinate to humans and can only be used to satisfy their needs. So says the Catechism, and so we do it even today. Over two thousand years after Christ, we are still acting according to the morality of primitive deserts who did not know better then. Over two thousand years after Christ, we are still acting according to the morality of primitive inhabitants of the desert, who at that time did not know better.
We murder in the name of freedom of religion and love of God. What kind of love is this?
What kind of love is this, that goes over corpses?
And what kind of God is he who lives by the blood of his victims? Only when this society frees itself from the conviction that faith is more important than the lives of humans and animals can it develop morally.
Man is not the measure of all things. The live is the measure of all things.
with best regards for you, dear Mark!!
