St. Bonaventure, correctly, called animals “creatures without sin,” for it is we humans, not animals, who are each born with Original Sin — concupiscence or fomes peccati (tinder for sin).
Every country treats some animals in a utilitarian and unfeeling fashion, consuming them as food. In the United States, meat-eaters are oblivious or willingly blind to the corporate meat industry that confines cows, pigs and chickens in cramped cages where they live out their short wretched lives, fed a diet of hormones and antibiotics.
In some Asian countries, notably South Korea, cats and dogs — bred to be man’s companion for millennia — are consumed as food. (Read more about it and a campaign to stop it here.)
To deliberately abuse a “creature without sin” is terrible and bespeaks a person without empathy. Even worse is deriving pleasure from that abuse — sadism that is indicative of psychopathy. That is why serial killers are known to have abused/killed animals in their childhood, before they “graduate” to hunting, torturing, and killing people.
There are heinous animal abusers in the U.S., but they are regarded as criminal aberrations. Some entire cultures, however, treat animals with callous cruelty. Recently, a sickening video surfaced in social media of a dog, believed to be in India, tied up in a crucifixion position, being pelted with cigarettes and shoes.
Muslim countries, in particular, are rife with unimaginable cruelty toward animals. Walid Shoebat has been chronicling horrific cases of Muslim animal abuse. Below are two recent examples:
#1: In Iran, government gets rid of stray dogs by injecting them with acid. Acid is chosen because it is the least expensive poison, but the method is cruel because it consigns the dog to a painful and slow death, as the acid slowly corrodes the dog’s guts.
Below is a video that shows a dog being killed with acid, taking several agonizing minutes to die. The next one in line is just a puppy. You are forewarned!
#2: Muslim men, speaking Arabic, push a poor donkey over a cliff — and laughing about it.
YouTube removed the video, but you can see it here.
Walid Shoebat has many other examples of Muslim animal abuse, which collectively show there is something fundamentally wrong with Muslims and their so-called “religion of peace”:
