I knew it would come eventually. At some point it would come out and though they would have denied it if I had told them this was their worldview it didn't take long for them to type it out themselves.
There's been a protracted discussion on a local neighborhood elist which started with a Herculean effort to save a wounded dog wandering at large in the neighborhood. Frustrated by what one neighbor saw as extraordinary effort to save an animal which barely had an owner they dared to wonder if folks had shown as much interest in local schoolchildren. Parents of 'furkids' were highly offended and quick to defend their actions but it wasn't until today we got the absolute truth--well their version of Truth anyway.
"There are plenty of organizations and impromptu groups who form to take care of people, too. One is not more important than the other. It's two different things."
I'm a throw-back living in a post-modern age. I know that. This is just the latest evidence. I live in a world where people will expend enormous amounts of energy saving a dog with a fatal wound and demanding the city 'do something' NOW while also demanding their right to kill a child in utero and condemning me for trying to save him.
God have mercy on us all.
