"Wherever there is Animal Worship there is Human Sacrifice."


This is remarkable: the connection between the almost pagan obsession with Cecil the lion, and the slaughter of babies by Planned Parenthood.

As usual, Chesterton understands our time:
There is a healthy and an unhealthy love of animals: and the nearest definition of the difference is that the unhealthy love of animals is serious. I am quite prepared to love a rhinoceros, with reasonable precautions: he is, doubtless, a delightful father to the young rhinoceroses. But I will not promise not to laugh at a rhinoceros. . . . I will not worship an animal. That is, I will not take an animal quite seriously: and I know why. 
Wherever there is Animal Worship there is Human Sacrifice. That is, both symbolically and literally, a real truth of historical experience.

  2. Indeed. The apposed link between Cecil and PP ;) could not be more stark and shocking.

    As G.K. Chesterton also wrote, “Darwinism can be used to back up two mad moralities, but it cannot be used to back up a single sane one. The kinship and competition of all living creatures can be used as a reason for being insanely cruel or insanely sentimental; but not for a healthy love of animals. … The main point of Christianity was this: that Nature is not our mother: Nature is our sister. We can be proud of her beauty, since we have the same father; but she has no authority over us; we have to admire, but not to imitate.”

    These abominations, supposedly human beings, illustrate the insanely cruel end of the atheist Darwinian idiocy.
    On the other side we see all these mainstream media professional imbeciles, the ridiculously LONG list of Hollywood bona fide ignoramuses crying and whining over poor Cecil the lion, (though 100s of lions are shot every year both for the hunt and for wildlife population control) manifesting the "insanely sentimental" side of Darwinian fundamentalist insanity, as though the barbaric and violent murder of multiple millions of humans in their mothers wombs were nothing newsworthy!

    They are simply following the atheist Darwinian logic to its inescapable conclusions. That is, humans are no more valuable than lab rats, "sharing a common heritage with earth worms" - as one biology textbook used across North American schools put it.

    Convince people that they are mere animals with no soul, no God, no life after death and no intrinsic objective value and this is the inevitable type of atrocity you see, sooner or later. And with the equally atrocious utter lack of any tinge of conscience. EXACTLY like Hitler's SS murderers and doctors of death. There is no difference except that today, having that horrendous lesson of history to enlighten them, these modern killers and traffickers of human life are worse, having grasped nothing of that history. Indeed, they are the new SS, the new Doctors of Death. The new Dark Side Devils. They act worse than the animals they link themselves to.

    "For when we cease to worship God, we do not worship nothing, we worship anything." ... "It's the first effect of not believing in God that you lose your common sense, and can't see things as they are."
    - G.K. Chesterton

    So true.
