There are a lot of people who feel that Tilikum, the killer whale who violently killed his trainer last month, should be put down for what he did. The American Family Association have taken it one step further and are protesting to have the animal subjected to Judeo-Christian tradition and be stoned to death for killing Dawn Brancheau.
Stoning, really? Someone get these people a calender!
AFA Director Bryan Fisher put out a call to action on the organizations website, posting:
"If the counsel of the Judeo-Christian tradition had been followed, Tilikum would have been put out of everyone’s misery back in 1991 and would not have had the opportunity to claim two more human lives…Says the ancient civil code of Israel, 'When an ox gores a man or woman to death, the ox shall be stoned, and its flesh shall not be eaten.'"
Oh, but that's not all!
Not only do they want the killer whale stoned, the "scriptures" also insist that owner of the animal has to die right along with it, since they failed to kill the animal after he claimed his firstvictim. The organization's choice of sinner - Chuck Tompkins, the curator of animals at SeaWorld.
So you want more people to die. That makes perfect sense. Very Christian of you. Exactly what Jesus would have done!
SeaWorld better start having security check for rocks on visitors before they come into the park! This could get serious!
