Religious Fanatics Want To Kill Tilikum The Whale - And Then Some!

| Filed under: Sad Sad

killerwhalewenn2753888.jpg

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!

    god Christians are so damn annoying. perhaps we should have a christian fight a killer whale (with out a weapon of course) for our entertainment. good times. why can't they bring those activities back since they are suggesting kicking it old skool.



  2. 2

    leave the WILD ANIMAL that humans held hostage alone and stone bryan fisher and everybody in his retarded organization to death.

    how the f*ck can they call themselfs christians that is so wrong
    god wanted animals in the SEA,at the end of the day its the humans fault for taking it out of the sea,and whatever happens is not the whales fault its a wild animal ffs.No way theyre killing the whale and how sick are they to want the whale stoned.



  5. 5

    wow those people should be the ones that should be stoned to death..that poor whale needs to be in the wild where it beongs



  6. 6

    Wow, that's sickening!!

    Here's a radical idea… just free the poor thing



  7. 7

    that picture isnt tilikum

    That's just crazy talk! You can't blame the whale for being a wild animal!



  9. 9

    You can't judge a wild animal for acting out when it is being held in a prison. Killer whales belong in their homes, which is the ocean, not in a SeaWorld pool. FREE TILIKUM!!!!!!!!!



  10. 10

    Christians and muslims embracing stoning, finally some common ground!
    Regardless: Killer Whales should not be on display! Being in a fishtank is no place for these animals, they belong in the ocean. I actually think its more humane to harpun a whale, than having them as a circus act.

    Hahahaha! United States of America!!



  12. 12

    ". . . get these people a calendar" — HA !!!!!!



  13. 13

    how about they put the whale where it belongs, IN THE OCEAN!!!!!!!! are these people retarded??? seriously ill stone these people if i see them even try to touch that whale



  14. 14

    Fucking idiots. People need to realize that WILD ANIMALS shouldn't be put in these situations in the first place.

    Can't wait for religion to be abolished. Nothing but self-righteous hypocrites. Religion is ruining the world.



  15. 15

    O good grief THEY WANT TO STONE A WHALE! WOW , I couldn't even read past that without trying to attempt to picture them STONING A FUCKIN WHALE! WHAT FUCKING MORONS!!!!!!!!!! How about WE STONE THEM???????



  16. 16

    I hate religious people and how they think that humans are the superior animal. We have destroyed this earth and the creatures in it. Containing a giant whale into a small area and forcing it to do tricks for human entertainment is WRONG. It's a wild animal in cavity. These religious freaks should be killed for ruining the world, not animals.



  17. 17

    I don't think the whale should be killed, I think the whale should be released back into the wild.



  18. 18

    Good freakin' God: LET HIM BE FREE - in the ocean - as it was meant to be! No punishment, just FREEDOM! :/



  19. 19

    Here's an idea. Why don't humans LEAVE WILD ANIMALS ALONE and stop training them like they're a dog or a cat. Oh but once someone gets hurt or killed then of course the animal is to blame. GET FUCKING REAL you dumbass "christians" Disgusting.



  20. 20

    GOD religious freaks need to GO!



  21. 21

    Re: mobius lion – HAHAHA I can't STOP LAUGHING to the thought of this! I say BRING IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  22. 22

    Why do you feed in to them and give them any sort of attention? Even though we all know they are crazy, by posting an article referring to their cause just gives them more of a reason to continue hating.



  23. 23

    It's an orca, a wild animal. It's how it goes, it was three people in the wrong place at the wrong time. It probably didn't even seriously mean to hurt them.

    Has no one learnt that killing for killing is never going to solve anything, sure it may make you feel better but in the end your no better than those that go out and kill to sell for profit.



  24. 24

    "Stoning, really? Someone get these people a calender!" LOL funny



  25. 25

    Christians are the most annoying fucks on the planet. We need to put all the outragious christians in a state and they can just have at eachother. The whale is a WILD FUCKING ANIMAL! I'm sure the trainor knew she might die at the hands of the whale and that obv didn't bother her. It's a tragedy she died. But its a fucking whale; put it in a secluded tank and be done with it. Christians need to shut the fuck up and get with the times, like seriously who the hell pulled the stoning shit outta their ass. Ridiculous..



  26. 26

    this is beyond crazy!! I hope they they do check for rocks or stones when people enter seaworld.. disgusting!!



  27. 27

    What's the difference between a religious person and a schizophrenic? Non really.



  28. 28

    People are such idiots! It is a WILD animal for Pete's sake! Set it free in the ocean where it belongs…kill it because it killed out of instinct. Please people, get a freakin' life!



  29. 29

    Um, not all Christians believe in this. The AFA does NOT represent the majority. Please be considerate to those who follow the Christian faith instead of trying to bash them over non-senseless people like the AFA who "represent" them.



  30. 30

    Re: SammiDe – I would pay to see this for sure.



  31. 31

    OMG, nice yeah kill the whale whose name oddly enough is KILLER WHALE!? HELLO do we not realize that animals are still animals no matter how tame or nice or anything they seem. Its still an animal with animal instincts. Its funny how they think this animal should be killed, but if you were to ask a Christian what they thought of the death penalty for a serial killer, a child rapist, or those likes, they certainly wouldn't think that was a good idea. *Sigh* This world is seriously fucked but whatever to each their own.



  32. 32

    When you take an animal out of its natural surroundings and make it do unnatural things,, lock it in a closed in enviornment, beause we as humans feel we have the right to do so, and someone gets hurt or killed well thats the risk you take, and I dont know what kinda sick twisted religion these ppl are into but I have never heard of stoning, killing or hurting anyone or anything in my church and the day I do, I am done!!!! ppl that say stuff like this are just sadistic morons!!



  33. 33

    im pretty sure god would stone these bitches for even thinking of this crap.



  34. 34

    This is total BULLSHIT. The whale is an animal. Its going to do this. More people are killed by horses and dogs every year yet i don't see stupid ass christians going around killing Fluffy. This is total bullshit. Im all for the killer whale being set back into the ocean. But in all honestly it was raised in captivity and it doesnt have the right instincts to live in the ocean. This poor whale is stuck in a tank without the excitment to hunt or play like whales are ment to. Whales are made to swim hundreds of miles in just one day yet these poor animals are being made to live in small tanks while people take pictures. Seaworld has said the the whale was only wanting to play. It in their nature to play. They dont realize that they are too big and too rough for humans. Im so disgusted right now.

    Religious nuts of all kinds drive me nuts. They're so hypocritical….most of them would have been stoned to death for the sins they commit every day based on the literal translation of the bible, etc.



  36. 36

    I protest AFA's protest. Bryan Fisher is a fucking poor excuse for a human. Would love nothing more than to see him thrown into a tank of hungry sharks.



  37. 37

    It is a FUCKEN KILLER WHALE….I mean the word "Killer" is even it's description, why is everyone so goddamn surprised? Here's a concept….leave the oh so evil Killer Whale IN ITS OWN DAMN NATURAL ENVIRONMENT. UGH!! God….why are people so incredibly ridiculous, why Perez why?



  38. 38

    Christians are such hyprocrites. And for anyone who wants to bash me for that comment, I'll go ahead and say that I grew up going to Baptist and Episcopal churches and have relatives who are pastors.



  39. 39

    hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha! I wanna see those fucktards get smacked around by the All Mighty Tilikum's fin and then do like a crazy jump in the air and land on those psycho jesus freaks! Killer Tili is gonna put it down on those prehistoric christians! I hate religion! Kill on Tilikum!



  40. 40

    You haven't seen the DVD called 'the Secret'? . And if you did make it to church you are likely Catholic. Unless anyone actually knows anything about the book. In other words - you have no knowledge and have not studied any religion. I would guess you haven't been to college…

    anyhow…little minds.
    ps:I wouldn't let the Whale near anything or anyone that could come into harm…people will pay to see this whale even if it is Not in a show. Beware Dudette:
    if you don't put an animal like this down then this could happen again when it kills someone else.
    Stone? Really? Stoning is a tenique used a long time ago. Jesus was Jewish first so the Jewish use to stone.lol Stoning is outdated…today we have needles. Fair trade right -1) One whale life for three human lives?…Or -2)Just release the whale to the into ocean?



  41. 41

    Let's put those idiots in an aquarium for 20 years and stone them if they dare to act naturally. It's not like the whale did it because he's evil. Even if he was evil, it wouldn't be it's fault.



  42. 42

    maybe the people that contain animals should themselves be contained.



  43. 43

    I don't understand why anyone would blame a WILD ANIMAL for what it did. He didn't "violently attack" her, it was probably trying to play, but obviously because he is a WILD ANIMAL it didn't understand what happened. When humans cage WILD ANIMALS they are accepting responsibility for whatever the animals do–including kill or mame. Bottom line: LEAVE THE WILD ANIMAL ALONE!!!



  44. 44

    I say we stone the people who are suggesting this barbaric thing to a wild animal.

    who the hell cares what Jesus followers think or want?



  46. 46

    these people are FUCKING STUPID!!!!!!!!!!!



  47. 47

    What a moron. Maybe we should stop taking these animals from their natural habitats. We're the ones in violation here…not the Wild Animal. The trainer..i'm truly sorry for her passing…but she and all trainers know the risks…as they say..it comes with the territory.



  48. 48

    None of those killer whales should be in that "bathtub" at sea-world! It's inhumane to keep them in that tiny space! It doesn't need to be killed- it needs to be in the ocean- where they belong!!



  49. 49

    These radical 'christians' give all christians a bad name. They sound like a bunch of idiots.



  50. 50

    What a bunch of idiots! They sound like one big crazy cult.



  51. 51

    they can just go fuck themselves. go back into your holes and dont come out till you realize that accidents happen and everyone realized the risk they were taking, working with an animal that doesnt normally associate itself with humans in the wild.

    go away, nobody cares about your ideas. welsome to freaking 2010 assholes.



  52. 52

    fucking religious freaks need to fall off a cliff.
    this animal is being kept in a tiny tank, of course its going to be irritated and pissed off. why dont you fucking free it instead? dumbasses.



  53. 53

    Jesus Christ, this is an extremely intelligent, thinking being who's been incarcerated by humans and forced to do things that makes no sense to it for YEARS. Of course Tilikum snapped and lost it, why do people seem surprised by this?! The fact that wild animals are slapped with a price tag and used like this is beyond shameful. I hate America, SeaWorld, and right wing Christian fucks who propagate this shit. You fuckers are the ones who deserve to be stoned to death, you and nasty useless offspring.

    lol why not stone the lions, tigers & all wild animals, i'm sure they'd kill humans too.. i hope someone stones bryan fisher in the ass.



  56. 56

    omfg!!!:O
    them people are fucking retarted basterds
    UGHHH…they should be stoned to death the fucking freaks…>:(



  57. 57

    Re: magicnmayhem – Exactly. We are all part of this problem.



  58. 58

    I think the animal should be allowed to live. Animals do not exist to entertain that way. It is a consequence of the human manipulation towards animals. You cannot expect a whale to behave exactly like you want it to all the time. Animals are meant to be free. So they should free that whale.



  59. 59

    They should feed Lady Hag Hag to Tilikum, but I guess they don't want to give the whale herpes.



  60. 60

    I think the fanatic dude should go ahead and stone the orca. With pebbles. While standing in the tank with fish strapped to his testicles. God would want it that way. He told me so.



  61. 61

    please W-A-T-C-H the Academy nominated movie, THE COVE.

    THEN B-O-Y-C-O-T-T business that profit from exploiting animals.



  62. 62

    Heres a idea lets get all these religious morons in a holding tank the size of a bathtub get them stoned to some killer pot and make them jump thru hooops while listening to Black Sabbath all day.Fuck you,you freaks bring Tillicum back home to Vancouver Island where he belongs and he can live out his final years in PEACE



  63. 63

    please W-A-T-C-H the Academy nominated movie, THE COVE.

    THEN B-O-Y-C-O-T-T businesses that profit from exploiting animals.



  64. 64

    lol fucking morons. The whale is in captivity - killing one person should be its god damn right for having to perform tricks in front of pricks.

    cocksuckers



  65. 65

    the whale needs to be put out to sea. it will be dead in a week it wont know how to hunt for its food

    dead by starvation



  66. 66

    I just love Christians. Especially with tartar sauce!



  67. 67

    THIS MAKES ME SO MAD I COULD SPIT. HOW DARE THEY! RELIGIOUS FUCKS NEED TO DIE, NOT THE WHALE THAT IS SUPPOSED TO BE IN THE WILD ANYWAY!!!! I HATE RELIGIOUS PEOPLE !!!!!!!



  68. 68

    Re: monkeyhateclean – hahaha..



  69. 69

    Tili is a wild animal doing what comes naturally — she was a big play toy. Tragic. Sad. Don't make it worse by killing a creature that was born in the wild. Sickos. So sad that he has been in captivity for so many years that he would not know how to survive back in the wild. People like Bryan Fisher are what's wrong with this world.



  70. 70

    He's a wild animal…hello?? I don't support using wild animals for show, but the fact is if Seaword were to release him now-he would not know how to survive and would die. It's very sad that an experienced trainer was killed. However-he's a wild animal. He does not know better. He does what wild animals do. I don't think the big guy wants him killed…remember that whole Ark thing?



  71. 71

    Re: monkeyhateclean – LOL — you made my day



  72. 72

    Re: mobius lion – HAHA you just started my laughing all over again!! Too FUNNY! I WOULD TOO! :)



  73. 73

    Of course this is a tragedy, no young life should be taken so violently, but think about it.. a 7,000+ pound animal taken from its home and family to live in a way to small sized swimming pool. No one should expect this huge being to be forced to perform everyday in horrible conditions and still remain not violent.



  74. 74

    Re: tony_bull – yeah not shit! Sadistic you think! Stone a WHALE! Wow! That has got to be the most sadistic shit I heard this 2010! LOL!



  75. 75

    FREE THE WHALE! FREE ALL THE ANIMALS IN CAPTIVITY!



  76. 76

    that is horrible! FUCK those crazy ass hypochristians.



  77. 77

    Why not return the whale to it's natural habitat, the sea?????The poor creatures do not deserve to be held in captivity for our pleasure. I say, close Sea world. That is the only solution , for if they kill this whale, another incident will happen, it's only a matter of time.



  78. 78

    it's an animal, it's not like it's a human maliciously murdering people. These crazy people are basically trying to introduce the death penalty for animals, oy



  79. 79

    I wish these people would just be quiet…they give Christians a bad name and are NOT representative of the "general Christian population".



  80. 80

    Re: Rel_Yelnats – You are so right! There is NO WAY that whale could be set FREE and survive! For people to say that yeah it sounds all cute and clear cut , but it ISN'T! Poor thing and its NO ONE's fault but our own! People pay and will continue and still are continuing to pay to see these whales be tortured. The whole place should be shut down. I mean seriously! One of the assholes killed was a guy who wanted to take a MIDNIGHT SWIM WITH A FUCKIN WHALE! So it is Tilikum's FAULT! PLEASE! Now they want to stone the poor thing ! Give me a fucking break ! That is the worst thing I've heard in jesus FOREVER! Could you imagine if they were ALLOWED to ACTUALLY DO THAT! OMG , the poor thing would suffer for a LONG TIME! Ughhhh I'd HAVE to step in and I'm sure PLENTY MORE WOULD ALSO! Poor WHALE ! Stupid ASS PEOPLE! Fucking STONE a WHALE! IVE HEARD IT ALL NOW!!



  81. 81

    Is it me or are hardcore Christians OBSESSED with death…whether its their own "salvation" or the killing off of others. Geez…its 2010 and two people were playing with a KILLER whale! Whose fault is it?



  82. 82

    ok so does that mean we should pelt Tiger Woods with rocks since he's cheated on his wife?

    Religious freaks….so twisted. LEAVE WILD ANIMALS ALONE…stick to torturing each other.

    I say let all the religious freaks duke it out. They'll all probably kill each other.



  83. 83

    These people make us christians look really bad! I;m sorry but not all of us are like that or think like that. I, myself am shocked by what i read here!



  84. 84

    wow…its stupid people like this that give Christians a bad name! The whale is a WILD animal…he should be freed, not killed. How many humans does he have to kill until he gets his message across?? He wants the ocean, give it to him!

    2.a machine for impregnating fabric with rubber, as in the manufacture of automobile tires.
    –verb (used with object)
    3.to press in a calender.



  88. 88

    Wait a second, Perez…you say "So you want more people to die. That makes perfect sense. Very Christian of you."

    Very "Christian" of you?? Did you not read that what they want to do is part of a "JUDEO-Christian tradition"? Judeo-Christian refers to a set of beliefs and ethics held in common by Christianity AND Judaism. So why not also say "How very Jewish of you"?? I'll tell you why…because it has become so acceptable, so ENCOURAGED even, to bash Christianity at every opportunity. Forget about insulting OTHER religions, oh no! That would be biggotry and hatred!
    Now, I'm not saying that this stoning of the whale and it's owner talk is justified. It's ridiculous. What I am saying is I'm sick of everyone bashing Christianity for any reason, and leaving other religions alone. And for you assholes that say "Christians are so stupid" and "Christians are so annoying", you morons are straight up prejudice for hating on a religion and a people as a whole. The trashing of an entire religion based on the acts of a few–try doing that with Blacks or another religious group in public. See what happens.



  89. 89

    The animal should not be held in captive in the first place. How many times does an animal have to do this before it's released? Tilikum just wants to be put back where he came from — why is this so hard to understand? Maybe they need to stone one another… Seaworld is not at fault for this…this is the trainer's doing and not the animal or Seaworld's fault but I do believe, Tilikum, should be released to the wild.



  90. 90

    if disney would've left the whale in the frickin OCEAN where he belongs, maybe this wouldn't have hapened.



  91. 91

    It's a wild fucking animal! What the shit did you think would happen when you put a man dressed as a fucking seal infront of him!?

  92. mac says – reply to this


    92

    This whale should be hailed as a hero for doing what he does, naturally. I have absolutely NO pity for people who think they can play with wild animals and then get hurt, or die. I have no remorse for this very stupid woman. How dare they even suggest to kill this beautiful animal. And yes, this lovely woman, human being would still be alive today, if she had not been so damn stupid. I pity her stupidity, but that is all.



  93. 93

    What the FUCK?!!!

    First of all.. They should set the whale free.
    And second… WTF is wrong with these crazy fuckers?!
    ugh :| Stupid bastards.

    i don't even wanna talk about religion & the bible and such, but what fucking era do these people think they live in??



  94. 94

    Um the whale is in captivity for peoples entertainment. If you use wild animals or reptiles for entertainment purposes, you deserve to be bitten or killed.



  95. 95

    What a bunch of idiots. Furthermore Dawn knew the risks with the profession. I am sure she would not want tilikum put away



  96. 96

    Nobody is going to stone the whale. These assholes won't get anywhere near him.
    Too bad he can't be released. Poor thing.
    I think it was Gandhi that said "I really like Jesus, just not most Christians."
    Christian right Fundamentalists are all bat shit crazy and need to just mind their business! Isn't that what Jesus would do?



  97. 97

    Re: mobius lion – OK first off, don't generalize all Christians to be PSYCHOTIC like these people. I am Catholic and I totally DISAGREE with these fuck-tards… first off the animal should have NEVER BEEN put into captivity, second off TOO BAD that it killed people, its a fucking Killer whale what do you expect it to do? fucking blow kisses and give hugs? I don't think so. AND THIRDLY, the family of the LADY who died said that their DAUGHTER would NOT want the whale killed!!!!!!!! SOO these wierdo so called "christians" are the ones that need to be stoned and killed if you ask me.



  98. 98

    Human beings remove these animals out of their environment, train them to act as slaves to us and the moment these animals attack us, lets kill them? Sorry folks, we have to pay the price for doing these things to animals, there have been so many cruel acts towards them, many killer whales have been killed and no matter what they do to us we are responsible. No dolphins or whales are given a choice to entertain us. Idiots



  99. 99

    First of all… these are JEWS not CHRISTIANS. Jews follow the Old Testament: "Eye for an eye". Christians follow the New Testament: "Turn the other cheek".
    If you are going to bash an entire group of people, get your facts straight. Anyone who commented about how Christians are stupid and should be put to death. You are JUST as bad as these AFA people. I am a Christian, and would never hurt an animal. I'm actually studying Zoology in hopes to help save them. Nor would I ever wish bad things to happen to someone just because I don't agree with them. How childish.



  100. 100

    Fu**** retards!!!Stone them instead! Idiots!
