Animal Rights Activist Accused of Supporting Rape & Murder & Mayhem

In his video, the activist supports vile crimes against vile people.
He is perhaps the one person in the world tuned into a dying
animal's innermost thoughts.

Animal Rights Activist Accused of Supporting Rape & Murder & Mayhem

"You shall not murder.*"
- God, Deuteronomy 5:7, God's lone suggestion out of 10
(the seventh) containing an asterisk allowing eleven circumstances
where murder is okay with him. (Also Exodus 20:13)

Does the butcher who slices the throat of a baby lamb deserve
to die? Even if he's nice about it? How can be nice about taking
any living creature's life? That's what Gary Yourofsky has been
asking for the 20 years since I've known him.

The video is 28 minutes long, and like the best books I recall
having read in my life, I could not put it down. I had to watch
every moment to witness each word coming from this man.

I can count on one hand the number of men and woman
I have loved in my life for their pure hearts.

I love this man dearly.

Violence begets violence. How many people have you
encountered in your lifetime who truly believe that there
is never justification for an act of violence? I've only met
one. Retribution for the perpetrator of an initial violent
action is a different matter entirely to this man of pure spirit.
Like the four horsemen of the Apocalypse, you do not want
to come face to face with retribution in a dark alley.

"The ultimate weakness of violence is that it
is a descending spiral; returning violence with
violence only multiplies violence, adding deeper
darkness to a night already devoid of stars."
