A California-based animal rights activist group called Direct Action Everywhere decided to enter grocery stores and perform “funerals” for frozen chickens. In doing so, they are demonstrating the same mental illness that the sodomites like Dan Savage demonstrate.
The video, which was from East Bay in Berkeley, open with a DAE rep picking up a frozen chicken, then marching to somewhere in between the fruits and vegetables (no pun intended) and declaring, “It’s not food, it’s violence,” which is the mantra of DAE.
Others gather around as a sizeable coffin, big enough to hold dozens of whole fryers in it, is set down and the chicken placed inside. “Mourners,” dressed in black, begin to assemble behind the coffin with flowers and signs chickens and other animals on them that read, “We won’t forget.”
It takes store security several minutes to show up and tell them that they need to stop what they are doing. However, the deranged group continues to go on with their protest like a bunch of mindless robots, eventually taking up the casket, parading it through the store, up to the front of the store and continuing to show forth their animal worship.
Store security eventually informs the protesters that the police are on the scene and they have to go. They eventually leave, but never pay for the chicken.
One wonders why these people are not arrested and charged with trespassing. If I enter a store and someone happens to catch a glimpse of my gun I carry, they could ask me to leave and if I fail to do so, I would then be trespassing. Why was that not the case here? Do people just not want to rock the boat today? Is that it?
So, you may be asking yourself, why does Tim refer to these people as those who are involved in “animal worship” and why does he say they have the same mental illness as sodomites? That’s a good question. Here’s the simple answer.
In the famous passage of Romans 1 that is often quoted regarding sodomy, it also references animal worship.
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
Notice that the very next verses deal with homosexuality. One wonders how many of these protesters have already been given over to the very uncleanness that Paul references here and dishonored their own bodies by engaging in sodomy and lesbianism.
For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
These people are no different than those across the world who starve to death in the sight of cows due to the fact that they have bad theology that leads them to believe the cow is somehow sacred, either by its intrinsic nature or because of the doctrine of reincarnation.
However, one wonders what we might discover if we followed each of the people involved around with a camera to see what they ate each day. My guess is that like so many others, we would witness the absolute hypocrisy.
These people desire to protect the life of an animal, which God has said that men can use for food rather than stand up for other human beings who are being murdered in their mother’s womb with the approval of the state.
When one rightly understands the role of animals on the earth, men made in the image of God, and those men honor the Creator as God, then this kind of nonsense fades into oblivion. When men do not do these things, this is the result and it only goes downhill from there.
