Cockfighting could earn millions for state
Regarding The Californian's May 26 editorial, "Two cockfighting bills that were long overdue": On behalf of the thousands of game-bird hobbyists, I'd like to say that anyone who has been raised around game birds knows that a rooster cannot be forced or trained to fight; this is a natural instinct that was instilled by God.
Animals that are forced to do what does not come naturally to them is cruel. Were horses meant to be ridden? Are the animals in the circus, zoo or rodeos meant to be used for our entertainment?
When it comes to cockfighting, who are these "experts" who claim that these chickens are "trained" to fight? What real proof is there that connects drugs, gangs, prostitution and gambling to this activity? Just to go Vegas, it's all there. Raising and fighting game birds requires money: money for feed and vitamins, money for building supplies for the pens, money for items to provide their chickens the best care; WIC or EBT benefits cannot be used to purchase these items.
The so-called "barbarians" who participate in this activity are working individuals who have jobs and pay taxes. If there are more than 50,000 cockfighters in California, then just imagine the money the state could produce if it was made legal and each of those 50,000 people had to purchase a yearly permit to fight: a $100 permit times 50,000 people equals $5 million or a $500 permit times 50,000 equals $25 million. Prior to being banned in Louisiana, cockfighting was a $150 million industry.

John F. Harless: Make cockfighting legal
My compliments to Dave Bultena for his daring article (“Time to make cockfighting legal in our state,” May 9, Page A11) on restoring cockers' 14th Amendment rights and kudos to The Modesto Bee for supporting the First Amendment right to print something that some may consider “appalling” or “obscene.”

My compliments to Dave Bultena for his daring article (“Time to make cockfighting legal in our state,” May 9, Page A11) on restoring cockers' 14th Amendment rights and kudos to The Modesto Bee for supporting the First Amendment right to print something that some may consider “appalling” or “obscene.”
In response to the letter “Cockfighting column was appalling”(May 14): Whether there is something wrong with cocking or not is not the point. The point is that cocking is singled out for persecution because of a lengthy campaign to demonize a minority class of people. The courts have held that moral disapproval is not a reason to deprive one of Constitutional rights. To correct the writer, gamecocks are not helpless or defenseless. Unlike other legal sports, cocks are matched by equal weight, age and weapon. Cocks fight because that is the instinct that God put into them. No power on Earth can make a cock fight if he doesn’t want to.
Other legal animal uses – hunting, fishing, trapping, falconry, animal slaughter, etc.– involve the victimizing of an unwilling, helpless, defenseless creature that wants no part of the “game.”
Spending limited resources to squelch one of the oldest sports known to man – that can’t be stopped – seems unwise. We should bring it into the light by legalizing, regulating and taxing it. California could realize millions of dollars and at the same time eliminate the attendant crimes that sometimes are present at clandestine gatherings.

The animal rights movement

Part one of a two part series by Dave Matherson



Have you ever
gone to the circus

Roll over Marx and Lenin!

Most people "love" animals...

God's intent has
always been for
man to show kindness
to animals...

"A rat is a pig
is a dog is a boy."

...animal idolatory...

In other words
man is superior
to the animals.

Man's rebellion against God takes many forms, but as king Solomon once observed, "There is nothing new under the sun." Such is the case with the environmental and animal "rights" movements that have captured a growing amount of media attention over the past two decades. These trendy and fashionable causes are really little more than a modern day manifestation of a sin that is rooted in antiquity, but they do threaten to further undermine the already eroded Christian foundations of our culture.

Environmental extremism and the animal "rights" movement are closely linked in terms of their core beliefs. While environmentalism encompasses a broad spectrum of issues, animal rights deals with only one: the relation between human beings and animals. This essay deals with the animal rights movement (really a movement within a movement), and in this first of a two part series, we'll look at the philosophy, origins, and influence of animal rights. In part two, we'll examine the movement's tactics and the inroads it has made in our culture.

Have you ever gone to the circus...?
Let me begin by asking you a few personal questions.(Don't be shy!) Have you ever gone to the circus or rodeo with your family? Do you own or wear leather belts, shoes, wallets, or purses? What about a fur coat or a parka with a fur-lined hood? Ever visited the zoo? Do you eat meat, poultry, or fish? What about honey or dairy products? Do you own pets of any sort? Do you ever wear clothing made of wool, silk, or goose down? Do you take comfort in swallowing a prescription knowing it was tested on a lab animal and found to be safe for humans before the pharmacist dispensed it to you?

...you are a primitive, arrogant, cruel, barbaric, murdering "speciesist,"

If you answered "yes" to any of the above, the animal "rights" movement would like you to know that you are a sick, exploitive, bloodthirsty person. Furthermore, you are a primitive, arrogant, cruel, barbaric, murdering "speciesist," not fit to lick the boots of a crustacean. Such kind words of encouragement are actually just a collection of animal rights rhetoric seen frequently in their publications and literature and used regularly against their enemies - namely, you and me.
Sounds a bit strong, doesn't it? It's the sort of ranting and raving you would expect from some fringe radical refugees from the 60s; greying hippy-dips that burnt-out a few too many brain cells on their last trip. Unfortunately, this is not the case. The grass roots popularity of the animal rights movement continues to grow rapidly with each passing year; it attracts a broad cross-section of society, and it is highly organized, heavily financed, and politically sophisticated.

Roll-over Marx and Lenin!
The membership of the larger animal rights groups is widely diversified and includes the young, the not so young, blue collar workers, professionals, the unemployed, politicians, and (surprise!) Hollywood celebrities. Did you ever wonder what became of the left wing "intelligentsia" following the humiliating collapse of the Soviet Union and its Communist puppet states? Well, they are alive and well, and they are continuing to promote the Communist ideals of state control over resources. The only things that have changed are the terminology they use, and the names of the organizations they belong to. Roll over Marx and Lenin! Today's trendy and leftist causes are animal rights and radical environmentalism.

Just how large and influential has the animal rights movement become? In the United States alone, it is estimated that there are over 7000 different animal rights advocacy groups. About 56 of these groups maintain fully staffed offices in Washington, D.C. to lobby and harass federal politicians. These offices employ over 700 people, and have a combined annual budget in excess of 219 million dollars. Some animal rights groups even employ professional fund-raising firms from New York and Los Angeles and spend over a million dollars annually on advertising alone. The largest North American animal rights group is People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (P.E.T.A.), which boasts a membership of over 350,000 people, an annual budget of over eight million dollars, and 65 full-time staff.

Most people "love" animals...
What is it about the animal rights movement that makes it so attractive to so many people? Most people "love" animals to varying degrees and hate the thought of them being treated with cruelty or violence. Animal rights groups are very aware of the public's emotional attachment to animals, and they exploit this fully, using emotive visual imagery whenever possible. A favourite tactic is to orchestrate or stage media "events." Seldom do reporters criticize or ask probing questions, let alone conduct anything that even remotely resembles investigative journalism. The "enemies" of animals are usually portrayed in the worst possible light: medical researchers are caricatured as "mad scientists who torture animals"; hunters as "bloodthirsty savages"; and the animal rights supporters are, of course, portrayed as righteous crusaders valiantly striving to save innocent animals.

From infancy, the animal rights movement seemed to realize that in order to gain popularity and public acceptance for their off-beat philosophies, they would need to associate themselves with the well-established and respectable animal welfare groups. In so doing, they spread the deception that animal "rights" are the same as animal welfare. The two are actually quite distinct and separate. Historically, animal welfare advocacy groups originated in England during the 19th century and appeared later in North America. Their goals were admirable and, more importantly, Biblically-based. These included encouraging the humane treatment of farm animals, monitoring the treatment of performing (i.e., circus or racetrack) animals, eliminating unnecessary laboratory testing, and neutering or spaying shelter animals.

God's intent has always been for man to show kindness to animals...
It should be clear that as Christians, we can and should embrace the concept of animal welfare. In Genesis 2:15, God gave what was Adam's first job and mankind's first responsibility. This was to "tend and keep" the garden of Eden, and it included responsible stewardship of all the resources God placed in the garden, whether plant or animal. Clearly, man was not to make unethical use of, waste, or despoil God's creation. God's intent has always been for man to show kindness to animals, as is revealed in His law: domestic animals were to share in the rewards of the harvest (Deut 25:4), to be included in the weekly Sabbath rest (Ex 23:12 and Lev 25:5-7), and to be treated with respect (Prov 12:10). Men were forbidden to kill both the mother and young of a wild animal together, apparently to prevent the destruction of an entire species (Deut 22:6-7).

he HSUS's National Law Enforcement Council, comprised of current and former law enforcement officers and prosecutors, helps combat animal crimes nationwide.

Members of the national council have shown leadership in protecting animals from neglect, violence, and other crimes, with an emphasis on animal cruelty, fighting, and poaching laws. Member activities may include supporting state and federal legislation that strengthens animal protection laws, promoting animal protection training opportunities for local law enforcement, and raising awareness of The HSUS's animal crimes rewards, tip lines, and other resources.
