So what are you trying to do here, gs001? Trying to show us that man's incomprehensible acts of cruelty against each other somehow belittle this story into meaning nothing? Two wrongs don't make a right. What you posted is horrible, and so is this. Maybe you should make a thread that deals with the Lama's atrocities.
No,it's just that some people feel that it's their duty(whether it's a political,religous or personal belief)to prevent suffering wherver they can and I'm not being pious here.If people sat on their arses and never did anything to change things for the better where would we be?FYI i've been involved in alot of things over the years that help people as I'm sure many people have.Compassion for animals does not cancel out compassion for humans.The two are not mutually exclusive.As for babies being bashed I used to work in an orthodox Jewish supermarket and the owners were telling me one day about their neighbours who had been in concentration camps inWW2 and how they had witnessed exactly what you described and how they still have nightmares to this day.When they told me this I had the same feelings of revulsion and horror and anger as described before, in fact I thought I was going to pass out there on the spot.

Out of curiosity do people resort to trying to save animals from the hands of mankind because mankind can not save itself? WHOA! let me correct that before I go to hell. "humankind"
Never mind babies having their heads splattered on trees while being flung around by the leg in front of thier mothers, or people being raped and tortured infront of loved ones and then later killed.
Is it an ideology of we cant fix THAT problem over there so we will try to take on THIS problem over here kind of thing?
A way of feeling like "you" the generic version speaking of the public) have some how effected a change and then feel like your making things better?
OK I know I cried wolf with a lot of trash talking I admit ... Sorry about all that I shouldnt act like an idiot I apologize and this question is really not meant to be a cutting remark.
Im honestly curious and hope someone can enlighten me please.

And the name...tis just who I am...a child of the fae...maybe that's why I'm sooo damn sensitive to this stuff.
