Noted, signed, twittered and google shared. I have signed other petitions regarding this as well. If people cannot stop their sick and twisted need to eat everything exotic knowing full well that they are eating an innocent animal then the demand will continue and the killers will continue to meet that demand. It makes me furious.

They are caged, whipped, made to prance in circles and stand on stools; confined behind bars and forced to pose for pictures with drunks outside night clubs, and now...this outrage! I stand with those who are sickened by the thought.

Some of you may be interested.

If you're not, that's ok.

I'm sharing not arguing.

I have been researching the early Christian writings which the Catholic Church did not admit. Gospel of the Holy Twelve has an interesting story of Yahshua (Jesus) and the lion. In fact, there's a lot of supportive information denied by Constantine and the "Correctors of Scripture"' including that Yahshua was a vegetarian. Constantine loved his late night steaks and alcohol so the "Correctors" left out lots of such fascinating and supportive info. Their job was to invent and put in what was acceptable and take out what wasn't.

Of course, such was not considered a crime at the time. The authorities thought the less the people knew, the better. It gave them greater power and money. Same as in our day!

I love this one.

18. And on a certain day as he was passing by a mountain side nigh unto the desert, there met him a lion and many men were pursuing him with stones and javelins to slay him.
19. But Iesus rebuked them, saying, Why hunt ye these creatures of God, which are more noble than you? By the cruelties of many generations they were made the enemies of man who should have been his friends.
20. If the power of God is shown in them, so also is shown his long suffering and compassion. Cease ye to persecute this creature who desireth not to harm you, see ye not how he fleeth from you, and is terrified by your violence?
21. And the lion came and lay at the feet of Iesus, and shewed love to him; and the people were astonish , and said, Lo, this man loveth all creatures and hath power to command even these beasts from the desert, and they obey him.

Where are all the Christian nutters? They should be out there protesting that "Biblically" only meat from herbivores should be consumed by humans, never from a carnivore. Oh but then you wouldn't be eating prawns and crabs or other animals that feed on dead, rotting bodies. Then again if you are Chinese. If it breathes and moves, eat it.
If it doesn't same rule.

I was shocked & horrified to learn that the "African Lion Burgers" were offered by the several restaurants in the USA. Also one special chef by the name Jason Febres has offered some cooked bits & pieces of Africa Lions body parts. Guess what we many of us would love to see the Cannibles are cutting this Chef's body parts into bits & pieces and cooking with some flvours. So the Mesa, Arizona, Wichita, Kansas all of those places Morons who are awaiting to taste African Lions meat can taste this newly created chef Jason Febres bits & pices cooked body parts too. How about that.
