Donkey basketball fundraisers send kids the message that it's OK to abuse and humiliate those who are weaker than they are. Children who are exposed to animal abuse are taught the dangerous lesson that cruelty is acceptable. After an extensive study of the links between cruelty to animals and human abuse, experts Stephen R. Kellert and Alan R. Felthous concluded, "The evolution of a more gentle and benign relationship in human society might be enhanced by our promotion of a more positive and nurturing ethic between children and animals."
Schools from coast to coast have stopped hosting cruel donkey basketball fundraisers because they want to help nurture kind kids, not bullies. The U.S. National Parent-Teacher Association Congress states, "Children trained to extend justice, kindness, and mercy to animals become more just, kind, and considerate in their [interactions] with each other."

Cruel, and so many people make fun of donkeys when they are wonderful animals. And many of these people are supposedly Christians.When I was growing up at my Catholic School, they had Donkey Basketball once or twice. What a shameful thing to do to Christ's humble steed.
