"Cowboy Church"? It is disturbing that so many people use religion to justify cruelty, abuse, and violence. Ironically, my mother warned me about baptists when I was in elementary school. My father insisted on Catholicism, My mother told me to never let any baptists know I was "catholic". In reality, I have always been closer to Buddhism.

Poor animals, my heart breaks daily for the cruelty they have to endure at our hands when all they ask for is love and kindness and in return show loyalty and unconditional love.

Cowboy churches?! You have to take your cruelty to church, too! You should be on your knees begging for forgiveness, you hypocrites! You do this in the name of God? Really, and have the nerve to hate the Taliban and alleged terrorists?! You are doing your cruelty in the name of God, just like they do? So, what's the difference between the two of you?! What happened, beating up cows, horses and your wives and girlfriends wasn't enough? Now you have to pick on the little burro! You guys are going to go down hard when you time comes, unless you find another way to get that testosterone checked and controlled, and see a psychologist to help you understand that you don't have to beat up and kill everything to make you fulfill your role as a MAN. This is not what makes you a man. And try another church, one that preaches love, understanding and the love and care of those who can't protect themselves, those who are smaller than you, those who might love you and see that love is what makes you fulfilled, not murder.

Christians they call themselves, no, they are of Satan, they are evil. What a disgrace to the good Christians who are loyal and humble and do care for animals. I say, that church need to be burned down to the ground with the roach abusers in it. Don't worry everyone, their day is coming. The Lord sees and he will revenge. They have also used the Lord's name in vain by doing such acts towards the animals. A church should never be looked upon as it has now by what they've done. God trust me, will deal with them. His word never comes back void. I hope I hear about it because I will be clapping my hands so loud and actually grab a beer, (something I don't normally drink) but I will this time once I hear revenge has taken place. They deserve to burn in hell.

Update From the Petition Author:

Morning,

On Eden Tx Event web page they have an addendum note that no burro roping will take place. They can add anything to a web page. I HAVE REQUESTED A FORMAL WRITTEN NOTICE SIGNED BY AN EDEN TX CITY OFFICIAL THAT THE BURRO ROPING EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED. Not just that it is not taking place as that can be construed that it wasn't scheduled in the first place and they are just noting its not taking place. If they state it is cancelled it is admitting it was on the scheduled event list, which it was.

I will keep you posted. Remember there is an exclusive Burro only rodeo in October we need to get cancelled as well. I am hoping that the pressure from this petition will spur (no pun intended!) them on to cancel it. If not look forward to a specific petition targeting that rodeo.

Thanks Di

This is an inhumane 'sport', and by what sounds like a religious group makes it further distasteful!

Noted, signed, tweeted, shared. No reason to abuse animals, and somehow it's worse if a church does it.

How can these particular Church justify supporting blatant and wanton cruelty for the sake of 'fun, sport and entertainment' Are they the same Church members that would watch witch-burning or public hangings???

Donkeys are so sweet, and it tears my heart out to read about this cruelty.
This has to stop IMMEDIATELY!

Religion, and the cruelty, ignorance and bigotry it perpetuates, is what has held back humanity for thousands, nay tens of thousands of years. Until Religion is roped, drawn and quartered, all species and the Universe itself will suffer. Evangelicals that espouse a haploid zombie, but actually worship $$$, are the ring leaders in our demise.

If you have men who will exclude any of God's creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men. ---St. Francis of Assisi

Our God/Creator must be furious with us. These are 'Christians' are far from practicing their religion when they promote animal abuse. Shame on these hypocrites!

signed and noted. this is absolutely disgusting. what gets me most is that these people claim to know God and love Him and yet He would be looking down in shame over this. God is a compassionate God and He cares about all of the creatures He created, and I don't understand how Christians can miss that so much.

This is so far removed from the Christian message of love and compassion. This "church" should be ashamed of promoting such barbaric and cruel behaviour.
