Noted, signed and tweeted. Isn't there a place in the bible that tells you to be a good steward of the lands and animals that God gave you? I am sure there is, and I know that there is a passage about the Lamb laying down with the Lion. God didn't mean Satan...he meant a Lion. So why is this man, who should know his bible, using a Lion as a symbol of Satan? BECAUSE HE IS WRONG, THAT'S WHY!!!

Sadly there are too many people interpreting the bible THEIR way without realizing that the Bible is GOD'S word...not THEIRS. These "people" are displaying Christianity as a sideshow freakshow. I am strongly against this type of behavior....for the sake of God's creatures that they are abusing AND for the sake of those people being let astray by a "circus act".

Signed. Please don't think all of us Christians would DREAM of doing things like this. We are working hard for God and for animals! I truly believe that God would be horrified at what people do in His name!!!
