When killer whales kill: A biblical view ~ By Ellis Washington

In Ellis Washington's column, he explains the theological order of humans versus animals, known as Natural Law, and how progressivism and Darwinism have perverted the Judeo-Christian views.
The anti-Christian view rooted in the ideas of the progressive movement is controlling today. Progressivism is a diabolical philosophy that since the 1890s has propagated such perverse public policies as: the welfare state, eugenics, forced sterilization, abortion, Marxism, radical environmentalism, pragmatism, utilitarianism, feminism, socialism, naturalism, animal rights – all within the paradigm of social Darwinism.

The sacred worth of humans has been deconstructed into a cold cost-benefit analysis of progressive economists.

In the long run we are all dead.

~ John Maynard Keynes, progressive economist
It has been a little over a week since the tragic death of Dawn Brancheau, a veteran trainer at SeaWorld in Florida who was killed by a serial killer whale named, "Tilikum."

Eyewitnesses said that Dawn did not accidentally fall into the tank of the animal as officials from SeaWorld originally claimed, but that while the trainer wasn't looking the killer whale grabbed her hair and mercilessly mauled her in the water. SeaWorld quickly revised their storyline of the tragic accident:
SeaWorld acknowledged two hours later that Tilikum had grabbed Brancheau by her ponytail and yanked her into the water. The park then made its head animal trainer available to the media to explain and defend its methods of training and maintaining its whales.
These unscrupulous acts on SeaWorld's part are beyond the pale. The park must be held accountable, and Tilikum the killer whale should be immediately destroyed.

This euthanasia policy isn't without precedent. I remember reading about a mountain lion that had killed a jogger in California. Officials tracked the offending animal down and immediately killed it so that the public could be put at ease when out enjoying the wilderness.

Other stories of killer sharks, bears, lions, tigers, bulls, etc., that had to be hunted down and destroyed because these wild beasts killed people are not uncommon in America and around the world. Where did people get the idea that animals which kill people must immediately be destroyed? Well, the same place we got the ideas found in natural law, the common law, the Federalist Papers, the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights – it all came from the Bible.

Perhaps surprising to most people is the fact that God has explicit commandments on how to deal with animals that kill humans. Early Catholic theologians like St. Augustine, St. Thomas Aquinas and others followed a natural-law philosophy of the universe that animals should be hunted and eaten by others. This was reflected in their theology.
