Slavery at Sea World

An animal rights group claims that killer whales—orcas--have the same rights as people. So they claim it's slavery for Sea World to keep the whales at their amusement parks.

 

PETA--People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, has filed a federal lawsuit to free the whales. It's just part of the animal rights movement.

 

If they win the lawsuit, what's next? You get sued by your dog and your cat and the caged birds go free.

 

No more leather; no more fur; no more fried chicken.

 

Things like this are happening elsewhere. Ecuador's constitution now says Nature has the same rights as people. Bolivia has created the Ministry of Mother Earth to sue people on behalf of Mother Earth.

 

The Bible says man was made to have dominion over the animals. Next thing you know, they'll sue God to have that reversed.
