CALL OFF THE HUNT

Catalyst June Issue 1998

The Catholic League takes no position on animal rights, though we do observe that the more proper term is animal welfare; only humans possess the rational faculties upon which moral judgments can be made, and are therefore alone in their rightful possession of rights. In any event, we do take a position on bigotry, hence our interest on commentating on The Fund for Animals.

It seems that this group doesn’t like the fact that some priests hunt deer in Michigan. What they like to do is protest this action by dressing up as priests and nuns and mock Catholics as they leave church. There have been no reports of ministers or rabbis receiving such treatment, forcing us to conclude that either a) ministers and rabbis don’t hunt deer or b) The Fund for Animals needs to hunt down the bigots in their midst.
