"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

Cecil the Lion - Killed by a Minnesota Dentist.



I think dentists maybe make too much money.

Cecil the lion – the most famous creature in one of Zimbabwe's national parks – was killed by an American hunter who has boasted about shooting a menagerie of animals with his bow and arrow, The Telegraph can reveal.
Walter James Palmer, a dentist from Minnesota, is believed to have paid £35,000 to shoot and kill the much-loved lion with a bow and arrow. The animal was shot on July 1 in Hwange National Park. Two independent sources have confirmed the hunter's identity to the paper, which has also seen a copy of the relevant hunting permit. - Finish reading here. - Telegraph

The lion was lured out of the park and shot with a bow and arrow.  Rich people spend a ton of money to have these hunts set up.  The hunter doesn't risk much - the hunt is unfair to begin with - and unnecessary killing at that.  Of course Palmer did not know the lion was a park animal and protected...  even after the kill?  Who knows?  What a wicked thing to do.

It's wrong.

Big man Palmer with leopard.

  2. In the misty days of yore, those majestic beasts were hunted by Kings of noble birth and worth. To have been killed by a tooth picker is beneath Cecil's majesty and splendor.

    He was a real beauty indeed.

    It is sad he is gone

  3. Apparently he has an insatiable appetite for trophies - he's been in trouble with the law in Wisconsin for killing bear.

    1. He best be careful then since I have read stories of science fiction where we are the "prized trophies" for all the futuristic world to see. I just watched an episode of Japanese animation (of which I am a fan) last night titled, "The Human chair."

      Really gory.

  4. What an a-hole (and my family hunts, ) He needs to be slowly lowered into a pit of hungry Lions.

    1. Tom Brady is not lying. His cell phone story is true but Mrs Clinton on the other hand ... see - it's a vast right wing conspiracy.

      Tom Brady would never tell a lie.

  5. Who would open his/her mouth to this obsessed psychopath? Isn't going to the dentist stressful enough?
