Dear God ... a movie EVERYONE should watch ...

After listening to the interview with the filmmaker on the way to Portage a couple of Sundays ago, Ms. H. put in the request to rent the movie "The Cove". This weekend we got a copy from our local video store ...

OH DEAR GOD !!! There is NO spin that can be put on this, and the continued Japanese Whaling for "research" that justifies human treatment of the oceans ... I used to think that Paul Watson and The Sea Shepherd Society were fringe crack pots ... today, I'm not so certain ... they may still be on the fringe, and they might still be a bit cracked ... BUT the issue of our treatment of the oceans and the creatures who share them is frightening to consider ...

Humanity needs to learn to tread more lightly on this fragile planet of ours ... and it begins with our treatment of the whales both large and small ...

If you haven't seen The Cove - WHAT THE HECK ARE YOU WAITING FOR??

Well-known evangelical Tony Campolo has long advocated that the singing of the whale is its hymn to God, and that all of the creation has its own hymn of praise and that as species become extinct at human hands we extinguish the songs of praise from creation to God. He often quotes some scripture to back this up, but I can't remember which one.

Peace,

Adam

Thank you very much for commenting on this documentary. I watched The Cove last night as a result of your suggestion and was deeply troubled by the what I saw. To think something so barbaric still happens in 2010 is unbelievable.
