Hunting Is Not Murder
If you're a hunter, you've heard it before. "Hunting is murder! Hunters are murderers! The Bible says 'Thou shalt not kill'! So hunters are murdering millions of animals!"
Anywhere hunters interface with animal rights advocates, hunters face that kind of flawed reasoning. Facebook is rampant with it. Some critics of hunting even believe hunters should face severe punishment for killing an animal.
My June 17 column in the Jamestown Gazette clarifies this issue, explaining that "kill" in the Sixth Commandment is not the same as "murder." Check out "Hunting Is Not Murder" and find out what the Sixth Commandment is really about.
