    Indeed. Some posters will get upset if a young animal is butchered but will practically cheer the slaughter of a child of the same age.

    It's a small step from animal cruelty to human cruelty, and vice versa.

    I'm quite within my rights to make my points. If you want a group cry about dogs, toddle off to Facebook. I'll continue to point out that a society that treats children like disposable commodities, will treat dogs similarly.

    That's a reasonable point.
