Eating Dolphins vs. Cows

In Taiji, Japan, part of their tradition is to eat dolphins, which many people believe it's barbaric. Ric O'Barry, who trained five dolphins to play "Flipper" on the TV series of that name, goes even as far as to dress as a woman or wear a large surgical mask to disguise his Western identity on trips to spots overlooking the ocean.

Residents of Taiji know that they offend Western sensibilities by eating dolphins, but they claim that outsiders have no more right to tell them to stop eating dolphins than they would have to demand that Westerners stop slaughtering chickens or cows.

Reality hits when we are faced with the ethical relativism of humanity. While some people consider barbaric to eat dolphins, these same people have no problems eating other animals, such as cows or pigs, who have even been raised under intensive confinement and unimaginable suffering. Until we face our own shortcomings at being stewards of God's Creation, this planet will know no peace. It's only when we show compassion, mercy and love to all Creatures that we'll bring reconciliation on Earth.
