Anti-whaling and Pro-whaling Supporters Unable to Have a Dialogue

The International Whaling Commission (IWC) is facing a challenging year as pro-whaling and anti-whaling supporters are unable to have a dialogue and reach a compromise.

It is evident that we live in a fallen world and that perfection is impossible, but trying our best by the grace of God is honoring and glorifying to our Creator and brings reconciliation to Creation. It’s important, however, that anger and resentment do not stand in the way of compassion and mercy. Shouting and blaming rarely achieve anything.
