Tony Perkins: California Values Dogs More Than People

Just in via hate group leader Tony Perkins:

If he sensed the irony, he didn’t show it. “We want to be a no-kill state,” Governor Gavin Newsom (D-Calif.) said. It was a jarring statement coming from Newsom, leader of one of the most prolific taxpayer-funded abortion operations in the country. But of course, Gavin wasn’t talking about people — he was talking about pets.

His budget, which Newsom unveiled at a press conference, happens to include a new $50-million line-item for animal shelters. The goal, he insists, is to stop euthanizing dogs and cats. Unborn babies and dying patients, on the other hand, are fair game. “It’s time to promote adoptions,” Judie Mancuso explained, one of the groups that lobbied California for the money — just not, unfortunately, for unwanted humans.

“California is famous for misplaced priorities,” FRC’s David Closson agreed on “Washington Watch,” “but this takes that cake. We want to be a ‘no kill’ state, he says… [when] you can abort a baby up until the moment that that baby is delivered. If you’re wondering what inverted morality looks like, this is it.”

God created humans to be distinct. He gave them dominion. That doesn’t mean we don’t respect God’s world and everything in it. I love the outdoors, and I think we have a stewardship responsibility. But if you lose focus on the order of God’s creation, you start worshipping the earth. You start placing animals above people.
