My Point is... The Foul of Fowl

(Continued)

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. —

The practice of cock fighting is not steeped in “traditional Christian and American family values,” as stated by the UGBA president.

Chickens were created for a food source — either by eggs or by the meat they supply. Factory farming is for the purpose of providing food to the people; cock fighting is a barbaric practice that thrives on alcohol, gambling and violence — none of which should be subjected to children, therefore excluding it as a “family” or “Christian” activity. Public hangings and executions were once “traditional” but they, too, were outlawed because they had no true gain for society as a whole. Neither does cock fighting.

Fowl whose sole purpose is to fight to the death is not a necessary component in today’s society.
