It was a website called Conservative Reason which started the GoFundMe fund raising campaign with the intention of raising money for Kristen Lindsey the now notorious cat-killing vet.
As it happens the campaign was deleted by the GoFundMe website as it was in breach of their rules – a violation of their terms and conditions:
“which include prohibitions against “Campaigns in defense of formal charges of heinous crimes, including violent, hateful, or sexual acts”
Great, GoFundMe consider her cat killing a heinous crime. The Conservative Reason website makes a startling statement:
“Although Dr. Lindsey is an avid hunter and Christian, we’re not going to claim that this is an “attack on hunters” or an “attack on Christians.”
They admit that deleting the crowd funding campaign is not an attack on Christians. What concerns me is that the editor of Conservative Reason is almost certainly a Christian and that Lindsey is both a hunter and a Christian. How can a Christian defend such a nasty act of cat cruelty? A misguided attitude.
Are these two personal characteristics meant to go together: Christian and sport hunter? Aren’t Christians meant to be kind, caring individuals who respect all living creatures? Aren’t Christians meant to set high standards of integrity and morality? Apparently not.
Christians are no better and no worse than the rest of us, which makes me question the reason for being a Christian.
One person who left a comment on the Conservative Reason website says that Christians have the right to harvest animals. I disagree with that of course but it is irrelevant in this instance quite clearly.
The photo shows Kristen Lindsey and her mother. Her mother condones what her daughter did. There is a petition to remove her as county treasurer. They are both Republicans, apparently. I suppose that is obvious to Americans.
