"Jesus Also Came For The Animals"
GREAT INTERNATIONAL DEMONSTRATION IN WÜRZBURG
Over 1,200 animal rights advocates came together under the motto, "Jesus Also Came For The Animals" and called for a change in our relationship with the animals. They marched in protest against the suffering and torment of the animals on the factory farms, in slaughterhouses, laboratories and on the battlefields of the hunters in woods and fields.
JESUS ALSO CAME FOR THE ANIMALS
It was something Würzburg had never seen: a parade on Easter Saturday, in the midst of the busiest shopping hour, with over 1,200 animal rights advocates from many countries carrying countless banners and posters through the inner city. They protested against the suffering and torment of the animals on factory farms, in slaughterhouses, laboratories and in the battlefields of the hunters in woods and fields.
Along with Christmas and Thanksgiving, Easter is one of the greatest slaughtering feasts of our modern world. The torment of animals being mercilessly slaughtered for the sake of a Christian holiday reaches crass proportions on this date.
Jesus of Nazareth was betrayed and killed by those who murder animals. Today, Christ is betrayed by the people who promote the murder of animals in His name. For major church holidays such as Easter and Christmas have been turned into a slaughtering feast that costs the life of billions of animals.
GERMANY'S LARGEST EASTER DEMO
On that weekend, the traditional Easter freedom marches took place in many Germany cities. In Berlin approximately 650 demonstrated (MDR Info, 17.4.2006). The largest Easter march took place in Frankfurt with 1,000 participants (B5, 17.4.2006)
"In Würzburg almost 1,500 people demonstrated for peace with the animals, thus making it Germany's largest Easter demo in 2006." so reported Jürgen Gauchel, one of the farmers from Gut Greussenheim which had organized this event.
The Market Place in Würzburg on Easter Sunday:
Easter-time, Christians the world over remember the suffering and death of
Jesus. But was the crucifixion of Jesus for the sake of people alone? Did Christ
suffer merely for the people?
