Despicable trend: Killing animals for Christ
DU TOIT and his family are fundamentalist Christians who believe that it’s Cool to Kill for Christ, and they have created a disgusting “Provider for Christ Hunting Adventure” business.
To support the creation of new and more energized Providers for Christ, and the families of men and women based on Biblical principals.
This is done by killing animals including Impala, Blesbok, and Blue Wildebeest, but provision is made for those wanting to slaughter bigger beasts.
This is what you’ll get if you sign up for one of Du Toit’s killing sprees (cost: $2,395 per hunter):
Transfer from the airport to our camp, accommodations, and meals, worship and Christian seminars by local ministers. (You may bring your own to share with us as well). Ground transportation during your Safari.
Hunting of one animal to include choice of: Impala, Blesbok, Blue Wildebeest (up-gradable and additional animals available). Trophy skins/horn’s/skulls remain yours. (Taxidermy and shipping/dipping is your responsibility. We will facilitate trophy preparation and salting).
Oh, and as a bonus you’ll get to:
Minister to the poor at an orphanage and squatters camp with a Christian organization. This will involve bringing your meat to the camps and using your other talents to help the children. Feel free to bring needed items such as candy, clothing sports equipment, and medical supplies. These are always in short supply and greatly appreciated.
You will be invited to worship with the people in the camps. They are learning to love Jesus Christ and will be energized by your support. If you have special talents and want to use them, let us know and we will try our best to facilitate you in using them for God.
Commented this outraged blogger:
It’s stuff like this that gives Christians a bad name. If the people need food, clothing, and supplies and you can provide it for them, that’s a wonderful and kind thing. But to stuff it down their throat with a dose of cultural and religious imperialism–revolting. And using a religion as a justification for an expensive sport shooting vacation is just creepy.
The rise of child, elder, and LGBT abuse/deaths in Uganda and other African nations has been directly linked to American evangelicals preaching a violent, hate-filled form of Christianity (which sorta goes against the idea of Jesus being the Prince of Prince and loving thy neighbor).
Add to that the loss of indigenous culture and tradition and wildlife – that’s not “progress,” it’s cultural extinction. Minister to the poor, help the needy, but don’t freaking shoot things and then evangelize and seek to covert by being Bwana.
A petition has been set up to shut down this hideous business. Regrettably it totally excludes the religious element.
