By now you’ve probably heard about Ellen Degeneres’ meltdown on her show. If you haven’t, watch it below (I know it’s over four minutes in length, but you really need to see it to believe it.). I have just a few comments that follow the video.
My first thought after watching that was… what is wrong with our society?! We have millions of babies being murdered every day in America by abortion yet there is that kind of sentiment over a DOG?!
My second thought was what happens when people reject the true God. Consider what is written in Romans 1:21-23…
For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles. (ESV)
What happens when people reject the True Jehovah God is that they become fools. They can’t think properly… and they don’t even realize it! Then, because they don’t worship the True God, they worship anything and everything else… including irrational animals.
Third, I’m sure Ellen’s emotion was to a great degree over the saddness that the little kids had over losing the dog… but isn’t there a better solution than a complete emotional meltdown? Buy them another dog. Buy them another dog just like that one. Read the contract before you sign it. I’ve heard that the pet adoption agency received death threats after Ellen’s show. I wonder if Ellen feels guilty about that?
To me the whole thing is amazingly stupid. But that is the society we live in. Whales, dogs, and furry animals are of more value to those who are “enlightened” than the elderly, sick, and unborn babies.
I could rant on and on and on… but that would give more time to this than it deserves.
My first thought was “why did the hairstylist not fill out the paperwork and get the dog.” I understand that today’s update on the story stated that her children are under 14 years of age which the adoption agency does not allow. This sounds like a crazy rule that could be waived. I am reminded too of a program I saw not long ago that had a teenager from Africa brought to America by a family, and he could not believe a grocery store (much less a Pet Store) that carried so much food for animals when people in his country are starving. Where do we start changing the morals/values in our society ?????
A friend of mine whose son wanted to adopt a dog was required to have a home study before the adoption could
be approved. He was turned down because he is a doctor and has irregular hours. He adopted a golden retriever
and now has to take the dog to a dog psychiatrist because he is not obedient and does not interact well
with other dogs and people.
