there is nothing glorifying about bullfighting. only cowardly lowlifes engage in this despicable act and shd be treated just like the bulls, with spears sticking out of them. this is barbaric and needs to be banned the worldwide.
This is not a sport or entertainment & by bringing children to animal fights is sending them the wrong message that abusing torturing & hurting animals is okay when nothing about animal abuse is okay & tradition or not this type of event needs to stop!
Tradition and Culture can embody the most cruel practices. Evolution should now be emphasizing increasingly higher (moral,ethical,aesthetic) forms of consciousness.
Idealism seems almost smothered in a world dominated by marketeers and exploitative consumerism. This is an impoverished legacy to the future generation. We must work to enrich the humanity and vision of our heritage.
They call this SPORT? what a bunch of heartless cruel inhumane creeps that enjoy this. Must STOP.
I've been horrified by bullfights since I first saw one on a PBS documentary: horrified and surprised that this inglorious *tradition* continues in a present-day civilization when we should know better; when we should understand the sentience of all beings, and work towards creating empathy instead of cruelty. Not only is this so-called *tradition* cruel, but it's unfair, it's rigged. Before the event, the bull is drugged, starved, blinded by petroleum jelly in his eyes, has his horns...

Not only is this so-called *tradition* cruel, but it's unfair, it's rigged. Before the event, the bull is drugged, starved, blinded by petroleum jelly in his eyes, has his horns shaved and his hooves painfully cut--and then the picadors come in and start the blood-letting to be sure the bull is even more weakened and helpless. Finally, in waltzes the matador, a mincing would-be hero in tights and sequins, acting as if he's actually about to do something brave. Brave? I don't think so. And as if this isn't enough, the church actually participates, blessing this killer and praying for his safety as he proceeds to mutilate and murder this helpless victim, this being created by God, not to be an amusement for an unthinking audience, but to live in peace on this earth He created. Isn't it time, finally, to put an end to this?
Just reading this has horrified me and made me angry as ever at bullfighting. I couldn't agree more that in this day and age people should know better and create empathy rather than cruelty towards animals. They are living creatures just like us. Respect their feelings. WAKE UP WORLD!
Can I quote you on FB?
WOW Cinnamon! Ignorance once again. GOD DIDN'T CREAT SHIT. Here's why.....THERE IS NO GOD! You're contradicting yourself when you talk about being horrified that this "tradition" is still going on and the fact that the church backs it and you still believe in your "imaginary friend god". Religeon is tradition. Tradition is stupid. Stupidity breeds ignorance. Ignorance gives way to hatred. See where I'm going with this? Bullfighting is STILL happening BECAUSE OF RELIGEON! WHAT DOES THAT BOIL...

Religeon is tradition. Tradition is stupid. Stupidity breeds ignorance. Ignorance gives way to hatred. See where I'm going with this? Bullfighting is STILL happening BECAUSE OF RELIGEON! WHAT DOES THAT BOIL DOWN TO? In YOUR bible,(which was written by ignorant men and IS NOT the "word" of your imaginary friend) it tells us that animals and WOMEN are "property" and that man can do whatever he wants with us. So, this SURPRISES YOU that this shit is still happening? REALLY? Ignorance I can work with but you CAN'T FIX STUPID. All religeous people need to abandon that shit and live in reality. ALL the bullshit you do on this planet will not be "forgiven". Peices of shit will die and still be dead pieces of shit. It's up to every individual to do the right thing and put an end to animal suffering NOW! Animals are NOT OURS TO EAT, WEAR, EXPERIMENT ON OR ABUSE FOR "ENTERTAINMENT". Once you people abandon the STUPID, OUTDATED, AND USELESS BIBLE, THE WORLD WOULD BE A BETTER PLACE!!!
Anyone who kills OR abuses any person OR ANIMAL SHOULD BE TREATED LIKE A CRIMINAL AND PUT TO DEATH IMMEDIATELY. There should be NO regard for THEIR LIFE if they have NO regard for anyone elses! NO QUESTIONS, NO EXCUSES, NO FORGIVING! END OF STORY. p.s. That douchebag jesus didn't write the golden rule. He stole that too. I guess it doesn't matter because he never existed either! Stupid sheep......
It IS dreadful. I don't know about the Creature of God belief but the human race has an ethical obligation to eradicate cruelty. The ability to empathize is a core attribute. Consciousness raising must be on-going. Thanks to Cinnamon for highlighting these vitally important issues.
nothing in a big nothingness....
Fact is you are entitled to believe what you want, you and all else have that freedom. Why would you want to choose to be so cruel to another human being with your words. There are cruelty all over, to animals as we see here and to people the horrors of this world.... surely you can show kindness even if you chose not to believe in Jesus. Leave others to be who they choose to be. ENOUGH OUT OF YOUR CRUEL NASTY MOUTH.
Rita Lemkuil - WOW!!! Really??!! ....... O_o I do believe that everyone who abuses/hurts/kills animals and people should be justly punished but the rest of what you said......... to each their own. I, personally believe in God & Jesus. I agree with what Connie Pieterse said!! Shame on you, Rita for being so nasty.....
@Rite Lemkuil: No matter if we are religious or not, if we believe in God, or not, I think we can all agree that bullfighting is NOT acceptable as an activity for human beings. We can all agree that this type of behaviour is cruel, needless and makes no sense for "entertainment" purposes. We can agree change is needed, education is needed to teach people that animals aren't on the earth for us to simply do as we please to them without regard to their well-being. Agreed, yes?
Los humanos son los ùnicos seres que matan por placer. ¡No a las corridas de toros, no màs actos perversos contra quienes no pueden defenderse!
I've never been to a rodeo, much less a bullfight. If I did go to a bullfight, I'd be sure to bring a permit to conceal my gun. Then, when the matador goes in to make his first move and add more pain to the bull, I'd shoot the bull to give him release from the torture. Sometimes, it's far better to die than to suffer from the cruelty and heartlessness of idiots.
Bulls have no chance in arenas. Please give them chance in causes.
Frankly, I disagree with banning anything that is not part of US culture. This is arrogant cultural imperialism at its worst. What gives us the holier than thou attitude that we can impose our values (right, wrong, or indifferent) on another society where they do not share the same values as us. I personally don't like bullfighting, cockfighting, dogfighting, but I'm not about to support a bunch of loud mouthed crusaders denigrate another society simply because we don't like what they do. That's just wrong and myopic.
bastard de merde the human.
