Listening to the bible could have saved Seaworld trainer.

Brian Fischer, of the American Family Association would like to remind us all that the Old Testament enshrines a moral responsibility to kill an animal if it has been involved in the death of another person. The failure of SeaWorld to follow this "Judeo-Christian" edict resulted in the recent death of one of its Orca trainers.

Fisher also ominously notes that the same section of the bible also says that if the owner does not kill such an animal, and the animal kills again, then the owner should be stoned. SeaWorld management, look out!

The AFA might be on to something here. I mean, just think about how many potential future crimes could be avoided if we started stoning anyone who works on the Sabbath. And wouldn't the world be a much better place with a few less shellfish-eaters?
