She's Alive... Beautiful... Finite... Hurting... Worth Dying for.

I found this quite interesting and moving. I'll let you draw your own conclusions. A couple of things for the theologically sensitive. Theologian and ethicist Michael Northcott claims that some in the early church referred to 'mother earth' so it isn't necessarily pagan. Secondly, it is true that people poach in order to make ends meet, and that the income from poaching is often greater than they can earn any other way, yet killing other humans to protect this trade crosses a line that should not be crossed.

  1. Not just the early church. Also Bonhoeffer.

    And, I would argue, both Paul (Romans 8.22) and the author of Genesis (Gen 1.11, 24).

    Anthropomorphism ≠ deification (I've been planning a post on this theme for a while).
