Cecil's hunter vindicated - and rightly so

The Minnesota dentist and big-game hunter who killed Cecil the Lion while on a July hunting expedition was held up as the most hated man in America. Well, this most hated man in America won't face charges in the beloved big cat's death, a Zimbabwean minister said Monday.

The dentist's life was virtually destroyed by the hunting ordeal, which has been ruled to have been completely legal. So where is the apology to him? Will someone be held accountable for what this man had to go through, from the public shaming and threats, to impacting his business and having to go into hiding, along with his family members?

Am not holding my breath. He is still being viciously vilified. This man's entire life was turned upside down, but some are arguing that just because something is legal, it doesn't make it moral and so, therefore, the witch hunt and sabotaging of the dentist is justified. 

I wish these anti-hunting people could apply that same logic to the daily slaughtering of human beings in the womb. It's legal. But it's not moral. Where's the outrage from the lion lovers? But to them, what's a human baby worth compared with a fuzzy-wuzzy little lion?

The hypocrisy is mind boggling. Let's pray for enlightenment where there is darkness.
