Pope Francis, please tell the South Korean Catholic Priests to stop eating dogs!

This is a partial summary of OhMyNews reported on August 18, 2014: “Pope, please tell the Catholic Priests to stop eating dog meat” Animal Activists raise objection to the Korean Catholics “교황님, 신부님들에게 개고기 그만 드시라고 해주세요” [주장] 동물보호활동가들, 한국 가톨릭에 이의제기하다

In South Korea, not only are many Catholic priests fans of dog meat, they often encourage their congregation to go out and eat dog meat and even sell dog meat at their church bazaars. Fed up with their hypocrisy, members of several animal rights groups in South Korea protested when Pope Francis came to visit Korea. These are some of the photos from their August 16th protest along the Pope’s parade route in Seoul. Their banner, written in Spanish, the Pope’s native language, says “El Papa, los sacerdotes y los creyentes, por favor, pogan un fin a la matanza y consumo de perros.” The English translation reads, “Pope, priests and followers, please put an end to the slaughter and consumption of dogs.”

This group also plans to send an official letter to the Catholic Bishop’s Conference of Korea urging them to stop eating dog meat.

The Pope, priests and believers, please put an end to the slaughter and consumption of dogs. 교황님 퍼레이드 때 펼쳐든 플래카드. 교황님의 모국어 스페인어로 쓰였다. 교황님 신부님들에게 개고기 그만 드시라고 말씀 좀 전해주세요. ⓒ전채은

– 그럼 보양식은.
“개고기를 잘 먹습니다. 제 취미가 외국인 신부들 개고기 먹이기죠. 특히 프랑스 신부들요. 불어에 신앙(foi)이라는 단어가 간이란 뜻의 푸아(fois)와 발음이 비슷해요. 음식 잘 먹느냐 물어보면 내 신앙이 가톨릭 아니냐? 푸아(간) 옆에 있는 위도 마찬가지로 가톨릭이어야지라고 조크를 던지죠. 하하 좀 썰렁하네요. 프랑스에선 통했는데(웃음).”

    He’s not a real Christian. The consumption of any animal with a paw is forbidden in Leviticus. He cannot fool God. He will burn in hell for eternity for this.

    To think this priest supports torture of animals through while still alive are being burned, skinned, boiled and cut up to death. What kind of man of God supports this? One who is an imposter. He is a hypocrite, because God Himself tells us to care for animals and in Proverbs 12:10New International Version (NIV)

    10 The righteous care for the needs of their animals,
    but the kindest acts of the wicked are cruel. in other words, we are commissioned to take care of animals and that even the perverted kindness is cruel such as the dog meat trade.

    Pope Francis – Today is 8-4-18. This controversy is not going away. You MUST address it! What people fail to mention is the demonic treatment, the torture of each dog victim. Everyone knows it but they forget to mention that the dogs are tortured before their brutal slaughter. They are butchered ALIVE. skinned ALIVE, disembowled ALIVE, cooked, boiled, torched, electrocuted, BBQ’d on a spit , ALIVE. Thousands of dogs are brutally treated in depraved, sadistic ways which must emanate from Hell. This is the work of Satan. All the grotesque ways of causing agony are thought up by these spawns of hell. And, yet, we have not heard you raise YOUR voice against these evils. It is estimated that each year, in So. Korea, some 15,000 or more innocent dogs are used in these ways and that Catholics are the biggest consumers! It is known that you were publicly made aware of this. I myself have written you, sending it to cultura@cultura.va. many times with no acknowledgement. When are you to ACT
