Sen. Allen Christensen, R-North Ogden, should take some time to educate himself as to the brutality and violence of cockfighting and all forms of animal fighting for sport (Mar. 6, “Senate votes to make cockfights a felony”). I believe he will find that it is has been proven to be an activity that promotes violence, criminal activity and all forms of cruelty to both animals and humans. It is not in the nature of animals to be equipped with weapons, placed in an arena and bullied into fighting each other.
We all know his stance on abortion. To use the cruelty of other creatures as an excuse to promote his own opinion on that issue is bullying.
I respectfully request that he please consider a change in his tactics and gain more knowledge on any subject before putting forth misinformation.
