And
God said
to them...
have domininon
over
the fish of the sea
and
over the birds
of the air.
[Genesis 2:28]
*************************
"I hope they're not gonna
talk about that, AGAIN... tonight,
LORD."

"What,
child."

"Those DUCKS!
That....DUCK dynasty!
Those people make me NAUSEOUS!"

"Ah.
Yes,
My beloved."

"I think anyone who HUNTS... should
have a boa constrictor wrapped
around their ........MANHOOD."

[PATIENT NOD.]

"They talk about how MANLY... these
men are......a REAL man is KIND
to animals!"

[SIGH.]
"I understand,
My precious."

"No, You DON'T!
You treat animals horribly,
TOO!"

[PATIENT SILENCE.]
[BECKON to an angel who has
just arrived from earth.]

"You probably LIKE......
these hunters!"

"Child,
I AM the LORD."

"EXACTLY!
Why do You allow such cruelty
of innocent woodland CREATURES?"

"I give free will,
My child."

"I'm TIRED of that excuse!
If You really loved animals,
You would do something about it!"

[SIGH.]
[BECKON once more, to the angel
who is teeter-tottering on the doorstep
of the Throne Room: too timid
to come inside. The angel's name
is Mush-Hearted, and he is carrying
a small mallard duck.]

"It's DIFFERENT if the guy is
poor and has to hunt for his
own FOOD....but, most hunters
are rich and just do it for the
PLEASURE."

Mush-Hearted is sniffing. The small duck
has been shot, and blood is dripping
from his little mangled neck.

"The thing is.....HUNTING
makes a person INSENSITIVE
to the suffering of OTHERS...
and that is very frightening,
LORD."

[SILENCE.]
Mush-Hearted drops to his knees
and begins sobbing uncontrollably.
The Guard-Angel, named Guardisimo,
immediately nods and bows to
the LORD, and tromps over to
where Mush-Hearted is kneeling
in a puddle of wrinkled gauzy-
angelic gown, and soft mallard
feathers, and a few angelic-feathers,
and bends over to gently cradle
the dead little duck in his big,
muscular, angelic-arms. Then
Guardisimo gently pads over, in his huge
bare feet, to
the kneeling cushions in front of
the Thrones....and kneels.

[THE LORD SPEAKS A COMMAND.]

Suddenly, the little duck arights
itself, begins to quack loudly,
and hops out of Guardisimo's big
burly arms. Then it hops over to
the Flowing River of Life,
waddles into one of its cool,
flowing, healing currents....and
immediately begins to swim: quacking
rather loudly all the while.

Mush-Hearted scrambles up from
the cool, Gold-Tiled Floor, and
begins sobbing even more loudly,
and blowing his nose with the edge
of his angelic-gauzy-sparkled gown.
Sniffing and sobbing, he asks the LORD
if he can run over and stick his bare
toes in the water and pet the little quacking
duck.

[The LORD NODS.]
"What is its name, now,
Mush-Hearted?"

Mush-Hearted is busy splashing his small
bare toes in the cool water, and rubbing
his little blush cheeks of their hot tears.
Then he shouts.
"QUILLERUS!"

The LORD sighs.
Then He turns an ear,
once more, to His human child:
nodding and frowning patiently.

"YOU'RE a HUNTER,
just like.....THEM,
LORD! That's why You
LIKE THEM, so much!"

The LORD nods.
"That is true,
My precious."

"YES!
I was RIGHT!"

"I AM
a Hunter,
child.
[The LORD pauses.
He Speaks,
and suddenly Mush-Hearted
has a bag of crumbs in one
hand, and a tiny yellow duckling
in the other.]
"A Hunter
of.....
hearts."
*************************
But
the fruit
of the Spirit
is love,
joy,
peace,
patience,
kindness.....
gentleness.
[Gallatians 5:22-23]
