Anti-whaling and Pro-whaling Supporters Unable to Have a Dialogue
The International Whaling Commission (IWC) is facing a challenging
year as pro-whaling and anti-whaling supporters are unable to have a
dialogue and reach a compromise. "There are no dialogues, it's just
shouting matches sometimes," Morishita said of annual IWC meetings.
While many countries are strongly opposed to whaling, such as Australia
and Great Britain, Japan says that killing whales is no different than
killing any other animal.

Whaling Commission Meetings Could Be Halted
Japan is right in that killing whales is no different than killing
any other of God’s animals. Humans tend to hide behind excuses in order
to seek pleasure and fill their desires. While some people do not
include any animals in their circle of compassion, others include pets
and a minority of humans does its best to include all creatures. It is
evident that we live in a fallen world and that perfection is
impossible, but trying our best by the grace of God is honoring and
glorifying to our Creator and brings reconciliation to Creation. It’s
important, however, that anger and resentment do not stand in the way of
compassion and mercy. Shouting and blaming rarely achieve anything.
