In the first week of January 2006, Sharon Tendler, a British citizen in her forties, married Cindy the dolphin. She said there was nothing perverted about it; she just loves the animal and wants it to have a happy life. The wedding ceremony was simple. Sharon just wore white and gave her love a kiss and a herring (http://hubpages.com/hub/Animal-human-Marriages).
On September 27, 2006: A Seattle man was found dead after attempting to have sex with a horse. You think that’s strange? Well yeah it is. But the even stranger thing is that in the state of Washington having sex with animals is completely legal. Sergeant John Urquhart commenting on the event stated, "Deputies don’t believe a crime occurred because bestiality is not illegal in Washington state and the horse was uninjured" (1). Urquhart went on to state that, "because investigators found chickens, goats and sheep on the property, they are looking into whether animal cruelty — which is a crime — was committed by having sex with these smaller, weaker animals" (1). So essentially Washington state laws allow for people to have sex with animals, as long as the animal goes uninjured. After the incident Bob Reder of the Seattle Humane Society noted that only thirty three states ban sex with animals, meaning seventeen states in our country allow sex with animals (http://www.watchblog.com/thirdparty/archives/004251.html).

Crazy, Sick Crime - March 24th, 2008
Living in the basement, the 29-year-old mother with a child-like mind and another baby on the way had little more than a thin rug and a mattress to call her own on the chilly concrete floor. Dorothy Dixon ate what she could forage from the refrigerator upstairs, where housemates used her for target practice with BBs, burned her with a glue gun and doused her with scalding liquid that peeled away her skin. They torched what few clothes she had, so she walked around naked. They often pummeled her with an aluminum bat or metal handle.
Dixon — six months pregnant — died after weeks of abuse. Police have charged two adults, three teenagers and a 12-year-old boy with murder in the case that has repulsed many in this Mississippi River town. Investigators put much of the blame on Michelle Riley, 35, who they said befriended Dixon but pocketed monthly Social Security checks she got because of her developmental delays (http://allweirdnews.com/crazy-sick-crime/).
Adolf Hitler, who ruled Germany for 12 years, which resulted in millions of deaths in World War II, including the holocaust, is regarded as one of the most despicable men in history, with his name becoming synonymous with evil. But for years many embraced him as a national hero!
There is disregard for doing that which is right in the sight of God today. Our primary goal in life as a Christian should be to please God, not self or others. Jesus is our model to imitate for not doing our will but God’s will. John 4:34; 8:28-29; 12:49. The apostles Peter and John provide an excellent example of how we should please God not men in Acts 4:19-20.We need to remember that God’s ways are not our ways. Isa.55:8-9; Luke 16:15. The wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. 1 Cor.3:19-21. Hence, we cannot do that which is right in our own eyes and that which is right in the sight of God at the same time. God forewarns us all through the Bible that following one’s own sight will not work. There is a way which seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death. Prov. 16:25. Walking in the sight of our own eyes is the sin of presumption according to Psalm 19:13.
