Jason Heller gives 'em Hell



Will the heartless killers ever see the difference between the ugliness of their deeds and the preciousness, and beauty, of life?


Jason Heller, friend and pro-photographer, went to the Montauk Shark Tournament last week - not to participate, but to expose the participants - he is spearheading this issue and hopefully put an end to the killing.

Believe it or not, there is a annual tournament in Long Island to kill sharks. The bodies are then showed off on the docks, but what likely are drunk hicks - I mean 'recreational' fishermen. Have a look at what Jason's wife wrote - Jason himself will have an update and photos soon...

Looking at the large tiger shark killed for "sport" makes me, once again, feel deeply ashamed to call those fishermen my fellow humans.

Not that I am an exemplary human being - far from that. But growing older meant to me feeling drawn closer to those creatures who are at the mercy of God's pride of creation.

Have those who hung up the shark felt like taking revenge at Jesus whom they perhaps unconsciously deeply resent for being a son of the people who gave the world the ten commandments? "Thou shalt not kill" - one of the pillars of human civilization; for killers the most unbearable of all commandments.

The fishermen first killed the shark - and then crucified it...
