Scriptural precedent

Minister calls for ban on whale hunting.

. . . should the killing of whales be banned outright and the sea monster left to proliferate and play? Yes.Industries that are abhorrent and even immoral to many can be quite resilient where hunters depend on it for their livelihood and consumers depend on it for food. We’ve learned that with the Newfoundland seal hunt. But Antarctica is a long way from Japan.

Whale species remain vulnerable and if we are not vigilant, lobbyists could usher the return of commercial whaling. If that were to happen, the minke and humpback we watched so giddily and reverently in Antarctica could go the way of the big blue whale.

You don’t see them playing in the sea. You hardly see them at all.
