Abusive Anti-Hunting Advocates are Targeting U.S. Olympic Shooters

With the various Olympic records being shattered by American shooters in London, there’s an increased interest in the human interest stories behind Team USA. Unfortunately, that increased coverage has resulted in animal rights groups learning that many of our Olympic shooters – gasp – hunt! Here’s one report about the biggest attacks on Corey Cogdell:

She grew up in Alaska where wild game was what’s for dinner, hunting and fishing with her father and her sister. It was hunting that lead her to competitive shooting, which lead her to the bronze medal in the 2008 Beijing Olympic games. But, the rabid animal rights groups…started berating Cogdell with nasty comments and death threats. …

Cogdell gave a great statement on her Facebook page defending her hunting. Unfortunately, the comments have become so terrible that she decided to take down her fan page.

By the time I heard about what was happening, the page was removed. However, that hasn’t stopped animal rights activists from attacking her on blogs, Twitter, and other social networks. Here’s one woman who tries to claim that Cogdell conducts her Olympic practice on animals. You can find a Tumblr user who not only spreads the same lie about using animals for target practice, but goes on to say this about our Team USA Olympian:

Corey demonstrates true pyschopathic behaviour in this photograph by her lack of remorse.

Activists have started a petition out to convince the US Olympic Committee to kick hunters (and all of those who defend lawful hunting) off the team. Another animal rights blogger rants about how an athlete who hunts should be considered as engaging in misconduct:

Misconduct is a very mild word when used in reference to Olympic medalist, Corey Cogdell.

But I think Twitter is where some of the worst things have been posted to Cogdell’s account. There are the threats & wishes for bodily harm:

There are the wishes for her to fail:

Yes, this is the kind of support that our Olympic athletes are getting right now as they prepare for their competitions. So, if you’d like to lend a little support to Team USA, you can find the list of all of the shooters on Twitter here. I’m sure they could use a bit more positive support after seeing what Corey has had to deal with.

UPDATE: Here’s even more threats against Corey from other networks. More Americans are involved than on the Twitter accounts, including a Minnesota man who says he wants to physically assault her.

Below the jump, there’s more of a taste of how these animal rights folks view hunters just because they don’t agree with the pastime. I suppose it’s a great representation of the new civility.

  1. Their abusive comments prove that a poorly managed vegetarian diet causes mental health problems.

    Corey Cogdell’s sister was getting the same treatment on the Facebook fan page after noting that her family followed humane sustenance hunting practices.

    1. I doubt many of these violent hypocrites are vegetarians, or that they shun leather belts, shoes, etc. Those are some really disgusting tweets, especially aimed at those representing our country in the Olympics. The Internet too often seems to encourage people to show the worst side of thoughts they’d be better keeping quiet about.

    2. First of all, there is no such thing as “human hunting” practices. Hunting is NOT humane, ever. No animal EVER walked up to a human and voluntarily “offered” itself and lay down on a plate.

      Secondly, at close to 9 BILLION, “sustenance” doesn’t apply. It never did. We are PRIMATES, not “carnivores.” Several species have already been hunted to extinction. What’s sad is that it was for GREED, and not “sustenance.” But of course, admitting THAT little factoid wouldn’t support your delusional statement, now would it.

      Lastly, you have “proven” nothing, except that you are capable of non sequitur statements – and a statement is not “proof,” in case you don’t know the difference.

      And trying to link “diet” with “mental illness?” Seriously?? That’s the best you can do? A pathetic attempt at ad hominem attacks because you can’t defend the aggression and violence against other species under the guise of “tradition” or “culture” or “sport” or anything else which masks the truth, which is that humans kill other animals and gobble them up not because are bodies require it, but as a way of victimizing them for entertainment and to punish them for simply being within our reach.

      Flesh consumption is a form of conspicuous consumption, and that is the real reason humans consume other species: as an ego boost. And that has been documented over and over by anthropologists (these are real scientists, just FYI, and they document things, they don’t just make silly statements and then claim these statements are “proof” of anything).

      Lastly, colon cancer, colon polyps, gout, diabetes, osteoporosis, RA, obesity – all these diseases are linked to flesh consumption and are nearly absent from cultures which eat little or no flesh. How do YOU account for that? Going to make up more fantasies in your head and then expect them to accept these “statements” as facts? Besides, if a vegetarian diet causes “mental illness” (what laughable idiocracy), then how come Einstein, Tesla, Ghandi, and many other great scientists and leaders WERE VEGETARIANS BY CHOICE?

      Learn how to do some research and get an education in critical thinking before you get your backside served up to you again.

      1. Obviously, we don’t share your weakness, Skippy.

        Now go and eat your tofu-burger.

      2. Thank you for providing evidence to back up my snarky assertion that a poorly managed vegetarian diet does cause mental health issues.

        Clearly, you condone violence and murder, as long as it is directed at humans. How very caring of you and your lot.

        As to the rest of your unsolicited and fallacious cult recruitment spiel, I win because BACON.

        1. Albert Einstein was vegetarian. What mental health issues did he have?

          1. If Tesla was a vegetarian (haven’t looked that up yet), it’s not a good choice for the not-crazy part. While an extraordinary genius (invented RADAR before WWI – that’s a one), he was also in love with a Pigeon and thought it shot lasers out of its eyes before it died.

            Genius usually does come with a bit of crazy.

          2. Einstien’s brain was below average weight and showed signs of degeneration which led many medical persons to suspect some forms of mild mental health issues. Specifically once his son was born with a mental illness. Look it up! And on another note you may want to verify your facts. The human species are omnivores, as evidenced by our dentistry. Our teeth are designed for ripping and tears as well as grinding and chewing. One and one more thought for you to chew on and digest…plants are alive. They breathe, require oxygen, nutrients and water to survive. So, does it not break your little heart when you rip them out of the ground, thereby killing them, so you can chow down? What if I wanted to be a plant activist and stand up for the rights of living, breathing plants. Does that give me the right to level harmful and threatening remarks against all vegetarians? I think not! And, unless you are a full fledged vegan you are still consuming animal byproducts. I wonder how many leather shoes, jackets, briefcases etc one might find in your closet???

      3. How DARE Corey Cogdell thank the Lord for all He has done for her. She is a sadistic psychopath and the Lord will deal with her in His own way. There are many warning in the Bible on the dire consequences of abusing animals:
        ‘To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? saith the Lord: I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or lambs, or of he-goats…And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of innocent blood. Put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil’.
        ~ Isaiah 1:11, 15-16, Holy Bible

        Jesus said ”I will have mercy, and not sacrifice.”
        ~ Matthew 9:13 & 12:7, Holy Bible

        If this abhorrent woman is a Christian as she say’s she is then she is not reading from the same book, or does she conveniently skip over passages such as these?

        1. If you’re such a Christian to actually believe anything you typed, then you’ll quickly apologize for judging someone’s heart when we all know that only one guy upstairs gets that responsibility. Somehow, I don’t think that the kind of love Christians are supposed to show for everyone – sinners included – is represented well by judging someone you’ve never met as a “sadistic psychopath.” Otherwise, I think you’re more guilty of selective reading and believing than anything you might argue against hunters & meat eaters.

          1. I never said that I was a Christian, I’m merely quoting passages from the Bible in which The Creator makes his warnings clear. How can you argue with what is written in The Bible?
            ‘Thou shalt not kill’ ~ Exodus 20:13, Holy Bible

            ‘It is contrary to human dignity to cause animals to suffer and die’. ~ Catechism of the Catholic Church

            Does it say anywhere in The Bible that you can go out, and in cold blood, gun down any animal that takes your fancy and then pose with it, grinning with it’s sacred blood on your face?

            How can I apologise for judging her heart if she hasn’t got one? She is a heartless, unfeeling sorry excuse for a human being.

            1. It makes sense that you’re not a Christian because your, uh, love and respect for other living beings – if that’s what you can call your rhetoric – is so clearly on display.

              Ever hear the phrase that you can catch more flies with honey? Perhaps if you want to convince people that your way really is the best way to show respect for living things, you could start by having a civil conversation with fellow human beings with whom you may disagree.

                1. Hey, you’re hours late to the results. And she’s still one of the top shooters in the world with the support of millions of Americans behind her. So, what is your random link dropping supposed to prove?

                    1. And? So some ignorant hateful people are glad she lost. We already know that!

                  1. The only “Americans” who support her are the ones who think that cage or canned hunting is humane! How “humane” is it to trap an animal jsut to walk up to it and shoot it? How “humane” is it to fly a helicopter after a wolf or a pack of wolves just to land said helicopter and shoot the wolf after he/she has passed out due to exhaustion? That is not HUMANE at all. St. Francis of Assissi treated all animals with respect. He condoned poisoning any animal, he was against hunting for sport PERIOD. What Corey and others are doing is not SPORT, it is degrading. They are hunting animals that are on the ENDANGERED SPECIES list. We think that just because we are “human” means that we have the right to ruin the only planet we are capable of living on. We have completely decimated not only the animal life from where it was 100 years ago, we have also contaminated our drinking water, or soil that we rely on for fruits, vegetables, and the grains we need more than meats for survival.

                    1. No, I don’t even hunt and I support her. There is nothing wrong with hunting.

                      And actually grains are the worst thing for the human body. We are not designed to eat them in any sort of large quantity. Meat is what we are designed for. That’s what we need.

                1. So you choose to be hateful to everyone with whom you disagree, which means that according to your little proverb that’s what you find delightful and how you would like to be treated. You know, if you’re into that kind of thing, there are much healthier ways to express is.

                  1. I think you’ve chosen an excellent profile name, it really suits your character.

                  2. For as long as men massacre animals, they will kill each other. Indeed, he who sows the seed of murder and pain cannot reap joy and love. Pythagoras 6th century B.C.

                    1. Well considering how many of your allies propose killing their fellow man over a mere disagreement in what they eat and how they obtain it, I’d say that even if everyone went vegan, you’d still have quite a lot of violence.

                2. You live your life full of hate and murderous thoughts? Great to know.

                  1. ‎’ One is not a great one because one defeats or harms other living beings. One is so-called because one refrains from defeating or harming other living beings’. ~ Shakyamuni Buddha, Dhammapada

                    1. Actually, one can not assume that all Buddhists are vegetarian. Some Buddhist traditions are, but there are many that eat meat. How can this be? Because some translated the Buddha’s teachings to mean that no animal should be harmed or killed FOR THEM. If the villagers slaughtered a pig, had some left over, and gave it to the monastery, that would be fine…but if someone slaughtered his finest swine SPECIFICALLY as a gift to the monks, then they could not eat it, because that animal was killed for them.
                      Many Buddhists in the United States, including myself, eat meat. I don’t eat a lot of it, but I don’t believe it to be a terrible act. I buy local, grass fed (beef) and free range (chicken). Our cousin, the chimpanzee, eats meat from time to time – it’s hard for me to imagine that we would have evolved into homo sapiens if we would not have had the benefit of learning cooperative hunting, and the protein from the meat that supplied valuable fat and calories.

                3. Quoting others is not proof of anything. But, just in case I am wrong,

                  Kill it and grill it.
                  Ted Nugent

            2. Well you are definitely not a Christian if you think that “Thou Shalt Not Kill” applies to animals. It doesn’t- it applies to humans.

              The Bible says hunting is wrong only if the animal is wasted. Do we know that is what happened?

              1. A cleaner interpretation of the original verse would be “Thou shall not murder.” In the United States, murder applies only to people. Perhaps the vegetarians need to get Congress to expand the meaning of murder to include animals. What’s next? “Trees are people too”?

                1. hahah these people are calling killing animals murder while abortion is still okay. Ridiculous. Not trying to start an abortion debate, but if you want to expand the meaning of murder abortion is certainly the next logical step.

              2. People are animals. That is a scientific fact. If you have a face and your DNA is 95% like a
                chimp than you are related. Thou shalt not kill means all animals.

                1. No it does not mean all animals- it only applies to humans. And even then its Thou Shall Not Murder. Big difference. And the Bible even encourages eating meat. Look at the quotes on this page.

                  Finally, We wouldn’t be able to process meat if we aren’t supposed to kill and eat animals. That’s a scientific fact.

            3. Well, you’d better get to figuring something out, because I’m pretty sure your murdering all those innocent plants you consume… As for your argument, I am just trying to understand we are supposed to respect animals lives, but not humans??? If that is the case, then your lot should probably be thankful that us “hunter/killer” types think differently, because after all, were the ones who are 1. the ones with weapons, and 2. we are the “sadistic, sociopaths” when we kill with no remorse or feeling… After all I believe Sociopath is more what your looking for, because Psycopath is more for those who cannot control their actions, whereas sociopaths have no remorse… Just sayin….

        2. With what righteousness do you pass judgement on others? Your own self-righteousness which you have declared is higher than all others.

          Crawl back under the slimy rock you came from and don’t rear your ugly head again.

            1. Oh you no which the Lord favors? You speak to him often? I thought you weren’t even Christian? I guess that’s true, because then you’d no that the Lord favors no person- he offers forgiveness for all.

            2. Genesis 27:3 ESV / 58 helpful votes

              Now then, take your weapons, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field and hunt game for me…..

              Directly from the Bible!!!!!!

        3. I do not have the time to look up the passage right now, to provide more detail, but it seems to me that you are taking these passages out of context.

          First, Isaiah was talking to a people who were guilty of murder–and thus, the Lord did not approve of the sacrifices that were made to him, by people who had blood on their hands. It is complete nonsense to try to make the case otherwise: the Lord himself set up those sacrifices, and had enjoyed them years before.

          Second, Jesus Christ was a sacrifice, for us. The reason we no longer shed blood, is because those other sacrifices were fulfilled, by his sacrifice, and thus no longer needed. He still expects sacrifice, though: that of a broken heart and a contrite spirit.

          You say it is abhorrent for a Christian to “conveniently skip over passages such as these”; isn’t it more abhorrent, to twist the meaning of passages, to try to cast the person who believes in those words as a whole, as a hypocrite? Especially when you do not hold these beliefs yourself?

      4. ‘For I tell you truly, he who kills, kills himself, and who eats the flesh of slain beasts, eats the body of death. For in his blood every drop of their blood turns to poison; in his breath their breath to stink; in his flesh their flesh to boils; in his bones their bones to chalk; in his bowels their bowels to decay; in his eyes their eyes to scales; in his ears their ears to waxy issue. And their death will become his death.’
        ~ The Essene Gospel of Peace, Book 1

        1. Clearly, your argument will win the day with its detailed response to those you oppose. We strive for a bit more here, so feel free to bring your level of discourse up a bit.

      5. I agree with you about food. A high meat diet really messes up your body, and ages you. About hunting:
        isn’t it cowardly and shameful to take a gun or a semi-automatic and kill an unarmed creature with no
        use of its arms? with no defenses. It is like shooting a child in a crib or a dog in a yard. Cowardly.

        1. Way to late post there buddy.

          But no, a high meat diet really HELPS your body. A high grain diet hurts it. Remember, before the rise of agriculture, humans ate mostly meat with some fruits and vegetables.

          Do you feel bad for the antelope who only has speed to defend itself from the Lion?

          Equating hunting and shooting a child or a dog shows just how much nonsense you have in your head.

  2. I wonder how many of the haters are Brits, Canadians or are from other English speaking nations with a bad case of animal idolatry, instead of fellow Americans?

    Ever see the movie 12 Monkeys? Those rabid haters remind me of the animal worshipping nuts who unleash a genocidal plague on humanity in the movie 12 Monkeys.

    1. as much as I agree with everything you guys are saying, I have to make a correction… in 12 monkeys it turned out to not be the army of the 12 monkeys (e.g. the animal worshipers), hence why Bruce Willis failed his mission. it was the scientist whom worked for Brad Pitt’s father’s company.

      1. “Animal worshipers?”



        So, would the people who fought for freedom for African slaves in the 1800s in the USA have been called…what…”African lovers?” How about “slave lovers?”

        I’m dying to know, this should be good.

        How about the men and women who at great cost to themselves support women’s rights? What do we call them? Vagina lovers?

        Oh, and let’s not forget everyone who believes there should be social parity for everyone, even if they love someone who is the same sex. Are they, let’s see…”Homo Worshippers?” Just a clue: Homo sapien means “human.”

        I hope some of you realize how ridiculous the term “animal worshippers” sounds. But then again, coming from insecure, selfish, and domineering humans who think that abusing other species is their “right,” how *can* we expect any critical thinking or objective thought?

        My my, the world is getting more overpopulated each day with those unable to think themselves out of a paper bag.

        1. Its not ridiculous when you consider the people who are called that place animals above humans- to the point of wanting humans killed.

          So how can we expect any critical thinking or objective thought when people of your ilk want hunters dead?

          You last line is correct though- but you are only talking about yourself.

        2. How did you go from “animal WORSHIPPERS” to “slave LOVERS?” Why not just skip down to “TOLERANT of those with whom I disagree?”

        3. Did you seriously just compare killing animals to keeping slaves as if those are anywhere near the same level. Slaves are people animals are animals. If you get offened by someone saying your animal worshipper through a reference to a movie then you are just whiny bitch.

  3. They’ve also vandalized her Wikipedia page. Stay classy, Animal Wrongs Movement, stay classy.

    1. No,we do our best to protect animals, from boycotting to signing petitions to get our message across that animals are just as important to the planet as humans. Yet, we as humans have taken our false sense of superiority to extremes. The extremes of caged/canned/trapp hunting. The extremes that we feel it is necessary to overbreed dogs so that we can have “designer” dogs. To the fact that on an annual basis over 170 MILLION animals are slaughtered incorrectly so that people can eat their flesh. We also put the word out that humans are the biggest threat to animals in every way, including beastiality

      1. I think if most animals could talk they would rather be shot thank fucked by a person.

    1. Yes, it is against their rules. I would just like to capture the evidence before it disappears if any of these folks are kicked off.

  4. The tweeters are all fraidy cat Europeans. What’s a European going to do, hit me with his man purse?

    Let me show their true colours as they bleat peace, love and harmony.

    1. Actually, since checking out some of the other sites against her, there are several Americans who have piped up to join in with the threats. One guy from Texas said he would like to “punch her stupid face in.” I’m pulling together these new threats now.

      1. Funny, in Britain most of these are criminal as a violation of the Malicious Communications Act. However, macho (macho) man (I wanna be, a macho man!) in TX could certainly be arraigned for making terroristic threats. And I’m pretty sure that tweet crossed state lines.

  5. Twitter is just providing a juvenile, bleating, springboard for these Leftist losers and mentally-arrested permanent adolescents.

  6. Recommended to Corey’s sister that she send some of these to the police after the group started attacking Corey on a local Alaska News facebook after Corey’s facebook came down.

  7. Huh. Not a lot of solidarity….

    Amanda Furrer:
    Hey Twitter! Fun fact about me: I’ve never hunted in my life! Why? I’m an Olympic sport shooter! My glory comes in precision and perfection.

    1. What a disappointing tweet! That certainly is written to leave the impression that those who do choose to hunt are not Olympic-worthy shooters. Even if she didn’t mean to throw her teammate under the bus, the choice of words sounds like that is her intent.

  8. Corey Cogdell, in my opinion you are a despicable human being whose pathetic rationalizations to try and defend the indefensible are an insult to all moral people on this planet. Trophy hunting is an abomination and the countless photos of your smiling face online, posing with the innocent animals you just slaughtered, says it all. You are an embarrassment to the United States and the worst possible Olympic representative this nation could have.

        1. “Most people agree with him.” Please provide a source for this “fact.” I prefer it not be from PETA.com or something similar. Perhaps something peer-reviewed.

    1. Yes Sean and we’ve had to have this ‘despicable human being’ on UK soil. She is so unpopular and it is spreading far and wide now. People all over the world can see how this hateful woman has been using her ‘gun skills’, by shooting defenceless and endangered animals – how VERY brave!!

      1. I like how only some people against her are automatically means she is unpopular- despite the evidence right here that she is not.

        And its also funny how you accuse her of people hateful- when all you have to do is look at the post above to see all the hate being spewed at her.

        Cognitive dissidence is what its called Helen.

      2. Anybody up for a good old fashioned fox hunt? Brits have been doing it for centuries.

        Helen, you can be my hunting dog. Good girl!

  9. Helen I agree with everything you say, but please take pity on these poor people…
    after all it’s quite obvious they are not equipped with any witt, sensibility or dignity..

    1. Yes Tilly, I realise that now. I shall not waste any more of my time on these retards. I shall spend it by trying to make the World a better place by continuing to campaign against the barbaric and inhumane treatment of animals.

      1. With your charm, whit and general disregard for those who disagree with your point of view, I wish you luck. You will certainly need it in your efforts.

      2. Helen, is your definition of retard “somebody who disagrees with Helen?” Perhaps you should open your mind and realize that there may exist ideas and opinions, although different from your own, equally valid to those ideas and opinions that you hold dear.

    2. Do plz give the meanings of the words you have just used sir!
      Dignity! noun, plural dig·ni·ties.
      bearing, conduct, or speech indicative of self-respect or appreciation of the formality or gravity of an occasion or situation.

      nobility or elevation of character; worthiness: dignity of sentiments.

      elevated rank, office, station, etc.

      relative standing; rank.

      a sign or token of respect: an impertinent question unworthy of the dignity of an answer. that is one word you have used and yet you do not practice it!

      sensibilities, emotional capacities.

      Sometimes, sensibilities. liability to feel hurt or offended; sensitive feelings. have no respect for others? give first then ask!

  10. Karma is a bitch and Corey just got bit in the ass by it. I pity the fool who thinks killing out of pleasure is ok. I’m not gonna discuss with you because i know no matter how i try to angle it you wont be able to see further than your nose anyways. I would glady take a bullet for every one of the animals she have ever killed but for people like you who kill for pleasure i would simply just spit on you and walk away.

    Have a nice sunday!

  11. I have to agree with all Helen has said above & yes I expect I will get slated for it,but to be honest i do not care,Corey claims to be a Christian,if this is so why not live by Gods Holy words ” Though Shall Not Kill”? contradicts everything,no one has any right to take any living creatures life,just remember even though you seem to think you all are,YOU are not God!!

    1. Except that Though Shalt No Kill is only a commandment for human on human interaction. The Bible clearly states that hunting is okay.

      And yes, we DO have the right to take living creatures life. Do you know how dumb that sounds to say we don’t? Humans are designed to eat meat and plants- if we didn’t have the right to kill animals and plants, how would we survive? Every animal and human has the right to live, and that necessitates killing.

      I know that contradicts your beliefs, but that’s because are not based on any sort nature argument- just supposed moral superiority.

      1. Vegetarians commit murder every single day.

        They rip young, vibrant plants out of the earth, slice their tops off with sharp knives, display their kills in the market place for all to see and mercilessly throw them into boiling pots or microwaves to be devoured by those who claim to be above all that.

        I can’t even imagine being sauteed alive like that.

        Vegetarians are evil barbarians!!

          1. Absolutely!

            Just because broccoli and potatos can’t scream doesn’t mean they don’t feel pain.

            Think of all the poor fruit trees and bushes that have their sweet young offspring riped from them every harvest. Oh, the humanity…

            Cry for them, because they can’t.

      2. Health Cost of Meat and Dairy

        Cardiovascular Disease has cost $503.2 billion in the US in 2010.
        Cancer treatment costs $6.5 billion in the US per year.
        Diabetes treatment costs $174 billion in the US per year.

        ‘As a so-called food, meat is simply one of the most unhealthy, poisonous, unhygienic items that could ever be ingested by humans. We should never eat meat at all if we love and cherish our health and our life. We will live longer without meat, healthier, wiser without meat.
        Meat has been scientifically shown to cause all kinds of cancers, also heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke and obesity. The list goes on and on and on. All these diseases kill millions of people every year, million, millions of people die due to meat related diseases, and making millions of others seriously sick and disabled as well. There is no end to the tragedies caused by the meat diet. We should know this by now through all the scientific and medical evidence’. ~ The Supreme Master Ching Hai.

        1. Sooner or later everyone dies, Helen, including your supreme master.

          Vegetarians get cancer, too, you know.

          1. it has been medically proven that non-meat eaters have a much lower rate of cancer, diabetes, heart disease, cardiovascular disease than people who rely on meat for their food.

            1. Krysta, I appreciate your efforts to protect me from myself however, life without meat is no life at all. If you choose to eat plants only, please feel free. I choose a different path.

              As far as the costs of meat related health care costs, it should not matter to you how much I pay for my health care. Of course the other argument is that the government pays for much of that because of its invasion into the health care system. This government involvement into health care is clearly unconstitutional (I teach a college Constitution course.) Will you join me in protesting the Central Government’s illegal involvement in health care so that meat eaters don’t cost you extra in taxes? This will allow you to stop monitoring other people’s diets and you life can become simpler.

        2. And all three of those killers are caused by GRAINS and SUGARS. Something humans aren’t really meant to eat. Look at the evidence- once the government went toward promoting grains over fat and meat, obesity and diabetes SOARED.

          How Agriculture Ruined Your Health

          How could meat be unhealthy, poisonous, and unhygienic when humans are DESIGNED to eat it? We the teeth, the jaw, and digestive system to eat it? How can you explain that away? This Supreme Master must be making things up, because all the scientific and medical evidence points to the fact that grains are bad, not meat. Grains cause cancer, heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, and obesity. Why would we be given meat eating abilities if it was so bad for us?

          And if you want one example, look at the Inuit- who survive are nearly a 100% meat diet.

          So yeah, you have no idea what you are talking about.

            1. You know, Helen, when my wife had gestational diabetes, she had to go on a “diabetes diet”. Are you aware of what that consists of? Plenty of protiens, meats and vegitables; some fruit; limited grain and starch intake.

              With meat helping to keep diabetes in control, why should I believe that cutting out meat, and upping grain intake, would prevent diabetes?

              1. You know Alpheus, my son developed Type 1 Diabetes at the age of eight. He was extremely poorly and I of course, went along with what the hospital said. His blood sugar was not under control and the insulin was making him ill. This went on for some time until I sought the help of a Naturopath after researching the effects of diabetes for many months. He suggested that my son went from a vegetarian diet to a vegan one (he has been vegetarian from birth). He also had natural supplements to support and nourish his body. He now only eats wholegrains ie; pasta, rice and bread, nothing ‘white’. He eats fruit and vegetables in abundance and little protein. He will occasionally have a protein shake of hemp powder and rice milk. (Cows milk is a contributing factor towards Type 1 Diabetes if given too early in infancy, along with childhood vaccinations, both of which my son had). My son is now a tall, slim and healthy 19 year old. He controls the diabetes, it does not control him and he is on very small amounts of insulin.
                There is a book out now called something like ‘Reverse Diabetes’ by Dr Neil Barnard (?) which apparently is an excellent book if you have Type 2 Diabetes as it’s easy to ‘cure’ it. Type 1 Diabetes is a different matter entirely.
                So yes, Alpheus, I am well aware of what a ‘diabetes diet’ consists of and no, I would not recommend it. I do hope your wife is now well.

                1. Helen,
                  Please accept my feelings of support for your son. I can not imagine having to have lived with Type I diabetes and am sorry that your child’s life will be limited by that condition. I sincerely hope that he takes care of himself and is able to live a long and happy life.

        3. 300 years ago, meat was healthy. Now, with all the crap that is used as “feed” for said animals. It is unhealthy, but we still need it to survive.

          Also, the animals she has shot, have been used for feeding people.

    2. Genesis 27:3

      Now then, take your weapons, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field and hunt game for me

      Bible verse!!!!

  12. Corey is an evil person. She merely got what she deserves. We care about LIFE. Many of us are vegetarians or vegans. We don’t need to eat meet to live, it’s the BEST diet. Enjoy your meet plus your cholesterol, clogged arteries, heart diseases and OBESITY!!!!

    All the best from a VERY HAPPY and healthy vegetarian.

    1. Don’t judge, Renato. Those of us who hunt and enjoy the meat that God provided for us on this earth will continue to do so and none of your crying, name calling or finger-wagging will ever make a difference.

      We don’t force you to do anything you don’t want to and we expect the same in return.

      Since you can never hope to stop us, I suggest you learn to live with us.

    2. You care about life? And yet you eschew the very thing that you are designed to eat. Should the Lion stop eating meat too?

      Meat does not cause clogged arteries, heart disease, or obesity. Eating grains does all of that. And cholesterol is GOOD for us. Its there for a reason. Why is eating meat wrong when we are DESIGNED to eat it. If you don’t believe in God, evolution did that for us. How does that square with your beliefs? Since its not based on any sort of biological or natural logic. Just supposed moral superiority.

      You may say you are health- but you are really can’t be if you aren’t eating meat.


        ‘Thou shalt not kill’. ~ Exodus 20:13, Holy Bible

        ‘It is contrary to human dignity to cause animals to suffer and die.’ ~ Catechism of the Catholic Church, 2418 Again!

        Those who eat meat break the Five Constant Virtues.
        1. Killing animals to satisfy our taste is inhumane.
        2. Killing animals, causing separation in their family, in order to feed our relatives are unrighteous.
        3. Making befoul food offering from animal meat to the deities is disrespectful.
        4. Praising the eating of animals as if it is God’s gift so as to justify the killing of animals is unwise.
        5. Lure and trick the animals into the snare is untruthful. Worldly people must keep the five constant virtues; breaking these intentionally is to break the moral principles.
        And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, of every tree of thou garden thou mayest freely eat. ~ Genesis, Holy Bible

        Corey Cogdell has broken every one of these constant virtues and she has the audacity to call herself a Christian!

        1. Again, Thou Shalt Not Kill applies ONLY to killing humans. The Bible says that hunting is FINE.

          Genesis 27:3:

          “Now then, take your weapons, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field and hunt game for me”

          Genesis 9:3

          “Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you. And as I gave you the green plants, I give you everything.”

          Leviticus 11:1-47:

          “And the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying to them, “Speak to the people of Israel, saying, These are the living things that you may eat among all the animals that are on the earth. ”

          Leviticus 17:13:

          “Any one also of the people of Israel, or of the strangers who sojourn among them, who takes in hunting any beast or bird that may be eaten shall pour out its blood and cover it with earth.”

          Genesis 1:26:

          “Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.””

          So I have no idea where you made up those “Constant Virtues” but they are not supported by scripture.

          1. Patrick, I have just looked the Bible and strangely enough, in my Bible it says:
            Leviticus 17:8 ”Whatsoever man there be of the house of Israel, or of the strangers which sojourn among you, that offereth a burnt offering or sacrifice (17:9) and bringeth it not unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, to offer it unto the Lord; even that man shall be cut off from among his people. 17:10 And whatsoever man there be of the house of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn among you, that eateth any manner of blood; I will even set my face against that soul that eateth blood, and will cut him off from among his people. (17: 11) For the life of the flesh in in the blood; and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls….. 17:12 Therefore I said unto the children of Israel, No soul of you shall eat blood, neither shall any stranger that sojourneth among you eat blood. 17:13 And whatsoever man there be of the children of Israel, or the strangers that sojourn among you, which hunteth and catcheth any beast or fowl that may be eaten; he shall even pour out the blood thereof, and cover it with dust. 17:14 For it is the life of all flesh; the blood of it is for the life thereof; therefore I say unto the children of Israel, Ye shall eat the blood of no manner of flesh; for the life of all flesh is the blood thereof: whosoever eateth it shall be cut off.” It goes on to say that if you come into contact with blood from a dead beast you must wash yourself clean.
            As for Leviticus 11: 1-47 it states that most animals are unclean and their flesh you must not eat, ie animals that chew the cud, camels, coney, hare, swine and most animals ”Of their flesh shall ye not eat,and their carcase shall ye not touch; they are unclean to you.”
            I would, if I were you read through Leviticus 11: 1-47. It seems to suggest that animals may be eaten but yet they are unclean to you (contamination?) so in essence, they must not be eaten. Their blood is for their life only.

            1. No, you completely misinterpret what it says. That book deals a lot with animal sacrifices, things that Jesus overturned later. And it instructed not to eat blood- but nothing is wrong with eating the flesh. IE drain the blood before cooking/eating. It does instruct not to eat certain animals, but there is no blanket prohibition on eating animals.

              BZZZZT WRONG Try again.

        2. Helen, the scripture from Exodus is more properly translated “Thou shalt not murder”; thus, it isn’t even a complete injunction against killing humans. If someone comes to kill you or your loved ones, and you are not in the wrong, you have the right, even the duty, to stop him–even if stopping him results in the loss of his life.

          As someone who is not a Catholic, and believes that the Catholic Church was formed in the aftermath of a “Great Apostacy”, I see no reason why I should care what a catechism is, or why it applies to me, beyond coming to a better understanding of my fellow humans, who happen to be Catholic.

          I have never heard of these “Five Constant Virtues”, and the fact that none of them mentions human life as sacred, nor mentions the rights to property or liberty, nor even mentions morality or other human interaction in any way, makes me suspicious of them. Of course, now that I’m looking at them more carefully, I am trying to understand your twisting of the Five Constant Virtues, that you are using to justify your vegitarian lifestyle–I suspect that if I saw the Five Constant Virtues clear and unpolluted, I’d agree with them completely. Since you’re so eager to twist them to justify your own lifestyle choices, however, I cannot trust what you say about them!

        3. Would you like to finish 2418 in it’s entirety?

          It is contrary to human dignity to cause animals to suffer or die needlessly. It is likewise unworthy to spend money on them that should as a priority go to the relief of human misery. One can love animals; one should not direct to them the affection due only to persons.

        4. 6 I looked into it and saw four-footed animals of the earth, wild beasts, reptiles and birds. 7 Then I heard a voice telling me, ‘Get up, Peter. Kill and eat.’

        1. How do you justify the mass killings and ingestations of innocent and defenseless fruits and vegetables that not only go on daily but you yourself regularly commit?

          Btw, do you shave your legs and armpits? Just curious…

        2. Humans are meant to eat meat. I fully support humane hunting and killing for food, but to deny that biological fact makes the rest of your argument invalid.

      2. Patrick, I’m more than likely healthier than you. I’m a non-smoking, tee total vegan. I’m 53 and look 10 years younger (so I’m told!). I’ve recently had a bone density test which showed that my bones are like that of a 21 year old. My blood pressure is normal to slightly low and my cholesterol level is very low. I run 20-30 miles a week, swim 3 miles a week, walk my dog for an hour and a half every day, practice yoga, do two 1 hour gym sessions a week and do one spin cycle class a week. I am never ill and take no medication whatsoever. All this is pretty normal within the vegan circle and many top endurance athletes are vegan.

        1. I doubt you are healthier than me. I’m never ill and I take no medication either, and I subsist on the primal diet. I felt like crap whenever I eat grains, and I felt great after eating meat. I can work out, and if I’m feeling sore, some nice steak takes care of that by the next day.

          Remember, you may SEEEM healthy, but underneath you are not. Endurance athletes aren’t healthy either. The cholesterol test is worthless because cholesterol is necessary for the body. There are plenty of people who work out and eat what used to be considered healthy, then fall over dead of a heart attack.

          Meat is a necessary component of human eating, and by not eating it you are hurting yourself.

          1. Oh Patrick, you make me chuckle with your ignorance and I take pity on you. So, even the brilliant minds in history are wrong, are they?

            ‘I, for my part, wonder of what sort of feeling, mind or reason that man was possessed who was the first to pollute his mouth with gore, and allow his lips to touch the flesh of a murdered being; who spread his table with the mangled form of dead bodies, and claimed as daily food and dainty dishes what but now were beings endowed with movement, with perception and with voice’. ~ Plutarch

            ‘A human being is part of a whole, called by us ”Universe”, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us.
            ‘Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.’ ~ Albert Einstein.

            If man’s aspirations towards right living are serious…he will first abstain from animal food because…its use is simply immoral, as it requires the performance of an act which is contrary to moral feeling – killing.’ The Diet of Ethics, Tolstoy.

            You will all be very relieved to know that I shall no longer be contributing to this forum as I have many lectures to prepare for the fast approaching new school year. The way that some of you interpret the Bible to justify your own lust for blood is a disgrace along with the pain and suffering that you are subjecting animals to.
            Most omnivores, if they were forced to spend a single day enduring the conditions of the average factory farm would renounce meat-eating for life. It is not a lack of imagination that prevents them from discovering this, but a deliberate, conscious decision to remain ignorant for fear that knowing the full consequences of their demand for cheap meat, would be too painful to endure.

            ‘And the flesh of slain beasts in his own body will become his own tomb. For I tell you truly, he who kills, kills himself, and whoso eats the flesh of slain beasts, eats the body of death.’ ~ From The Gospel of Peace of Jesus Christ by the Disciple John.

            With the amount of meat related diseases that are so prevalent today, never has a truer word been spoken.

            One day, I hope, you will consider the damage you have inflicted on animals, the Planet and yourselves and start a new, compassionate, clean and cruelty free life.

            You will be hearing no more from me.

            1. I will continue to eat as many animals as I can until the day I die. I know they are good for me, as that is what my body is designed for (you still haven’t address that biological fact).

            2. Helen,
              Just out of curiosity, do you support a woman’s right to abortion?

  13. Cory was a loser before she entered the olympics and she is a loser after the olympics. Cowardly subhuman white trash. Glad you lost Cory.

    1. I presume you are capable of understanding that Corey doesn’t write this blog; nor, to the best of my knowledge, does she read it.

  14. I have edited some comments to deal with long URLs pushing out the formatting beyond the border. I fought the temptation to use this as an opportunity to insert snarky commentary, which was difficult :)

  15. I hope that all these threats (from Twitter, Facebook, etc.) to Cory and her family are turned over to Law Enforcement for investigation and prosecution. Nobody needs to be treated in this way.
