Saint Hubert (Hubert de Liège)

Hubertus (German) is honored among sport-hunters as the originator of ethical hunting behavior. During Hubert's religious vision, the Hirsch (Deer) is said to have lectured Hubertus into holding animals in higher regard and having compassion for them as God's creatures with a value in their own right. For example, the hunter ought to only shoot when a humane, clean and quick kill is assured. He ought shoot only old stags past their prime breeding years and to relinquish a much anticipated shot on a trophy to instead euthanize a sick or injured animal that might appear on the scene.

The atheist possesses an unshakeable confidence in his own righteousness. The reason for this is obvious: he is his own absolute source of morality, and sets his own moral standards, by which he judges both himself and everyone else. As Peter Hitchens observes, “Unlike Christians, atheists have a high opinion of their own nature”. It becomes terribly easy to feel virtuous when you are the one defining virtue. The atheist cannot recognise his own moral inadequacy without a moral standard that transcends him. Giorgio Roversi, The amorality of atheism

It is true that I am a rebellious heart and that I have not ceased to rebel against pervasive ugliness, against baseness promoted in virtue and against lies elevated to the rank of truth. I have not ceased to protest against those who, before our eyes, wanted the death of Europe, our ancient civilization, without which I would be nothing. Dominique Venner
