Another way to strip all joy and pleasure out of life, adding to the fun-is-bad working. They can't celebrate holidays, they can't go on class trips, they can't take sports, they can't have dates at school, they can't go to college, they can't even take vacation without wasting it all on field circus. Nor can they enjoy an ice cream cone or save money for something they want (such as a video game) instead of getting it from their parents.
And now pets? This, to me, sounds like they are doing all they can to make us into a race of greys. And, they are doing a pretty good job of doing it. Worse, when the people obey, they are putting psychic energy into The Establishment passing laws where everyone is equal to everyone else. Already, it has stripped all the fun out of work and school in the guise of "sexual harassment" (whatever that term means--I guess living on a planet where members of the opposite sex are affected by the same star). All in preparation for Noahide Law, which is coming like it or not. The more people detach from pets (and anything else that is fun) in the name of religion, the easier a time they are going to have imposing full Noahide Law worldwide.
I think I would rather get killed by a 96 pound hail stone than live forever under Noahide Law.
