Despite the title of this post, I don’t believe that “monkeys are people too.” Nevertheless, an ABC news report says that some people think that they are. This is one you’ll have to see to believe.
According the report, people are “adopting” monkeys and living with them as their surrogate “children.” These people call these adopted monkeys their “babies,” and they even dress them up like little infants.
The stories of these “adoptions” ought to scandalize anyone who still cares about the sanctity of human life. Is it any wonder that human life is so devalued in our culture when there are people who do not know the difference between people and animals? They are like the Ninevites of old, “persons who do not know the difference between their right and left hand, as well as many animals?” (Jonah 4:11).
This report is a sign of the times.
