Wolf in Sheep's Clothing?

“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.”
Mahatma Gandhi

I received some interesting feedback about Small Flockers, this Blog, and our case that we are pressing for change.

This person felt that I was attempting to improperly link our cause with the issue of food security.

While that was all that was quickly said, I assume there is much more behind what was said.  I assume the feelings run much deeper, if not in just this person's mind, perhaps in the minds of many others.

Perhaps someone out there thinks that the Small Flocker's have attempted to improperly disguise our purpose, to dupe the public, and to hide behind the sacrosanct issue of food security.

A few weeks ago, another person said they were not willing to sign the petition, and were not willing to promote the petition to other persons because petitions are not a proper way for people to voice their opinions, people often sign them without understanding what they say, and will often sign just to escape an uncomfortable request to do so.

Is Small Flockers' acting as a wolf in sheep's clothing, improperly hiding its selfish cause within the virtuous food security issue?

That sounds like an interesting debate.  Perhaps we can actually get some dialogue going on this Blog.  Perhaps I'm acting as a Troll to have raised this issue at this time and place.

Perhaps this issue will be the catalyst that causes our faithful Blog Dogs to change from lurking readers to active participants.  Now's your chance to blast Small Flockers out of the sky.  The door is open, come on in.  Operators are standing by to receive your comments.
