Put Down the Kombucha and Pick Up a Crossbow: Hipsters Are the New Hunters
Want organic, sustainable meat? Kill it yourself, say veteran hunters trying to appeal to the next generation of recruits to keep the sport alive.
A group of veteran hunters set out last month in a forest northeast of Atlanta with apprentices. Among them, a former vegetarian, a Haitian-born grad student and a farmers-market manager. They wore camouflage and carried crossbows.
Now where is the guy who questioned why an article about Catholics going bananas over a cross is on this website? What does kombucha and hunting and being hip and young have to do with Christianity? Do we need to send out missionaries to this new tribal group? Or should be seek out ways to be more hip? Isn't that like being conformed to the world, which Paul tells us we should not be doing, but instead be renewing our minds?
Man is rarely content with his lot: historically, rural folk have often tired of the drudgery of country life and its privations, so they move to the city for more excitement and profit, while city dwellers weary of urban life often crave the country. Many country songs romanticize small-town life.
Pre-modern London had a continual influx of country migrants even though it was not a healthier place to be overall.
Ironically, the Epistles are addressed to city people even though many Christians think country living is more wholesome. The word "pagan" is Latin for "peasant." Just sayin'.
