When animals are burnt alive next come humans

The Catholic church in Spain used to burn alive dogs and cats - who would be roasted alive. Next came the inquisition, and next in the West came the burning of women - blamed as witches. The countries that have the highest number of crimes against animals, also have them against humans. Today in Spain a criminal public event takes place where the horns of a bull are torched, and everyone cheers. How can you expect such humans to be in the image of G-d.
