I am pretty sure that any reasonable human being, if given the ACTUAL choice to leave a human baby in a fire and to leave a cat in a fire, would choose to save the baby.  I don’t think that is what people are really even saying…they are saying, the first thought I would have would be of my cat/dog/whatever.  The OP’s first thought in a fire would be of her cat; the mother’s first thought would be of her baby.  I know my first thought would be my cat…but I would definitely save the HELPLESS humans before the cat.

I, ____, take you, ____, to be my lawfully wedded(husband/wife), to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, until the house is burning down and I choose the cat death do us part.

 

Is this real life? lol

@peachacid:  Very interesting thought – and I agree!  People can say what they’d pick all they want…but who could really turn their back on a helpless baby and live with themselves?

I have absolutely no respect for, and in fact am horrified by, anyone who would put the life of any animal above the life of any human.  So there.  Find a way to argue with that – I dare you.

@peachacid:  This. I truly can’t in my life imagine someone ACTUALLY leaving a helpless baby in a burning building. It just doesn’t seem possible.

@KatyElle:  Why is this necessary, you don’t have to be mean like this. OP was just sharing a story, she apologized, her friend wouldn’t drop it. Does she have to call her again? Maybe. But gosh, I don’t understand how being snarky like this will help anybody. It’s just cruel and not funny.

@ZoeJane:  I’m actually not being snarky in the least. A post like that would not go over well I’m imagining. Please don’t try to police my posts, thank you.

@oneofthesethings:  So you would have saved Hitler, Ted Bundy, or some child molester, over a beloved pet?

@KatyElle: ‘s hypothetical was mean, but calling a friend’s newborn a useless snot maker whose life is less valuable than an animal’s is okay, because it’s just a different belief? Well, that’s new to me. I guess I’m out of touch.

@KatyElle:  Police my posts. lol How did you reach that conclusion? I just don’t understand why you have to be mean about it. Simple as that, no need for more rudeness. I really wasn’t trying to start something. & you’re welcome I guess…?

@ImagineDragon24:  I stick to my earlier statement – a human life is more valuable than an animal’s.  End of story.
