Support for man accused of killing opossum with cleaver

The man charged with felony animal cruelty for allegedly hacking an opossum 44 times with a meat cleaver until it died, as four juveniles watched and videotaped the hacking, was supported in court during arraignment on Sept. 20, by 10 or more members of a religious organization.

What religion and religious teachings support such a despicable and cruel act?
