Okay, Maybe the Easter Bunny Did Rise from the Dead

PETA finally stages passion play and outs themselves as self-abnegating religious fanatics.
Their Christ died for your lunch.

I don't agree with PETA (I rarely do)but I think in a western democracy they should have the right to do this, only I think they should do it in a different location than right outside the church. They could still find a place where they could attract plenty of publicity for their nutty message.

Yeah, I don't know. The thing that bothers me about them is that they feel that if you don't care about meat-eating, then you're not ethical enough to care about anything. Up here in Canuckia, we had a psycho who cut up a bunch of girls on his farm, and ate a few and got arrested, and blah-blah. So, PETA comes out to this little town with pictures of a pig and a teenage girl reading "Neither of us is meat!" and plasters them everywhere. And, it's just like why does feeling sympathy for animals lead to contempt for humans?

You have got to be kidding. That is just absolutely beyond the pale. Did it ever occur to these people that it might be appropriate to consider the feelings of the girls families and their friends, if not the community at large? What a disgusting bunch of people.
