Good Friday, PETA Style

The “animals are people too”, group of loons called PETA are back in the news again. It appears that they have chosen to crash the Christian Holy Day, Good Friday, to try and make their lunatic cause somehow relevant. This group of unhinged moonbats decided that it would be a good idea to march about the streets of Vienna today, Good Friday, carrying three crosses, each with a PETA nut attached to them with an animal mask over his or her head.

As if desecrating the event of Christ’s death on the cross visually wasn’t enough, they also carried signs making the ludicrous statement: “We suffer and die for your sins of nourishment.”

A spokesman for PETA, Bob Friedrich had this to say on behalf of their demonstration:

“Words and images aren't offensive to God," he said. "What is offensive to God is the satanic treatment of God's creature by factory farms and slaughterhouses.”

This coming from an organization that was exposed for their crime of the wholesale slaughtering of pets turned over to them for their care and protection and then discarding the animal carcasses in garbage dumpsters. [So much for PETA's "animals are equal with humans and have special rights" claptrap].

Just who is guilty of satanic treatment here?

I would say that it takes one to know one but, killing animals to eat them is hardly "satanic". However, murdering them in cold blood after they have been entrusted to you for their care most certainly is that is, if the term “satanic” can be used in relation to the destruction of animals.

Personally, I think their demonstration could have been handled better by simply marching along side them with Protest Signs that state something along the lines of:

“PETA’s Next Step For Animals: First, PETA Tried Slitting the Innocent Animals' Throats and Dumping Them In Garbage Dumpsters. Now PETA Proposed to Kill Them Slowly Via Crucifixion and Then Dump Their Carcasses In Garbage Disposals”

The good thing about moonbat organizations like PETA is that the more they speak out in public, the more they demonstrate to the public what a bunch of arrogant idiots they truly are.

Let's see... If I remember my Old Testament reading correctly, God gave animals to us for food and clothing purposes.

Funny, I don't see the ACLU crowd decrying PETA's actions as offensive to Christians. Wonder why?

Lawman: the ACLU is about defending the bill of rights. Why would they prevent people from speaking like idiots? (Say what you want about PETA, itself... but the ads as described by Clay were bad, bad form).

Bringing the ACLU into comment was pointless, and frankly dilutes anything else you were trying to say.

Nice try Rich, but Lawman's question about the ACLU is appropriate. They are quick to challenge the freedom of speech of any religious person in the public square, but let anti-religious free speech go unchecked.

It's either free speech for all, or it isn't. It would seem that the ACLU is for the freedom of speech of some, not all.

And no, I'm not going to cite a bunch of cases where the ACLU has challenged the freedom of speech of Christians for you. First off, you are a member of the ACLU so you either know already, or you need to pay more attention to what your organization is doing and do your own homework.
