There was a "young animal rights activist", vegetarian PETA supporter in my sophomore Math class. She had PETA bumperstickers all over all of her binders and notebooks that said 'I don't eat my FRIENDS' and showed a picture of a bunny, a squirrel, a deer, a songbird, a raccoon, and a few other USUALLY-non-edible furry creatures of the forest. I'm all for the humane treatment of animals, ie: violent abuse of housepets, hoarding pets, cutting - stabbing - or otherwise torturing livestock or what have you, BUT!!!!! I'm also a firm believer in God and that He created this world and everything in it for our benefit and health. We should guard our natural and living resources, and not treat them poorly, but they are still here to fulfill the measure of their creation by providing us meat, milk, eggs, clothing, etc. I am in the market for a good leather
shoulder holster if anyone knows a good style/brand/etc.
PETA is way out of line - while they may say they're a non-violent group of picketers, everyone knows their words are the words that bring out the senseless destruction of property via fires and spray paints and even explosions. If PETA could go back in time, they would probably have attacked Native American Indians for their 'cruelty' to buffalo which provided them EVERYTHING from food, to clothes, to shelter and tools!
On the slightly humorous side, My wife and I saw an advertisement banner online for PETA. it had a little baby chick on it with a quote bubble saying "I am not a nugget!" we still
about it! of course baby chicks aren't nuggets.... yet?
I too apologize for my rant, but I am secretly a member of a different PETA. People for the Eating of Tasty Animals
