    My favorite was them *freeing* this 40 year old lobster that lived in a restaurant tank. No one was going to eat it. It just kind of hung out. So Mary Tyler Moore and the PETA nutters make a big show of releasing the poor thing to the *wild*.

    Ijits forgot to untape its claws... the lobster couldn't eat anything... probably starved to death slowly. How humane.

    Never did like PETA except when it stood for People Eating Tasty Animals. That includes KFC. The colonel sure knew how to cook a chicken.

    PETA annoys me. If you want an interesting watch, pick up the Penn & Teller: Bullshit episode where they eviscerate PETA. Interesting stuff.

    The PETA episode on Penn and Teller's Bullshit was very interesting. I especially liked when they played quotes by the founder of PETA, Ingrid Newkirk and her VP talking about how medicines made possible through animal experimentation should be banned and no one should be allowed to take them....and then you learn that the VP of PETA has Type 1 Diabetes and has been taking insulin since childhood. Her response, "Well...that isn't hypocritical because I need my life to fight for the rights of animals."

    Riiiiiight....my 11 year old sister-in-law who was born with Type 1 Diabetes should die...but you should live cause ya don't like leather.... :rolleyes:

    Look, I'm not a PETA member or anything but I've been a vegetarian since I was 4 because I generally felt and still feel (now that I'm 20) bad for slaughtered animals. I know that they taste good, but I still just don't understand why we must domesticate them to slaughter them for food. I'm living proof that you can survive without meat for a long time. Plus, just a question for the religious folks-- do animals go to heaven? Do they even have souls?

    Animals do not have souls according to the Bible. Only Humans have souls. But man is told to take care of the animals, use them as he needs but to not abuse or mistreat them.
