Israel is at war -- declared or undeclared -- as long as rockets are fired into population centers!


PETA’s Thanksgiving 2012 Campaign …


Animal rights activists, you really want the answer …

1.  Because GOD said it was OK …

Genesis 9:1-4 (King James Version)

9:1      And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.

9:2      And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth upon the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered.

9:3      Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.

9:4      But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat.

2.   I do not have an emotional attachment to a turkey because it is not my pet.

3.    Because I need some place to put the stuffing.

4.    Because I like the taste of turkey and it is a healthful food.

5.    And because I am a card-carrying member of PETA: People Eating Tasty Animals.

Something you might want to consider …

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is an American animal rights organization based in Norfolk, Virginia, and led by Ingrid Newkirk, its international president. A non-profit corporation with 300 employees and two million members and supporters, it claims to be the largest animal rights group in the world. Its slogan is "animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on, or use for entertainment.” <Source>

An amazing position that defies human practice since the dawn of time. 

PETA has no problem lying to people about finding homes for their beloved pets and then KILLING them …

PETA's "Animal Record" report for 2008, filed with the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, shows that the animal rights group killed 95 percent of the dogs and cats in its care last year. During all of 2008, PeTA accepted 2,216 pets. Of the 2,216 animals, PeTA found adoptive homes for just seven pets. This brings the total animals killed by PeTA from July 1998 to December 2008 up to over 21,000.

I often receive phone calls from frantic people who have surrendered their pets to PeTA with the understanding that PeTA will 'find them a good home.' Many of them are led to believe that the animals will be taken to a nearby shelter. Little do they know that the pets are killed in the PeTA van before they even pull away from the pet owner's home. -- -- Dana Cheek, Former Norfolk SPCA Director

Ingrid Newkirk has never denied this statement. In fact, she has stated that PeTA has never hid the fact that most animals are euthanized as a matter of policy.

"It is a totally rotten business, but sometimes the only kind option for some animals is to put them to sleep forever... It sounds lovely if you're naïve. We could become a no-kill shelter immediately. It means we wouldn't do as much work."
-- Ingrid Newkirk, PeTA President, The Virginian-Pilot, August 1, 2000

"I would go to work early, before anyone got there, and I would just kill the animals myself. Because I couldn't stand to let them go through other workers abusing the animals. I must have killed thousands of them, sometimes dozens everyday."
-- Ingrid Newkirk, PeTA President, The New Yorker, April 14, 2003

"We are not in the home finding business, although it is certainly true that we do find homes from time to time for the kind of animals people are looking for. Our service is to provide a peaceful and painless death to animals who no one wants."
-- Ingrid Newkirk, PeTA President, The Virginian-Pilot, July 20, 2005


Bottom line …

Whack ‘em, stack ‘em, fill ‘em and grill' ‘em!

But, seriously, killing an animal for sport or for food should be deliberate, thoughtful, respectful and humane. A position taken by the great majority of sportsmen and women in the world. If you believe differently, fine – don’t eat meat and wear clothing made from animal products. Continue your activism – but leave the lying, hatred, demonization, hypocrisy, violence and criminal acts at home.
