Sorry, I just have to rant...

I used to think PETA was just stupid, that their publicity stunts did more harm than good, but that basically their goals were good. However, their latest stunt has gone beyond the bounds of bad taste and stupidity, into the realm of conduct that is uncivilized, immoral and evil.

Last week, a passenger on a Greyhound bus was stabbed, beheaded and possibly cannibalized by a deranged man. PETA has tried to exploit this horrible tragedy by publishing an advertisement equating this event to what happens in slaughterhouses, BEFORE THE FAMILY HAS EVEN HAD A CHANCE TO HOLD A FUNERAL for the poor victim. That the equivalence is factually correct is irrelevant: the action is uncivilized and inhumane.

To me, this demonstrates an utter lack of compassion. How can PETA claim to represent the welfare of animals when they treat humans in such an appallingly insensitive and inhuman fashion? By this action, they have lost any claim to a moral high ground. To knowingly and unnecessarily inflict suffering is evil, regardless of whether the victims are animals or humans.

I can no even longer acknowledge that PETA's goals are good. The organization has no redeeming qualities at all.

[end rant]

Sorry, I just had to get that off my chest.
