this isnt even worth a debate. if vegetarians or vegans chose to be vegetarians or vegans - great. i wont complain.

but they better not complain when i eat meat, cause theres nothing better than licking, sucking and taking my tongue and rolling it along a thick, long piece of meat.

meat between the buns is also good.

i cant stand peta.

Back to the PETA issue. While I don't agree totally with the holocast analogy, it did have it's points. Especially in relation to Gabriel's posts on the holocostt survivors.

My belief is in the ethical treatment of animals, meaning minimal pain and suffering for animals used for food with a decent (in animal terms) quaility of life, humane treatment of domesticated pets, and protection of wild animals from extinction.

Last summer I was in VA Beach and I would have loved to call PETA. The strip shops had hundreds upon hundreds of baby sharks in jars lining the tops of shelves. Literally hundreds in almost every discount shop we entered. I finally asked a clerk where they came from and they were shark embryo's taken from sharks hunted for these babies. I was sickened and appalled. First why the hell were they hunting so many sharks in a beach area and the number of females needed to provides those embryos had to reach the thousands. This was one beach town. How many up and down the east coast. F**king disgusting.

scarlet, the point is peta is comparing their somewhat debatable agenda to the holocaust.

do you know what the holocaust was like, scarletwine? do you think that if you had survived it, and you saw some people who dont believe anyone should use animals for anything capitolizing and attempting to cash in on heart strings, would that not make you upset?

its sickening. if they were honestly interested on making points known to the people about animal rights, they would first try to gain respect from the public. noone cares about the opinion of one who is considered a jackass by all, right?

their reputation is horrible, and this is the worst example yet.

if i need to, i will be happy to gather some holocaust stories to maybe make anyone feel like an idiot for agreeing in principle, theory or in part to any of peta's rediculous hurtful propaganda.

I didn't say I agreed with their current campaign strategy. I just think they do make legitimate points and if they weren't so radical they could create more positive improvements in the lives of animals.
As to the holocaust, no I've not lost anyone from that tragedy, but I have read lots of survivors stories and seen many pictures. My 9th grade World Cultures class teacher was a spy in WWII and he was able to show movies from the liberation of several camps, that weren't released to the public. Some I think still
haven't been released. I was in no way downplaying that tragedy or actually comparing it to the human suffering. I only commented on how the nazi's fashioned the camps after slaughterhouses.

In the UK McDonalds was found to cause the mistreatment of cows due to the large amount of beef needed for their business, which 99% comes from South America, and the former rainforest.

meeganie, think about that for a second. do you really believe they want any old organization using the "holocaust" label for anything other than the actual holocaust itself? and this isnt even about humans, this is about animals.

and yes, if your asking me there is a big difference between the two.

and because i have not asked every single jew in the world to make my arguement conclusive, i think the majority of us "gentiles" have stated how rediculous this campaign is, so surely theyd feel the same way.

I love my cats more than anything in the world, my two little fat dumplings are my best friends, but there is line you have to draw. Comparing animal cruelty to the holocaust is disturbing and ludicrous. Also, comments PETA made to Arafat asking him not to use animals in suicide bombings, What? It's OK to use humans?

I need to have some Filet Mignon....... (O, and my cats don't seem to have a problem eating meat, why should anyone else?)

The word holocaust is in no way exclusive to the horrors that were executed on Jews in WW2. If you say Holocaust, capital "H", then people generally associate it with that.

But otherwise, 'holocaust' is used in a number of different ways. For example 'nuclear holocaust'.
In my opinion using the word to describe other horrific genoicides does not diminish the tragedy of the Jewish Holocaust.
