    I cannot and will not ever support PETA. I was a member of a hunt that did everything to avoid any kills. PETA picketed out meet one time. A PETA member walked up to a members horse and punched it in the face. Called it a slave and murderer, or something like that. I thought that person would look perfect with a deep hoofmark in the middle of her face.

Either of you have cross the line yet but are headed that way at a full gallop and are spurring.

    Debating is not the problem and that is fine. I said that solely to keep it from a debate into a fight and that is were I thought it was headed in a few more post.

    I don't feel like going threw 25 pages so here is my opinion...
    PETA`s misson is to destroy human domestication of animals.
    I am all for stopping animal cruelty but I am the voice for my animals not PETA there is animal lovers and haters I will protect my animals with my life if it comes to that PETA has no concern for animal lovers and they are paying celebs big buck to do adds for this junk and they do it with there heads held to high!!!

    I'm a card carrying member of PETA.

    People Eating Tasty Animals, that is!

    There's room for all of God's creatures. Right on my plate, next to the mashed potatoes.

    Like I said, yes there are members of PETA who have the animals interest in mind. However the people who make the decisions and manage the funds, do not. Thus, I rather support people who care about the animals than a group like PETA who does not.

    Spastic, in my mind PETA and the HSUS are pretty much one and the same.

    They want all domestic species to die off, and our 'subjugation' of them stopped.

    What I don't understand, is why any animal owner/lover would support either of them. They're out to get everyone's animals, not just the people who are cruel, neglectful, and inhumane.

    If PETA/HSUS get their way, dogs, cats, horses, cows, sheep, goats, pigs, guinea pigs, hamsters, etc. will all be outlawed.

    Yes all you anti-slaughter advocates, even you will not be allowed to own any animals!

    Saying that they do 'some good' is naive. Both of them are only in it for the publicity and donations. They do far more harm than good, and anyone with half a brain should realize these organizations are bad news.

    The ASPCA and any state SPCAs are not affiliated with the HSUS in any way, shape, or form. I'll bet many of those who support them are not aware of that fact.

    The HSUS wants people to think they are, so imply that they're part of the SPCA organizations without actually coming out and saying so. If confronted, they can always claim they never told anyone they were affiliated.

    That is exactly my point.

    Generally, from what I have seen, people who join PETA without understanding the group generally have animals in mind. Same goes for HSUS. Most people I have talked to think they are going to help animals in shelters, get animals homes, etc. Are these people naive? Sure. But they probably do have the best interest in the animal in mind and that is just because PETA and HSUS, like you mentioned, want people to think they are helping the animals.

    That is why I am saying do not support an organization especially not PETA or HSUS.
    Instead volunteer at an animal shelter, donate pet foods, sponser an animal instead.
