I agree with that as well.

Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires courage.

I am not a fan of PETA at all.... Those people are nut jobs.... they are more of a cult than an organization.... My family has been in ranching more generations than I can go back and we have had PETA people let our cattle out, take our chickens, rabbits, etc.... Finally we told the sheriff if he wasn't going to do anything about it we will.... (By the way it is HIGHLY illegal to steal livestock where im from), so we started shooting... not to kill, just to scare them... it worked... and another thing is they like to go to rodeos and say what we are doing there is "one of the cruelest of all".... I don't get these people... they must be sniffin paint... Looneys I swear...

I really really do not like PETA. I know many people who suffer every day because of them. (They raise chickens). They should be closed down. It a very athestic organization. Just my 2 cents.

Its illegal to steal livestock any where in the U.S. but a lot still is and the vast majority by people that don't belong to PETA.

I didn't read through this whole post but I'm a vet tech and we went to a center that trains dogs for the handicap. This center had to have like crazy security because of peta. Them dogs are so happy doing their job. I don't know what their problem is. I don't care for them. Some Animals rights need to be protected but they take it too far!

That makes sense I can agree.. PETAs too extreme.

may they all have good fortune, good food, and an abundance of love.

just FYI, atheists have nothing to do with PETA. i am an Atheist, (also im completely against PETA) and i personally take offence that our religion (or lack there of) is put to a connection to this crazy 'orginization'.

anyway, im personally completely against it. PETA has unfortunatly brain-washed a good percentage of young minds. many of my classmates believe that PETA is doing 'good', it drives me mad. when i tell them about what is really going on, i take so much crap. i just think PETA is as crazy as you can get.

the biggest offence i take is when PETA people that telling me that riding my horses is "crule" and that they dont like it. they think that my horses (who where raised in captivity) would do SO much better out in the wild! it drives me crazy when people tell me how im not doing my horses any good, especailly when they have no experence with these creatures.

First let me say that I am sorry to hear that you are an Atheist. Second, I didn't mean for it to sound offensive, and I am sorry if I did offend you. What I was trying to say is that it is an Atheistic view that Animals and better that people (or that we are equal). I wasn't saying all Atheist felt this way.
