    Part of that discontinuity is that PETA seems to fudge its numbers depending on who they talk to...

    Pyro, did you have a chance to look at the sources they linked to? I'm getting ready for work right now so I can't get too involved.
    Been through them a couple time but been a while. Best thing to look at is under the chart on the right side that says "Skeptical? Click here>>>" That opens a PDF. The PDF is public files that PETA is required by law to turn in on an annual basis. CCF obtains copies of those files from public records via FIA.

    Just more of the same wackiness.

    I can still recall, some years back, a PETA table set out in my home town of Santa Cruz, California -- with a message then set to align themselves with the radical feminist movement present there. I'll never forget it:

    "How can we [as women] persist in our fight for equality when we insist upon biting down on the greasy bones of little murdered birds?"

    No kidding. Verbatim.

    Because . . . they're sooo tasty?

    And with this information out...no one has really tried to stop them? For example, not give them the pets for them to ¨try to find¨new homes and such? Kind of confused.

    Also, I cracked up on the PETA Kills Animal site where there´s a billboard saying in NYC Time Square:

    ¨PETA Kills Animals!¨

    And below it:

    ¨It´s a prime time to laugh. TBS.¨

    Going against PETA is an extreme challenge because they have a huge level of support from lots of celebrities (and you know our country is populated by sheep who follow celebrities like gods) and a whole heaping ton of cash. When smaller groups try to challenge them PETA just throws all their funding into slamming them back down... In those cases it is a war of attrition and the small group falls because they run out of funds first.

    There are some cases were the truth comes out. Like the NC trial. But it still ends up with PETA getting away with their crap because they have the big money for big lawyers and the legal system is so screwed that it allows them to abuse it.

    It's not that they're particularly bad; it's just that they've become caricatures of themselves, ideologues -- or, at least many of its California proponents. I know of which I speak.

    I don't care what brand name -- sexual, political, religious, etc. -- they carry or fall under; I won't deal with fanatics of any ilk.

    Let the fur fly . . .
