As Lake Michigan ports go, Grand Haven is an angler's paradise. If People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals gets its way, it also will be home to a lighthouse café -- serving faux fish sticks -- where patrons learn about the evils of fishing.
PETA said in a letter to the National Park Service this week that it wants to take over Grand Haven's historic twin red lighthouses once they go on a list of surplus properties this year or next. Because PETA is a nonprofit, its bid to maintain the lighthouses could be considered.
The way the animal rights group sees it, Grand Haven would be a perfect place to drum up compassion for fish. To do so, it would point to research it says suggests that fish have feelings, too, rubbing against each other to show affection, developing individual personalities, even learning to grieve.
Kids younger than 12 who visit would get a plush fish toy that says, "Fish are Friends, Not Food!"
Some locals don't want their pier to become the headquarters for the proposed Fish Empathy Project.
"It's nonsense," said Capt. Jim Bard of It-Il-Do Charters. "The whole entire lake revolves around the sportfishing industry."

You think that the religion of Christianity mandates that children not be taught to look at fish as friends (but as food)?
Don't go trimming your beard either.
You don't pick and choose do you?

And of course eating shellfish is an abomination according to Christianity, per specific Bible mandates, so PETA should be able to skip the Lobsters Feel Pain campaign when dealing with Christians.
