“If the state legislature moves forward with this one, then they should change Kentucky's state bird from the cardinal to the debeaked, crippled, scalded, diseased, dead chicken”

Animals rights advocates are squawking at a measure that would make fried chicken Kentucky's official picnic food. via WIBW-TV Topeka

PETA is a bunch of terroristic idiots that scare only themselves. They should spend daddy's money on cureing childhood dieseases instead of bothering taxpaying citizens.

As a former (reluctantly) vegetarian, I can see both of you have come at your arguments with a lot of research and critical thinking. PETA is merely of the position that if you want to identify an official (this is SO important) picnic food…then perhaps you could choose one that doesn't needlessly kill animals. Certainly there's room for debate here? Why wouldn't watermelon suffice? This is a ridiculous arguement, and your reactions are equally so. We're an "evolved", species…or so some would think. Why kill in the name of "novelty"? Use a little care with your accusations…PETA aren't a bunch of terrorists. Are you frightened by them? Screw PETA? That's reactionary—and ignorant too boot!

they need to take the money that is donated to them and take care of the animals that they remove from homes instead of buy drugs to kill them with. They are worse then the people they take the animals from, animals slaughtered for human comsumptions is what god intended them for. God did not intend for dogs and cats to be put to death cruley and wind up in garbage dumpsters.

AS FAR AS PETA GOES THEY ARE IN OUR TOP 20 TERRIOUS LIST IN THE USA.IF SOMEONE WANTS TO STAND UP FOR THE ANIMALS THEN FIND A WAY TO DO IT WITHOUT HURTING THE ANIMALS OR PEOPLE.PETA NEEDS TO LEARN THAT THERE ARE OTHER WAYS TO HELP ANIMALS OTHER THAN HARMING THE ANIMALS OR PEOPLE.COWS,RABBITS,GOATS,SHEE P,HORSES,ECT... ARE VEGETARIANS.DOGS,CATS,WOLFS,LI ONS,ECT ARE CONAVORES AND STRICKLEY EAT MEAT AND THERE ARE HUMANS AND OTHER MAMMALS THAT ARE OMNIVORES.GOD MADE US THIS WAY AND PETA NOR ANYONE ELSE CAN CHANGE THE WAY GOD MADE US.HE PUT EACH AND EVERYONE OF US ON THIS EARTH TO SURVE A PURPOSE.HIS PURPOSE NOT MANS PURPOSE..THATS THEY WAY ITS BEEN SINCE THE BEGGING AND IT WILL BE THAT WAY IN THE END.SO PETA GET A GRIP AND LET PEOPLE AND ANIMALS LIVE OUT THE PURPOSE WE WERE EACH MADE FOR.

First of all, GOD did not make us to eat meat. Humans used to rely on mostly vegetables, grain, and fruit, with an occaisional ham or hen at the holidays. Now we daily founder ourselves on hormone-pumped 14 day old chickens that are forced to live so cramped that their feet actually grow around the metal cages. So now we have high cholesterol, high blood pressure, obesity, increased cancer rates...and the list goes on.

But it sounds like you guys have a pretty good arguement against it. Calling us idiots is a big blow. I'm the one with the statistically longer lifespan of 6-10 years than that of my meat-eater peers.(That means I'll probably live longer, if you didn't understand.)
