Peta Promotes Breastmilk with Baby Jesus

maryjesus.JPG

Something that may (or may not, depending on how you look at it) appeal to the vast expanse of red states in the country: PETA puts the heat down on non-human milk drinkers by reminding us that if Virgin Mary's vitamin-rich human milk was good enough for Jesus, so too should we stick with the good stuff.

This would be neat and even meaningful if not for the fact that, once you're over the age of maybe three, it's a social faux-pas for milk-lovers to latch themselves to a nipple and partake (depending on how you look at it). Then again, people get riled up over the topic of breastfeeding anyway so here's a sanction from us: guess it doesn't really matter how old you are. Suckle away. -Contributed by Angela Natividad

Considering PETA is the #1 killer of domesticated dogs and cats in the country (http://www.petakillsanimals.com/ is a helpful link) I think I may have to pass on their advice regarding the benefits of breastfeeding. I think the slogan "kill your pets and feed your children the sweet mommy nectar" is a tad bit off.

More than slightly snarky comments...

I followed the link to petakillsanimals.com, and found that the organization euthanizes animals with broken legs, or who are otherwise suffering. Sounds plausible, even reasonable.

I have spent some time reading books like Eric Schlosser's "Fast Food Nation,"
http://www.amazon.com/Fast-Food-Nation-Eric-Schlosser/dp/0060838582/sr=8-1/qid=1161119679/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/002-2687427-8734449?ie=UTF8

Jeremy Rifkin's "Beyond Beef",
http://www.amazon.com/Beyond-Beef-Cattle-Culture-Plume/dp/0452269520/sr=8-1/qid=1161119668/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/002-2687427-8734449?ie=UTF8

and Ice-Cream Mafia-figlio John Robbin's "Diet for a New America,"
http://www.amazon.com/Diet-New-America-Choices-Happiness/dp/0915811812/sr=8-1/qid=1161119690/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/002-2687427-8734449?ie=UTF8

so I have a good idea about how many animals are hoisted up by their living innards and run though with sharp, buzzing tools, so that we can all enjoy our bacon burgers.

Sure, the folks at Peta tend to be die-hard vegans, whose profound, almost religious compassion for the suffering of animals ("little brothers and sisters," said the native Americans) has distanced them from the rough realities of human existence... But as fellow humans, I'll take Peta over McDonalds, any day.

As for breastmilk...well, not reeeeallly my thing. (Breasts, sure, but I'll leave the leche for junior)...

How very noble of PETA to point this out. Is PETA's stance on birth control as Godly? Or are they Christians of convenience?
