PETA Blasphemes Jesus Christ

PETA ad to go up before Easter meant to generate compassion for animals
(But instead blasphemes the Lord Jesus Christ)

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is preparing to put up what they call "faith-based billboards" before Easter, one of which features a photo of a pig and the caption, "He died for your sins - go vegetarian."

PETA links pigs to Jesus in billboard campaign

PETA says the obvious reference to Jesus Christ's crucifixion is meant to generate compassion for the countless animals killed in the meat-eating culture.

"We have a number of faith-based billboards," PETA spokesman William Rivas-Rivas told WND. "We certainly plan on using [the pig ad] for the Easter period."

Rivas-Rivas says there are people who "always voice their concern" about the group's controversial billboards, but he wasn't too worried about opposition.

"All our faith-based billboards are meant to promote compassion," he said, "compassion for all God's creatures."

The spokesman claimed the organization always gets "huge spikes" in traffic at its vegetarian website, whenever the ads go up.

"I think it is having a success," he said of the ads.

Rivas-Rivas wasn't sure where the new billboards would be placed this year. Last year, PETA placed several religion-oriented ads in different communities, including the pig billboard.

Some outdoor-advertising firms declined to run the ad last year. According to PETA's website, a representative from a Charlotte, N.C., company said at the time, "It makes it look like Jesus was a pig."

Bruce Friedrich, PETA's director of vegan outreach, countered: "Today's factory farms and slaughterhouses are the embodiment of violence, bloodshed and exploitation. "Christians can extend the message 'God is love' to animals by not eating them."

A spokesperson for the National Pork Producers Council called PETA's billboard plans "just ludicrous."

Said the organization's Kara Flynn: "These billboards don't lend credibility to what PETA is saying."

Flynn commented if the group planned to post the billboards in Iowa, which is the nation's largest pork-producing area, the ads would "fall flat."

"[Iowans] have a great knowledge of the truth about what is done to ensure the welfare of animals," she told WND. "Putting the billboards up in farm country is not very persuasive."


Jesus Christ died a cruel death on the cross for our sins, and PETA animal worshipers continue to mock Him and use His Holy Name to spread their propaganda.

Clergy: Veggie Jesus Ad Is Sacrilegious

PENSACOLA, Fla. - Christian and Jewish clergy say a billboard that promotes vegetarianism by claiming "Jesus was the prince of peas" is historically inaccurate and sacrilegious. 

The billboard includes a picture of Jesus with an orange slice in place of a halo and was erected by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, or PETA, to coincide with Passover and Easter.

PETA's Bruce Friedrich said the campaign is meant to provoke the thought that if people are eating meat, they are promoting cruelty to animals. 

"The way that animals are treated on factory farms and slaughterhouses is egregiously cruel and mocks God," Friedrich said. 

But Rabbi David Ostrich of Temple Beth-el, said historical evidence indicates that Jesus, like other Jews of the time, was a meat eater. He said a ritual part of the Passover meal was a lamb slaughtered in the Temple in Jerusalem.


All four Gospels mention Jesus eating meat.

Matthew 9:10 And it came to pass, as Jesus sat at meat in the house, behold, many publicans and sinners came and sat down with  him and his disciples.

Mark 2:15 And it came to pass, that, as Jesus sat at meat in his house, many publicans and sinners sat also together with Jesus and his disciples: for there were many, and they followed him.

Luke 7:37 And, behold, a woman in the city, which was a sinner, when she knew
that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee's house, brought an alabaster box of ointment,

John 21:5 Then Jesus saith unto them, Children, have ye any meat?
