"Times have changed"—as Cole Porter informed us—"Since the Puritans got a shock/When they landed on Plymouth Rock." So when PETA's sexy pilgrims landed to rock Phoenix and Tampa for a pre-Thanksgiving Tofurky giveaway, only the most puritanical onlookers blushed at their hemlines. Instead, the focus was on scoring one of those tasty Tofurky roasts (the Phoenix crowd snapped up 40 of them in 10 minutes!) as well as on all the reasons to set a vegan table this holiday season.
To give you a taste of the action as these pilgrims progress to Las Vegas, Fort Myers, and other cities, here are some pictures from Phoenix and video footage from Tampa. Let us know in the comments if you'd like to see more video from PETA's campaigners on the road.

Jackie, Orange, California is a college town. Chapman University is 5 minutes away from the mall...you should see how some of the female students dress. I don't think Trader Joes would care as a lot of their customers attend Chapman. Also, as a biker who ministers at bike rallies, I have seen women willingly wearing nothing but body paint in public, participating in wet t-shirt contests and ripping off their tops during bike parades. They are not protesting anything but they are perfectly willing to objectify themselves anyway. As a Christian I cannot condone this but this is what goes on in the world, because the world teaches women that this is acceptable behavior. That being said, the "Pilgrims" in the demo have their breasts covered and while the skirts are short, believe me, I have seen shorter skirts on biker women. I would accept a Tofurky from them, and in return, offer to pray with them for compassion for animals and give them a Christian tract if they would accept it ( I have a wonderful booklet which asks what Jesus would think about modern factory farming and slaughter methods, including the "kosher" methods now used).

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
