Some Santa Monica citizens are outraged after a group of atheists
flooded a city lottery with applications, took over the space where more than a
dozen of the city's Nativity
would normally be set
up, and then simply left much of the
space vacant. PETA is reaching out to the atheists to ask permission to set up
our own "Give Peas a Chance" billboard in one of the empty areas.

In our letter to
the atheists' spokesperson, PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk points out: "From
factory farms to holy wars, so many lives have been lost because of an
inability to relate to others who are different from us in unimportant ways.
Whether we believe in Jesus or the Flying Spaghetti Monster, we can promote peace on Earth by
adopting a cruelty-free vegan diet."

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.
