North Dakota Not Ready for Angela Simmons

Written by Michelle Kretzer | June 21, 2012

With all due respect to the Piano Man, I don’t really agree that the sinners have more fun than the saints. Most North Dakotans don’t either—their state boasts the second-highest percentage of Christians in the nation

When PETA saw that statistic, we had an epiphany (if you’ll pardon the pun) and decided that we should erect this billboard in North Dakota:

Angela Simmons isn’t just paying lip service to the cause. Rev Run‘s daughter and the cofounder of Pastry shoes is a devout Christian who practices “thou shalt not kill” every time she sits down to eat. She credits the Bible and her uncle, vegan hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons, with inspiring her cruelty-free diet. 

One glance at Angela’s figure might make a person think, “Have mercy!”—and that’s exactly how she does it. By following Matthew 5:7, “Blessed are the merciful …,” Angela keeps her vegetarian bod lean and also saves animals from abuse on factory farms and the horror of slaughterhouses.

Unfortunately, we weren’t able to place our billboard in North Dakota, but you have to admit that it’s pretty divine, huh?

Anyone can have a heavenly body and be angelic to animals simply by not eating meat. Of course, darling, only the meat-eaters die young. Well, they’re certainly more likely to.

    The only cruelty free diet is a vegan one. The torture, misery and unimaginable horror of the suffering animals is rampant in the egg and dairy industries.Stomach turning undercover videos of the sickening, torured, miserable existences of the animals can be viewed all over the web. You are not being angelic to animals simply by not eating meat.Kindness is shown by not eating animals or their secretions. Vegan not vegetarian. No cages not larger ones. No animal exploitation not just the kind of animal use that make us feel a bit better about ourselves. Enough already! We have to leave the animals alone. Sharon F.
