Osteen’s Flock to Protect Pigs This Easter?
In its former incarnation as a sports and concert venue, the building that now houses Houston’s Lakewood Church must have been witness to the consumption of countless hot dogs, hamburgers, and other meaty foods. But if a recent PETA proposal is accepted, a bit of that carnivorous record could be offset.
After Lakewood pastor Joel Osteen expressed an aversion to pork products, PETA offered to prepare a faux-ham dinner for Lakewood congregants on Easter Sunday if Osteen displays this banner in the church’s sanctuary:

Of course, anyone can celebrate a cruelty-free Easter dinner—and PETA can help!
