Lentils for Lent?
PETA Donates Vegan Soup to Boston Shelter

Boston -- PETA is embarking on a new project that involves donating
vegan lentil soup by Amy's Kitchen to Haley
House in Boston in order to help feed those in need during Lent. Our
message is that Lent isn't always about giving something up. It's also about
compassion and discovery—including discovering new foods!
"Jesus taught compassion for all of His
creations, yet animals who are killed for food are usually treated cruelly and
can die a frightening death," says PETA Director Colleen O'Brien, a devout
Roman Catholic. "PETA is appealing to everyone to go vegan for Lent—and
keep it up all year long."
Going vegan is a powerful way to adhere to the true
teachings of Jesus and the Bible, which include caring for each other, animals,
and the Earth. Pope Benedict XVI said that humankind's "degrading of
living creatures to a commodity seems to me in fact to contradict the
relationship of mutuality that comes across in the Bible." PETA and its
tens of thousands of Catholic supporters agree that going vegan is one of the
most Christian things that anyone can do.
