PETA’s “nuns” are towering over the crowds at the Republican National Convention all week wearing stilts and signs proclaiming, “Meat Is a Bad Habit. Tax It!” and “Slap a Sin Tax on Meat!”

The “sisters” are also cruising around the convention center in a convertible, holding aloft signs calling for a “sin” tax on sausage and steak—similar to the taxes on alcohol, tobacco, and gasoline—to offset the sky-high health-care costs of medical conditions linked to meat consumption, including heart disease, stroke, cancer, high blood pressure, and diabetes.
“Eating meat is a bad habit,” says PETA “nun” Ashley Byrne. “PETA is calling for a ‘sin’ tax on animal-based foods that clog our arteries, burden our health-care system, and come from an unholy meat industry that is hell for animals.”

Leading medical experts have determined that healthy plant-based fare can even reverse heart disease in people who already have clogged arteries.
