Do you know how PETA was founded? By liars. The face of PETA, Ingrid Newkirk, is insane. She was a poundmaster in the 70s and testifies to euthanizing thousands of animals as a way to "rescue them" from people. She firmly believes people shouldn't have pets because you shouldn't "own" animals. So what, let the dogs and cats run amok in the streets, just make sure we spay/neuter? That's crazy! She's anti-fur, anti-meat, anti-by products (milk, cheese, eggs)...
I believe the American Indians had it right. They killed only what they needed, both plant and animal. They thanked the Spirits for what they were given. They ate for strength rather than pleasure. They took care to give back, rather than just take and take. They respected Mother Earth.
A plant is a living organism, just as animals are. There are studies that show plants react to words like "cut" and "I hate you," just as an animal would. Newkirk certainly has no problems eating plants.
What else is wrong with PETA? Look here at the number of animals they kill each year: http://www.petakillsanimals.com/proof/
PETA rooted for the death of all of the dogs rescued in the Michael Vick dog-fighting incident. They said the dogs should all be euthanized, and that there was no hope for rehabilitation. Fortunately, groups like BAD RAP didn't listen. You can read the Vick Dogs stories here: http://vickdogsblog.blogspot.com/
Although PETA didn't advocate for the dogs, they sure attacked Michael Vick. They sure attacked him, though. http://www.peta.org/b/thepetafiles/archive/tags/Michael+Vick/default.aspx
In case none of the above enlightens you, here is further proof of Newkirk's insanity:
From PETA's website, here is her Last Will & Testament:
