Chrissie Hynde is a big star even of some of you haven't heard of her. She has
been a PETA backer since the group began. Factory Farms do treat animals as if
they had no feelings. Factory Farms pollute the environment. There is a more
humane way but Tyson and others won't change their methods to make sure that
chickens are dead before they are dropped in the scald tank. These birds feel
pain as much as much as any dog or cat. Chickens are intelligent birds who are
denied all of their basic needs while alive. This issue isn't about Chrissie or
PETA it is about how we treat other species and the earth. These big factory
farms only care about profits and they treat animals as if they have no feelings
at all. It does matter how a bird dies if it is going to be food. Have some
compassion for these other species who feel fear, thirst, pain, and die horribly
for fast food chains. Become aware and educate yourselves. It doesn't take much
to do that and to choose humanely. Thank you.
why would you use euthinization to kill a bird? waste of euthinization. It would
make the chicken taste funny plus, it dosent matter how it dies it is going to
be food no matter what!
I have no idea who this lady is, but in her honor I bought a nice tasty chicken
sandwich and enjoyed every bite!
Let her go on pretending to sing and I'll go on pretending that what she thinks
One of our fans Facebook said the following: "I think protesters should be
educated before they spread gossip around. It would be interesting to find out
there is really meat in mcdonald's foods."
Some years ago I worked in a poultry processing plant here in the USA. We
processed thousands of birds each day. They were stunned before being bled, and
all expired long before their brief dip in the scalding tank. I have a
hard time believing PETA's claim that birds are "scalded to death".
What happened to the "I'd rather be naked than wear fur!" campaign. That got my
attention. I still am disgusted by the PETA organization and how it
all started, but it's always been about the money. PETA's very first
"defamation" was an attack on a Maryland researcher in the early 80s that earned
it a wealth of fame and $, but it was all lies and cost one of the most
brilliant neurological researchers his entire fortune defending himself - as all
charges were eventually dropped. He eventually found work some years later and
developed ground breaking treatment techniques that has greatly improved the
lives of stroke and spinal cord injured victims.
The only thing that appears scalded in this story is Chrissie Hynde herself. If
becoming a Vegan means looking like her someday, no thanks.
completely ignore 5 LDS prophets / they didn't forbide the eating of meat. They
said they preferred not to eat meat. Big difference. And chopping up scripture
is really fun. You can make anything okay. You want the rest of the verses?
Doctrine and Covenants 49:18-19: 18 And whoso forbiddeth to abstain
from meats, that man should not eat the same, is not ordained of God; 19
For, behold, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the air, and that which
cometh of the earth, is ordained for the use of man for food and for raiment,
and that he might have in abundance.
There are the lower laws, and then there are the higher laws.---
Duder, you double speak....What's your point???You pulled one
scripture (taken completely out-of-context, I might add) -- yet continue to
completely ignore 5 LDS prophets (who should also be sinners, losing the faith,
giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils -- using your red-neck
Cosmo -The Pretenders were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in
2005. Their first album is considered to be one of the best rock and roll
albums of all time (Rolling Stone and VH1). "failure" yea right.
84,000 utahns are out of work, for them it is a famine.And if we need to
get into scripture, 1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter
times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and
doctrines of devils; 2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their
conscience seared with a hot iron; 3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding
to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving
of them which believe and know the truth.
Please, all of you who are against treating god's creatures ethically, eat
every meal at McDonalds, every day, for the rest of your lives (becase when you
do we won't have to put up with you for as long as we would have if you educated
youselves as to how and where most of our food comes from)
One more reason to not go out and buy that Pretenders album I've been avoiding
getting for 25 years. By the by, I had a great lunch at KFC today- killed some
veggies and animals for it. What a world...
It's sad that some LDS members will add in non-scriptural doctrines of their own
like "Cola drinks are bad and evil", and yet completely IGNORE the printed
words in the cannonized scriptures - not once, but TWICE!!!"and it
is pleasing unto me that they should not be used, only in times of winter, or of
cold, or famine.""And these" in repetition of the admonition to
limit the eating of animal flesh "God made for the use of man only in times of
famine and excess of hunger."Amazing....
Words of Wisdom...Sadly, many Mormons today think bacon and eggs for
breakfast, a burger and a milkshake for lunch, and a roast for dinner are
somehow "necessary." They've also been programmed to believe that
things like obesity, cancer, heart disease, and diabetes are "naturally
Ummm, chicken nuggets...arrrrggghhhhh!
Blah Blah Blah, another failure trying to get the limelight again!
Looks like about 8 people showed up to hand out unhappy meals. I should have
gone just to get one. PETA is the best. I'm lovin' it.
President Joseph Fielding Smith's wife, Jesse Evans Smith, said, "my husband
doesn't eat meat" and he felt a "disdain of meat and (a) love of vegetables."
"It was shown in the history of plant science that plants contain all the
necessary food substances: proteins, fats, starches and the carbohydrates,
minerals...water [and] vitamins. The Great builder of the earth provided well
for the physical needs of His children. Countless varieties of edible plants,
vegetables, cereals, fruits and nuts are yielded by Mother Nature for man's
daily food. If one uses meat it must be used sparingly and in winter or famine
only.... They who wish to be well and gain the promised reward stated in the
Word of Wisdom must obey all of the law, not just part of it as suits their whim
or their appetite, or their notion of its meaning."
.. stated, "I think that another reason I have very splendid strength for an old
man is that during the years we have had a cafeteria... I have not, with
exception of not more than a dozen times, ordered meat of any kind. ...I have
endeavored to live the Word of Wisdom and that, in my opinion, is one reason for
my good health."
Concerning the Word of Wisdom, Lorenzo Snow paid "special attention to that part
which relates to the use of meat, which he considered just as strong as that
which related to the use of liquors and hot drinks."
Hey, quick. Remind me to care about what some obscure third-rate rock star
thinks about what he eats. I'm going to have my own counter-protest today at
McDonalds. I'm going to pull up in the drive through, and order a 12-piece
McNugget, a large Diet Coke, and 2 cherry pies. And I'll do it in honor of, oh,
what's his name? So if the Deseret News wants to cover it, they can get in
contact with my agent.
Joseph Smith added a clear cautionary warning to Genesis 9: 11 in the Joseph
Smith Translation (found on page 797 of the current LDS biblical index section)
reads, "...surely, blood shall not be shed, only for meat, to save your lives;
and the blood of every beast will I require at your hands."
No anger here Roscoe, it seems that PETA is the dieing breed to me, everyone
knows how extreme they are definetley not in the mainstream culture!
I wish I had been infomed of the protest in advance, I would have stopped by the
McDonalds to get some food. And I'm not really a huge fan of that place.
and peta-DUMB!!!!! If these yo-yo's at peta would spend half as much time,
money, effort, concern and anything else they put into protecting people as much
as they do animals, this world would be a far - far - far - far - far - far, and
might I add FAR!!! better place. Oh, I forgot, they were all animals in a
previous life, my bad.Hey, I have a great idea, lets all pick-it
peta from now on, for cruelty to all of us normal "people" having to listen to
their garbage all the time!!!
Mr/Ms wrote most of the comments are using up bandwidth with your repetitive
comments. The Pretenders continue to be well-known in their genre.
The comments of a fringe and dying breed. "Family values" folks that are
against the ethical treatment of animals and don't know who the Pretenders are.
Does your irrelevance spawn your anger? Go Chrissie!
I love meat, I think I will go and eat some chicken mcnuggets and eat them in
front of the PETA people haha!! mabye I will even get a group to go with me an
eat some mcnuggets!!, we will see how they like that!
Go tell somebody that cares - right now, you are using up precious oxygen in my
Chrissie has to pull stunts like this, otherwise the only she'd be remembered
for nowadays is writing the intro theme to the Rush Limbaugh Show.
People eating tasty animals - Go PETA!
This Article made me hungry!!!! I think I might go get some nuggets. Who is this
band "pretenders" anyway? At least get somebody people know to run your "hippie
this article put me in the mood for some McDonalds. I think I'll stop by for
lunch. They must love the free advertising...
The Pretenders - that's good - because they are. They're just seeking media
coverage and it's all about them - it has nothing to do with chickens or
animals. At least they weren't flinging paint and causing property damage or
injury. Factory farming? If you've ever eaten chicken, you've eaten factory
farmed chicken. Free range? It's all pretend.
Yes but chicken taste so good! You know they say it’s the way you
prepare it that makes it so succulent. McDonald’s brings fast food more
economically and profitable than anyone in the business. Quit trying to ride
piggyback off them in hopes of ending your ennui. It is not your place to
force your misconceptions on the rest of us. There are other ways to make
yourself famous. My kids love he McNuggets so lay off man!
PETA is irresponsible and dishonest. They have misrepresented medical research
involving animals while enjoying the benefits. Their president is an insulin
dependent diabetic whose insulin was developed with dog experimentation. Mickey
D's has bad food. PETA has bad credibility.
PETA and its members are liars!! Domestic terrorist do not deserve news time.
And I don't even like McDonalds, at least until today. I love animals, they're
