Quote:Bill Donohue comments on the invasion of St. Patrick’s Cathedral:

Six young people invaded the noon Mass on Easter Sunday. With a bullhorn in hand, a 23-year-old North Carolina teacher screamed, “Only the devil” could create “animals capable of love and joy just so humans can make them suffer and die.” Many in the congregation thought that the camera that was strapped to his chest was a bomb.

Others held signs and pictures of animals, shouting, “Easter is a time for love! No more shedding animal blood!” The police and security moved quickly to restore order.

The protesters were not a random group. They belong to Collectively Free, an animal rights organization. It is confused at best and dishonest at worst. On the one hand, it emphasizes “Integrity and Empathy,” urging its members to “Show respect for and value individuals.”

On the other hand, it encourages members to be “provocative & experimental” in their tactics, making sure they push “the boundaries.”

Regarding the latter, the organization says it believes in “direct action,” including “actions [that] involve entering an establishment that normalizes the exploitation of non-human animals, holding space, and speaking out on behalf of the victims.”

That the two goals are contradictory escapes them. In practice, “direct action” is what defines Collectively Free.

Ham. That is why the activists invaded St. Patrick’s Cathedral. Raffaella Ciavatta, co-founder of the group, told a reporter, “Ham is a big thing on Easter, so that is why we decided to bring those voices to the public.” Not that it gets me off the hook with her, but I had a steak yesterday.

Wait . . .  They disrupted Mass because they object to the consumption of ham?!?!?!  These people are insane!!!
I was waiting for the reasoning and when I got there I was more confused than before I got there.  Ham? Really?
Extreme animal rights activism, environmentalism, and vegetarianism/veganism all lead to the same place: a desire for population control and an internalized dislike of your own species. It's bizarre. They no longer see the person as created in the image and likeness of God, but as a harmful cause of exploitation and oppression.
Stupid unwashed, patchouli reeking hippies.  >sad

Another article said how parishioners were terrified, thinking the guys were suicide bombers. I wonder if the SPLC will label this a "hate crime?" Perhaps I should convince a hippie to hold his breath until they do. Grin
Why aren't they launching huge protests at grocery stores which sell the offending animal carcass and profit from it?  I think that would be a more logical approach than disrupting Easter Mass because people tend to eat ham on Easter.

Must be the lack of hygiene and patchouli affecting their thought process.
Wow, this is so weird that it's almost comical.  Ham?  Seriously?  Everybody eats ham, not just Catholics.  Bunch of nut jobs.

These animal lovers should be prosecuted for high treason, i.e. treason against the human race.
It sounds like something inspired by the Devil. Invade the Catholic cathedral during Holy Mass.

                                      So why didn't they protest inside a restaurant or grocery store ?
