PETA: Eating Meat = Human Slavery

PETA, as they so often do, has caused quite the firestorm with today’s co-opting of Martin Luther King Day. “The fate of animals today is similar to that of humans who were subjected to slavery and other civil rights injustices—they, too, are tortured, abused, and neglected as humans once were and sometimes still are. More than 63 billion animals are slaughtered every year in the United States for the food industry, without even a thought to their feelings or needs.” The right wing site Townhall is directing readers to a photo of MLK eating meat.
