Jesus a vegetarian in PETA campaign
World Net Daily ^ | March 24, 2007 | Bob Unruh

Posted on 03/24/2007 4:34:36 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

A controversial new public relations campaign by animal-rights group PETA proclaims Jesus Christ to have been a vegetarian, and portrays the Last Supper – complete with 12 "disciples" including Beatle Paul McCartney and lesbian country-music singer k.d. lang – as a spectacle meant to inspire mankind to forsake eating meat.

The outreach has been built into a 28-foot 1955 Silver Streak Airstream trailer wherein the "Last Supper" is re-created, surrounding Jesus with famous vegetarians, officials of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals told WND.

Dallas artist Greg Metz's work first was displayed in his hometown, then in Columbia, S.C., and now is headed for Norfolk, Va., according to campaign coordinator Mike Brazell.

"From all the demonstrations, this one has been the most successful in getting people to go vegetarian," he told WND. "People are visibly moved by the display itself."

"I've had people telling me they're going to be re-evaluating their food choices and lives after seeing the display," he said.

The organization's "PETA Girl," whose antics over the years have included appearing naked with a sign that she'd rather be nude that wear fur, for this event was Eva Carpinelli from Milano, Italy.

The vegetarian "disciples" represented in the "Last Supper" include the famed Louisa May Alcott, Kafka, George Bernard Shaw, Cesar Chavez, Susan B. Anthony, Jesus, Alec Walker, Paul McCartney, k.d. lang, Gandhi, Einstein and Leonardo Da Vinci, officials said.

On the other side of the trailer are graphic images of animal slaughterhouses, and available at the trailer will be screenings of PETA's movie, "Meet Your Meat," narrated by Alec Baldwin.

Jesus ate fish with the Disciples after the Resurrection.

"People will say many different things about the Son of Man"

PETA is slimy though, I really cannot stomach them so to speak.

They forgot Hitler, a militant vegetarian, of whom their precious George Bernard Shaw was quite enamored.

Besides which, the Bible specifically tells of Christ eating fish. These PETA loonies are full of it.

lesbian country-music singer k.d. lang

Unless something has changed recently - as far as I know she hasn't release a country album since the mid-80's.

Without direct knowledge I just assume she is still a lesbian.

Jesus ate the Passover with his disciples. The Passover had to be "killed". Does that mean uprooting a vegetable, in this context?

Are these people really this stupid and ignorant or do they think the whole population is?

Because Muhammed was not a vegetarian.

He was far too concerned with little boys, girls and camels to think about food.

Now Abel was a keeper of sheep, and Cain a tiller of the ground. 3 In the course of time Cain brought to the LORD an offering of the fruit of the ground, 4* and Abel brought of the firstlings of his flock and of their fat portions. And the LORD had regard for Abel and his offering,

When he said, "Render unto Caesar," they thought he meant a Caesar's Salad.

How do these idiots know what Christ ate? Personally I don't think He would have minded a good burger or two.

Excellent, a PETA article. Time to slaughter another sheep for the barbie.

Oh, and these PETA people must not read the bible. The Lord ate both fish and lamb. I'm not 100% sure, but He probably ate chicken too.

When the Risen Christ appeared in the Upper Room, He asked,

"Have you got anything here to eat?" They gave Him a piece of cooked fish, which He took and ate in their presence (thus proving His own bodily Presence).

The Risen Christ caused the fishermen His disciples to pull in a miraculous catch. Later that same morning they saw Him on the shore over a cooking fire, preparing some of the fish they had caught, with unleavened bread.

"Come and have breakfast" said the Risen Lord.

(PETA is skating on thin ice, IMHO.)

Please, cut and paste this away somewhere to trot out the next time a vegetarian friend trys to slander my Lord in this way...

--------------Logically Constructed Rant Begins----------------

    Folks, Christ was CLEARLY a meat-eater, and no amount of poor scholarship will make him a vegetarian.

    Christ was, indisputably, a Jew. We are told he was the perfect Jew. The Bible recounts that Christ was sinless, that is, he never, EVER failed to keep every letter of the Law as it was given by God to the Jews.

    MAJOR PREMISE: Christ was sinless. (If you believe he wasn't, PETA, then you are attacking my religion and are therefore "intolerant", the most horrible thing a Liberal can be!)
    Part of God’s Law was the observance of Passover, the ancient Jewish ceremony that recalled the love and protection shown by God to His people when he brought them out of slavery in Egypt. Before the destruction of the Temple in 70AD, the Passover ceremony included specifically the slaughter of a perfect, unblemished lamb…which was then, under God’s Law, eaten.

    MINOR PREMISE: God’s Law demanded that the faithful Jew eat of lamb during the Passover ceremony. (This is documented by the Old Testament, and if you challenge this, PETA, you are going against historical documentation, and being intolerant. The documentation of what Christ did is 2000 years older than your invention that He was a vegetarian. You lose that one, too.)

    CONCLUSION: Christ must have eaten lamb, at least once a year. He NEVER failed to do this, or he could not be sinless. He never complained or objected to the eating of lamb…how could he? He said he came not to remove even a “jot or tittle”, not a letter, of God’s Law but instead came to complete it.

    SECONDARY CONCLUSION: It was no sin to eat lamb, and by association, it is no sin to eat meat of any type deemed clean by God’s law. If you want to bring God into this, take note that in the Old Testament, all animals are placed under Man’s control by God, to do with as we will. (You Vegans missed that part. You might want to note that after leaving Eden, Adam and Eve wore animal skins as clothes, and God didn't object to that.) And also take note that God made man with these COOL sharp teeth in front…for ripping flesh. If we were supposed to be leaf munchers we would have all flat teeth like horses do.

    Also, in Acts 10:10-15, Peter had a vision from God that told the disciple that all food was made clean, even those prohibited to the Jews:

    "And he became very hungry, and would have eaten: but while they made ready, he fell into a trance, and saw heaven opened, and a certain vessel descending unto him, as it had been a great sheet knit at the four corners, and let down to the earth:
Wherein were all manner of fourfooted beasts of the earth and wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air.
    And there came a voice to him, 'Rise Peter; kill, and eat.'
    But Peter said, Not so, Lord; for I have never eaten any thing that is common or unclean.
And the voice spake unto him again the second time, 'What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common.'"

    If the grass-eaters want to do so, fine. There are clearly many health concerns involved, and it would probably be healthier NOT to eat meat. That is their choice. But don’t try to rewrite my Christ to prove your point. Jesus came not to address any petty little point about animals. He came to tell you that He died a physical death for you, to take away your sin and make you clean before God…if you will accept His gift and believe. The life of a single sinning human is worth a billion times more than that cow, folks. Christ didn't come to save the food. He came to save the humans.

These people couldn't care less if Jesus was or was not a vegetarian. Offending Christians is a marketing ploy. It has been for years. Say something outrageous and offensive (who cares if it's true?) and viola, massive, instant and free publicity. All this from people who insist that they are tolerant and open minded. It is to laugh.

This is hilarious. Like another poster mentioned, they wouldn't dare doing this with Mohummad. You know why? One, the Muslims are a coveted minority at this point. Two, the Muslims would go ballistic.

First of all, this is a ploy aimed at Christians, but the Lord supported eating meat and fish. Seconkly, how many of these PETA people are atheists or anti-Christian liberals? I would imagine most. Finally, certain members of the painting are people who don't agree with Jesus teaching as the disciples did (except Judas). They have that pro-abort Alec Baldwin narrating. The funny thing, Alec Baldwin is a Rat who is listed as a supporter of NARAL.

Second thread today where I find out that people are having their sick fun with this historical event. Even if Jesus weren't the Messiah, and even if there wasn't a religion of almost 2 billion people worshipping Him, this is still a painting of a young man telling His close friends that one of them will betray Him and He will be tortured to death. Anyone who thinks that's fodder for an ad campaign is one sick piece of work.
