Skip to comments.Jesus a vegetarian in PETA campaign
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.
I must have missed that part of the Bible.
Passover - Jesus ate passover lamb and unleavened bread.
Jesus ate fish.
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.
What's wrong with Judas priest?
could somebody please tell me where in the bible is tofu mentioned?
Will they ask him for red or white wine to go with those veggies?
It's a Catholic thing.
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.
Other than the fact that Rob Halford is queerer than a three-dollar bill, nothing.
I'll bet Acts 10:13 gives 'em a real fit.

God himself ate veal, and dairy. Genesis 18
Are these people really this stupid and ignorant or do they think the whole population is?
This crap is very offensive to me. Why dont they show Muhammed as a Vegetarian? Why dont they screw around with the Islamics religion, have they got a building? Lets burn it down.
The latest indications we have suggest that Einstein was vegetarian only for the last year or so of his life,...
