    Good to hear that you are now vegetarian! If you need advice going vegan feel free to message me.

    It may depend on what area you reside in, but I’ve never had much of a problem finding a vegetarian, if not vegan, option in a restaurant. Most of the time I look up the menu of the place I am planning to visit with my friends/family and finding out…[Read more]

    sentinel65 is discussing Religion and Animal Rights on the boards2 weeks ago

    I recently watched PETA spokesman Andrew Butler debate NRA Vice President Wayne LaPierre, and at one point they touch upon religion and animal rights. This may be something you find interesting, although Wayne sounds like an internet troll throughout the entire debate. There are definitely places in religious texts that can be used to support an…[Read more]

    I see PETA as an organization with its heart truly in the right place, but one that has some flaws that really can damage the animal rights movement. I would say the biggest factor that holds me back from supporting PETA is some of their ridiculous campaigns and stunts. Things like “State of The Union Undress” and “Got Autism?” are an…[Read more]

    sentinel65 is discussing Farewell PETA on the boards2 weeks ago

    I agree with everything that you have said here. PETA’s heart is in the right place, but the methods they use sometimes just shoot themselves in the foot. It makes it very easy for people to dismiss the animal rights cause when they can just point out the wildly outrageous campaigns that PETA has been involved in. State of The Union Undress? What…[Read more]

    sentinel65 is discussing There must be other options to being vegan on the boards2 weeks ago

    The philosophy you seem to be speaking of is animal welfare. The continued use of animals and their products would always be a process that involves cruelty. By purchasing the products that the suppliers sell, you would be supporting the cruelty as they would have no incentive to change their practices. Going vegan is the moral baseline to living…[Read more]

    I think the principle’s point is that he can’t allow you to put up PETA posters, just like he can’t allow someone to put up religious posters all over the school. It is correct that if you started an Animal Rights Club, then you could place posters for that club around the school. If he considers PETA to be an extremist group, then the point he is…[Read more]

    How does eating insects fit into the vegan lifestyle? Do insects have the same rights as animals and humans, and are they morally equivalent? Should we eat organic fruits and vegetables not just for our own health, but to respect the rights of those insects killed by pesticides?

    Some of these views seem to be headed towards a “bad publicity is better than no publicity” sort of mentality.

    I think a lot of PETA’s ads tend to discredit the animal rights movement, how can one take this ideology seriously if there are silly advertisements all over the place? It makes it to easy for people to brush off this important message when ads such as this are released.
