Washington, DC – PETA’s Bruce Friedrich has no business lecturing Hibernia United Methodist Church on the Christian value of roasting a pig. During the “Animal Rights 2001” convention, the radical organization’s campaign director openly advocated acts of domestic terrorism against those who disagree with PETA’s fringe political beliefs. What would Bruce do? Friedrich delivered the following chilling message to his captive
audience: “It would be a great thing if all of these fast-food outlets, these slaughterhouses, these laboratories, and the banks that fund them exploded tomorrow… Hallelujah to the people who are willing to do it.”
PETA has put its money where its mouth is, with its long history of financial support to convicted arsonists and other domestic terrorists. Last year, PETA made a financial donation to the Earth Liberation Front (ELF), a shadowy organization that the FBI has labeled “the largest and most active U.S.-based terror group.” Since 1996, ELF and its sister group, the Animal Liberation Front, have caused more than $43 million in property damage resulting from over 600 attacks including arson, assault and property destruction on a massive scale.
