Un-Christian Chickens in Canada - Beware!

I am not quite certan what to make of this story about alledged “unchristian” chicken farming in New Brunswick, Ontario Canada.

Monks accused of 'unchristian' farming
The animal-rights group PETA, which earlier prompted monks at a U.S. abbey to quit raising chickens, is hoping scripture, moral suasion and the words of Pope Benedict XVI will spark change at Our Lady of Calvary Abbey in Rogersville, N.B.

"It denies God to treat animals this way," PETA's Bruce Friedrich said yesterday. "It's standard factory farming. They are denying these animals everything God designed them to be and to do."

He added that the monks' argument that they "carefully follow government norms" carries little weight.

"The monastery should not hide behind human laws, they should do what is morally right," Mr. Friedrich said. "Cruelty to animals is not just immoral, it's unchristian."
And of course a quote from Joe The Pope when he was Joe the Cardinal in 2002:
...decrying industrial production methods that turn geese and hens into "just caricatures" of birds. "This degrading of living creatures to a commodity seems to me in fact to contradict the relationship of mutuality that comes across in the Bible,"
A true scholar!

There is PC political correctness and there is PC to the extreme of the animal rights people - and then there is “unapproved, unregistered with the Vatican” chicken soup for the soul?

Give me a break.

Franklin Graham - Christian Demagogue

We used to have a good tolerance level in this country regarding religious beliefs. Franklin Graham is exhibiting vulgar hate filled demagoguery that was not the hallmark of his Dad, Billy Graham, as I remember him.

Son of Billy now runs the $400 million dollar a year BILLY GRAHAM INC preaching and charity empire. Son wants to measure up??? Is being a bit spastic in his hate filled remarks against Islam. He is not a screaming demagogue but he is a demagogue never the less.

American Muslim leaders want a conference with him to sit down and talk. That ain't going to happen.

Delivering rice in jets to natives in Alaska combined with photo-ops with Alaskan governor S. Palin is about all I know or see of this very well heeled Christian. That and the occasional hate speech.

The taxes not paid by Franklin could feed cities somewhere and not villages elsewhere. I can only imagine that fear is the factor behind his hate laced words and not the true spirit of Jesus. Are the Muslims muscling in on the charity rackets share of the economic pie in these tough economics times?

America seems of late to be turning into one big gangster racket from Wall Street to main street. With tax free religions and tax abated non-profit "charities" as well as the non tax paying new royalty on Wall Street - it all seems to be turning into one big turf war - over power and money - in this country.

The main stream media are bought and paid for by the money changers like Graham. He goes about spewing hate in the name of Jeebu$ unchallenged.

Evil wicked religion: Franklin Graham's attack on Islam
In 2001, Graham stood by remarks he made about Islam at the dedication of a chapel in North Carolina. At that event, he said: "We're not attacking Islam but Islam has attacked us. The God of Islam is not the same God. He's not the son of God of the Christian or Judeo-Christian faith. It's a different God, and I believe it is a very evil and wicked religion."

Graham's ignorance is astonishing. The God of Islam is identical to the God of the Judeo Christian faith. Anyone with the slightest knowledge of comparative religion knows that both traditions worship the God of Abraham.
Whatever happened to the occasional turning of the Christian cheek - Franklin?

He is sweet as honey in this video below - some of his best friends are Muslims - but it is a violent religion? He talks about one small slice of the global Islam.

Any comments from any of you violent Muslims out there?
