PETA, Protector of Camel Puppets

Camel This is hysterical (H/T Thunderstruck): Who's going after nativity scenes now? In this case, it's not the ACLU, the People for the American Way, or Barry Lynn.

The Rev. Jason Armstrong just wanted to display a "living nativity." Those ever vigilant souls at PETA sprang into action. I'll just let you read the rest.

Rev. Jason Armstrong was confused by an e-mail last week from PETA that admonished him for subjecting animals "to cruel treatment and danger" by forcing them into roles in the church's annual manger scene.

Jackie Vergerio, PETA's captive animals in entertainment specialist, said the confusion started with the church's choice of phrase on its Web site. PETA flagged Free Methodist's display as a "living nativity." To PETA, that means animals.

"We have some puppet camel things we put out," Armstrong said. "We have a cow hood thing that a person will wear that actually just looks spooky."

The volunteers stand beneath a bright electric star as Christmas music fills the frosty air.

I feel so much better knowing cow costumes everywhere are safe and sound, thanks to your local PETA.
