Should PETA Neuter You???

Oh, Coffee Talkers,

Truth really is stranger than fiction, and the news about PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) never ceases to amaze me. But not in a good way.

A friend posted an article today about PETA's request that there be a new Bible translation with more gender inclusivity...for animals. The furry creatures should no longer be called 'it,' say PETA reps, but always 'he' or 'she.'
After reading the article, I decided to check out the PETA website (which has become increasingly disturbing on each of my few visits there) and found a new promotion that PETA has presented:

Should PETA neuter you?

Are you the kind of guy who does everything with his dog? Are you a team player? If you're considering getting your cat or dog "snipped" and have thought about getting "fixed" yourself, PETA wants to reward you for helping to end human and animal overpopulation by picking up the tab for your vasectomy. We give out thousands of spay and neuter surgeries every year, but never before like this! Visit our "Win a Vasectomy From PETA" page to see how to get your free "snip" in a snap.
And they're offering this promotion in honor of Infertility Awareness Week. Because what would better honor people who have struggled with their inability to have children of their own than making a fertile man infertile?

Lucky for PETA, I need to get some sleep now, but I'll be back tomorrow to offer commentary on why PETA's philosophical underpinnings are contrary to a Catholic-Christian view of the dignity of the human person. Oh, yes, I will.

In the meantime, I am praying for all of you reading around the world!

Peace and all good,
