PETA in Springfield...

Thanks to Sophorist for bringing this tasty morsel of information to our attention. It seems that PETA has placed a billboard in Springfield with the Virgin Mary holding, not baby Jesus, but a chicken, with the byline - "Go Vegetarian - it's an Immaculate Conception." Just another incident of permitted hate speech against Christianity. Following the Tolerance post below we see a case where a Third-Grader's Candy Cane Gift Bags Spark Controversy. It seems that a third grader's attempt at telling the story of the candy cane was deemed out of bounds because it constituted "dissemination" and that was a big no-no. Gee, all this time I thought it was Freedom OF Religion, not Freedom FROM Religion. By the way, PETA does not stand for People who Eat Tasty Animals.
