Animal Rights Activism: What's the Best Way?
Comments by Maynard S. Clark - 28 May 2009

That's a curious judgment; it's not mine.

The question about PETA's historical impact is subject to careful observation. Your motivations are a different consideration.

Further, the RIGHTS of sentient beings are themselves a consideration different from your motivations, and if, in the total outcome, animals are WORSE off IN THE END CALCULATION than they would be IF ONLY we could be ALLOWED to persuade more morally moderate Americans that going vegan is good AND enshrining the rights of animals in law is GOOD, then even if the motives of 98% of all PETA donors are GOOD, the outcome of all that donation to PETA is (net) negative, not positive, and as PETA says, "good intentions are not enough"

On the question, "Was Jesus a vegetarian?" the quip surely is "He may have been a vegetarian, but surely he was no PETA member."
