Would PETA Do This to Islam? Duh, Feathers Come From Animals

By Debbie Schlussel

Though I am not a Christian, I find PETA’s latest ad, featuring skank Joanna Krupa, extremely offensive.  She’s wearing nothing but a cross . . . and feathers, which–helloooo . . .?–come from birds.  Isn’t that kind of hypocritical coming from an organization that claims to care about animals’ lives (and euthanizes dogs)?  There’s a reason we call the organization PUTAh (People for the Unethical Treatment of Animals and humans).  And this disgusting ad puts the puta in PETA.  And then there are the feathers.

Writes reader David:

Is everyone missing the fact that Joanna has ‘REAL’ feathers on the angel wings she is wearing???  And the last time I checked ‘real’ feathers come from real birds!?!?   I guess that confirms PETA is ok with killing birds for the use of their feathers, but not animals for the use of their fur!!

I’m sure some people will argue that you don’t need to kill birds for their feathers, but in order to get good feathers like the ones on her wings, you have to pluck them, and that is not only painful to the bird, but basically takes away the bird’s warmth and, in some cases, ability to fly.

Oh, and BTW, would they do this to an Islamic crescent?  Don’t hold your breath.  It’ll never happen.  PETA rarely has the guts to criticize Muslims or Islam, if ever. But defiling the cross, A-OK.

Since Ms. Krupa of Skanksville is mostly naked and the picture is in poor taste given its treatment of the cross, I’m giving you the choice to click below to see it.

PUTAh…. in Spanish, it means “whore.” Apopros given the semi pornographic ad. So the Left exploits women as well as animals while it mocks Christianity. But they would never do that to Islam. After all, they both share the same value system these days.

And for both, modesty and respect for others is just that – fiction!

Oh thank God I belong to PETA !

Drakken on December 2, 2009 at 5:52 pm

That’s disgusting! Worse than Victoria’s Secret.
If these people ever had the misfortune to see a real angel in all it’s awesomeness (conventional usage, not the current slang version) they would faint from terror.
What do you expect from Pagans who worship the creation and not the Creator?

Joanna Krupa sure looks hot in that picture. Skank or not Id hit that with wings and all.

Big Papi on December 2, 2009 at 7:04 pm

    Big Papi, I couldn’t agree more. Hot, hot, hot!!!!

    jayeeegee on December 2, 2009 at 7:16 pm

Actually, it is PETA:
People Euthanizing Terrified Animals.
From what little was reported about it, someone found a bunch of dead animals behind a PETA office. Apparently they were killing these animals by the hundreds when they couldn’t find homes for them. At least that’s what they claimed. After they were exposed, they said it was OK because they killed them more “humanely” than the animal control department. Incredible hypocrisy. As for the picture, yes it is in very bad taste, and an insult to Christians eveywhere. But then again, what would you expect from a sleazy airhead and a bunch of radical idiots?

White Rook on December 2, 2009 at 7:05 pm

These people are sick and anti-christian atheists who only believe in all that is against Christianity, such as evolution. It doesn’t surprise me they would treat the cross in this manner, but it is sad.

@freedom4usa on December 2, 2009 at 7:06 pm

Ms. Krupa is holding a cross because she is supposed to be an angel. To the best of my knowledge, Muslims do not believe in angels – Christains and Jews do.

jayeeegee on December 2, 2009 at 7:15 pm

Muslims certainly do believe in angels. In fact, a distortion of the Judeo-Christian angel Gabriel (“Jibreel”) was supposedly the entity that attacked Mohammed in his cave and viciously beat and choked the prophet until he “recited” the Koran.

Further, angels are quite busy in Islam. According to the hadith, they do things like stay up all night cursing disobedient women, making hell-lists of Muslims who fail to perform prayers with absolute perfection, and physically assaulting dead people in their graves.

Funniest of all, considering the context, Muslim angels refuse to enter a house which contains music, a picture, or . . . dogs.

Cat on December 2, 2009 at 8:06 pm

    And the Jewish version isn’t fluffy wings, blond hair, effeminate features and long pretty robes playing harps, either. go to ** for a REAL explanation of these quite terrifying beings. It is strictly the Christians who distorted them into something they aren’t.

    mK750 on December 3, 2009 at 6:32 am

      Angels in Christian literature, and that includes literature intended for children, can be cruel and terrifying. Look at Hans Christian Anderson’s “The Red Shoes.”

      Miranda Rose Smith on December 4, 2009 at 2:05 am

        Should be “Andersen.”

        Miranda Rose Smith on December 6, 2009 at 4:12 am

agreed excellent post!

lindapolver on December 2, 2009 at 8:31 pm

That is soooo disgusting. What is next? She will wear a kufiya made of pig’s skin and shaped as Arafat’s face. Just wondering!!!!

Daniel. on December 2, 2009 at 10:56 pm

Tacky as a community bulletin board, I agree, but A) Are you sure those are real feathers, and B) is it necessary to pluck the bird to get the feathers? Is it at least POSSIBLE to wait until the bird moults and then collect the feathers? I remember whn my canary was moulting. The bottom of the cage was COVERED with feathers.

Miranda Rose Smith on December 3, 2009 at 2:32 am

I think most comments miss the mark on what PETA is all about insofar as what really drives them. Here’s a hint: Note how the vast majority of their ads seem to contain a very explicit “sexual” energy. They are supposed to be about helping save animals and improving the lives of animals, right? Most of their dominant figures are “female” in gender. “Murder” is a big theme in their world.

Connect the dots, my friends… Here is a group of people trying to offset a reality in their world they would rather not expose. Time for some serious shrink work on their part, but don’t expect that to happen at all!

RJ on December 3, 2009 at 3:26 am

As a foreigner, I know nothing about PETA, but we have a lot a lunatics in so called animal organisations in Europe too.
However, as a Christian, I am not at all offended by the picture. There is nothing offensive with a naked body, nothing offensive with a “skank” being pictured as an angel, nothing offensive with a cross being used to cover private parts.

leif on December 3, 2009 at 7:34 am

How will inviting American males to fantasize about having sex with her lead to better treatment of animals? I can almost read their minds now…Wow…She’s hot!!…I suddenly feel an irresistable urge to adopt a retired greyhound.

Regardless of all other factors, this is an ineffective ad.

The Terrorist's Advocate on December 3, 2009 at 9:57 am

I thought owning pets was against what PETA is all about.

Hopewell on December 3, 2009 at 10:19 am

The ‘strategic’ use of the cross is truly one of the most overtly ‘satanic’ inversions of Christian symbolism I have ever seen. The cross itself appears to be a true crucifix not just a cross-shape ie. the CRUCIFIED CHRIST is upon it. The image is so composed that one’s eyes are drawn hypnotically towards this gleaming central cross. THEN and this is the truly satanic-inversion implicit in the image: the male is sexually aroused into seeing ‘through’ the cross to the breasts and pubic areas, i.e. to ‘visually deconstruct’ the suffering image of Christ to ‘get at’ Joanna Krupa’s genitalia.
This is not a ‘disrespectful’ image this is deeply deeply evil and conscious ACT. I’m for free speech and it includes this image too. I am thankful when evil shows itself with such clarity.

Birds of a feather flock together…

Perfected democrat on December 3, 2009 at 12:10 pm

This is a Greek Cross. Not a crucifix at all.

Certainly, it is an inappropriate use of a Christian cross. And dogs don’t belong inside a church. And why is PeTA leaning on Christian theology to present their linear message?

Sexuality, and the salvific work of Jesus that was done on the cross do not mix.

PeTA has certainly made an enemy out of me. Good enough for you to tend to dogs, that is your lot, while we worship the Eternal One.

As an organization they’re entirely brainless presenting this visual prompt. I’ll be sure to remove their message, in any form, whenever I see it, when I’m out and about. All authentic Christians should do likewise.

The Canadien on December 3, 2009 at 9:36 pm

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! My immediate reaction when someone told me about this ad was “They wouldn’t DARE try that with the star and crescent.” (I even explained how it could be done). I will never take this organization seriously. Until they have the balls to use “unsafe” targets, I will continue to laugh at their efforts to drum up support. While I certainly do not advocate cruelty to animals, it disgust me that these people find it okay to mock and defile what others hold dear.

If you thought the Mohammed (or however you spell it) cartoons caused a reaction, just imagine how the “religion of peace” would react to a naked female with the symbol of Islam. The day peta does that is the day I stop eating meat. Guess I’ll continue to enjoy all those burgers and steaks.

And the nitwit who posed for this disgrace calls herself a practicing Catholic.

Amy on December 3, 2009 at 10:48 pm

Why the hell should they use naked/semi-naked people in their campaigns? Any how, she looks like trash!

Paparazzu Muslim on December 4, 2009 at 7:46 am

dumb ad… nice mangoes though. do you really think I would of thought about this if you hadn’t pointed it out?

Noah David Simon on December 4, 2009 at 3:05 pm

Hello everyone!!!!! If you look closely at the picture, it’s a painting, not a photograph!!!!!! Those are not real feathers. Even if it were “feathers”, there are man-made feathers, fake feathers, just like there is man-made leather, fake leather. I am a member of PETA and you are all idiots to think these are real. As far as killing animals, NO WE DO NOT!!!! PETA does everything in it’s power to speak on behalf of the animals. I’m also a christian and do not find this ad offensive at all. It’s an angel coming from heaven to help the animals. So what if she is naked. The first human’s, Adam and Eve were naked until they were introduced with sin. In the bible, it states we were made in God’s image so that means naked is the norm. Think about it. You are all idiots. Do your home work before you lash out at someone!

Pamela on January 26, 2010 at 8:57 am

    So what you’re saying is that you would take a picture naked in a church with a cross covering your bits because being naked while defacing your own religion is ok when you’re doing it for a national animal rights group that saves the puppies. You know nothing about Christianity….Thats all i got from your post. Maybe you should do some research on your own religion or find a new one.

    Rin on November 8, 2010 at 2:22 am

Actually, the New Testament also describes angels as fearsome. The popular depiction is just that.

BoKnows on October 21, 2010 at 9:11 pm

People just love making up stuff about PETA. Of course those are not real feathers. Did you think they plucked them off of real angels? lol

PETA answered this months ago on our website.

Re: kq. Rest assured that PETA never uses animal products in our PSAs. Thank you for your concern.
