With Easter on the way, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) have chosen this time to unveil their
a 10-foot-tall statue of a cow dressed as a pope, wearing a sash that reads, "Blessed Are the Merciful.
The Cow Pope represents PETA's hope that, during this time of renewal, thoughtfulness and forgiving for much of the Christian world, people will consider PETA's belief, that few activities contribute more to suffering--both for animals and humans--than eating meat.
The kingdom of Ireland is pretty damn old. Even Roman historians, in their day, considered it to be ancient. To their credit, the Irish have maintained the historical record of their kingdom meticulously and with great detail. One of the great kings of Ireland, who lived and reigned during the first part of the first century, was named Conor MacNessa. King Conor was described as being, "A tall graceful champion of the noble", and he ruled, it's said, with a fair hand, and a brave heart.
What makes King Conors life particularly interesting, however is not so much the noble and gallant way that he lived, but rather, the way which he died. King Conor, you see, was killed by the same people who crucified Jesus.
