    Not sure about the topic (I've seen conflicting advertising) but if you enjoy a heavy dose of satire, Comedy Central's "Lewis Black-Root of all Evil" topic for Wednesday 10:30pm is "NRA vs PETA"! (according to the teaser from last week's show).

    'Course, those of you familiar with the show? will know the debate is always about which of the two week's entities is the most evil.
    Based on the reaction of many regarding Steven Colbert's Better Know a Lobbyist segment on the Gun Control Lobby, if your head easily explodes, maybe you shouldn't watch, or should at least have a roll of duct tape handy! :D

    NOTE: This may have been pre-empted by the topic "Olympic Games vs Drinking Games"-they may have moved the NRA vs PETA segment back and are running the "Games" story since the Olympics are ongoing.

    Wow, Interesting question. I don't think either are evil. An association of like minded persons interested in influencing the populace and our elected officials is as American as apple pie. While I think that PETA ought to stand for People Eating Tasty Animals I have to respect their point of view.

    I am one of those People Eat Tasty Animals in the hopes I will have a topless demonstration in front of my house to entertain me while I eat some ribs.

    NRA supports a right as natural as that of breathing, namely, self-defense. PETA defies normal human conduct (consumption of animal flesh) and is out of touch with reality.

    Peta

    It's not just that PETA would have us all be vegetarians and be nice to the fuzzy little animals. If you have followed their conduct at all, you will have found that they are no friend to the fuzzy little animals. It's basically a front organization, although it's difficult to define just what they are a front for. Something between Anarchy and Communism confounded with New Age and who knows what else. I'm not convinced they know themselves. Bottom line; I do regard them as an evil.

    All I will say about PETA is to watch the episode of Penn & Teller about it. You'll realize that they are more than just animal-lovers.

    Gun related: He probably means the NRA is evil because it opposes gun control, but I'm sure there are many on here who think they're evil for not opposing it enough. Funny, isn't it?

    Maybe I missed it, but I've never seen the NRA equate Jews murdered in the Holocaust with the chickens they cook at KFC.

    NAMBLA and PETA are the cross we have to bear for having 1st Amendment rights.

    Doesn't PETA kill over 90% of the animals they "save", I read an article about that somewhere.

    I think that PETA is consummately evil. I've talked to lots of those types in usenet, and seen them in the media for years. They don't love animals, they hate people, and it's in large part self-loathing turned outward.

    There's a difference between respecting someone's right to speak and respecting what they say, or them for saying it.

    I respect the right of PETA, NAMBLA and the neo-Nazi National Alliance to (within the law) freely associate and attempt to "influence" the populace and our elected officials. I do NOT however respect what they say, nor them for saying it.

    If what you say is stupid or evil, there's NO reason AT ALL for me to respect your "point of view". Nor should I respect YOU for having it. You have the right to (within the law) be as stupid or evil as you please. I in turn have the right to despise you and to publicly revile you for your evil and stupidity. Anything else would be a violation of MY right to free conscience and self-expression. And if you don't like that, you can hate my guts and tell everybody that you do and why. And it's only the Catherine MacKinnons and Andrea Dworkins of the world who don't or won't understand this. I poke my fingers in their eyes every chance I get too.

    I believe that PETA would happily ban the consumption of all animal products in this country if they could. That, to me, is where the difference comes in. PETA wants to force me to adhere to their behavior.

    However, we as gun owners just want to be left alone.

    NRA= protecting US Constitution
    PETA= attacking a way of life humans have enjoyed since we lived in caves wrapped in dead animal skins eating dead animals

    you hit the nail on the head with this one.....and I agree wholeheartedly.

    My sneaky suspicion is that they are an organization that plays on the emotions of pet lovers and vegans, to make their hierarchy filthy rich.

    I love PETA people, they are unarmed, slow, corn-fed and delicious.

    Since it is for entertainment what value does it have?

    Pretty easy in factual terms. Never seen the NRA advocate violence against humans as does PETA.

    I'm sure many gun owners will watch it, pretty much the same ones who think Jon Stewart does a real news show.

    One of the things "younger men" must learn is that just about every aspect of the world puts a spin on their position.

    For example, I've reached a point where there's a burden to lying or even telling tales. But I must admit freely, most of you (and I mean this politely) will never be able to handle a Harley--and in the demographic of those who can, just about no one will be able to live the lifestyle. And I mean that in terms of enjoyment and survival.

    However, I enjoy the fun of the bike "spin." Ask Biker and Bikerdoc, we love the lives we lead.

    Both the NRA and PETA tell ouright lies, and they know it. And I don't mean little white lies.

    The NRA knows as well as we do that there's a relatively new younger urban demographic that is deadly and foolhardy with any firearm.

    PETA also knows that many people (not counting athletes and healthy weekend warriors) find that meat is an essential component in numerous diets.

    In fact, most of the old hands here know which of us are bald-faced liars, and we seek the higher existence as a group.

    Then again, there are tales of 175 MPH Sportsters told at campfires at Buffalo Chip...

    You can say the same thing about being "deadly and foolhardy" with the vote.

    Got a solution to either that doesn't threaten EVERYBODY'S rights?

    Is that a premonition of the economic positions you see us acheiving (or failing to) in the near future, or something else? Just curious.

    NRA= Better than nothing, at least they're on the right side

    PETA= Ignorant hippies, at least they have some really hot chicks for publicity

    NAMBLA= Only exist because it's illegal to shoot them

    my favorite radio station has an annual fishing tournament that launches and weighs in right next to the PETA building. You can guess what kind of antics occur in an attempt to spite them, both actively and passively

    No contest. PETA encourages domestic terrorism. Don't think so? Ever heard of Earth Liberation Front? They were torching subdivisions out west, til some contractor got one with a shotgun. ELF gets a major portion of their funding from PETA

    North American Man Boy Love Association?
    National Association of Marlon Brando Look Alikes?
    Sorry, those you watch south park get it. Peta is worse becuase they want you to believe what they believe. NRA just wants rights kept as rights.
