Kentucky Fried Chicken Protest: Saving Chickens, Ignoring Babies.

This weekend, Keisha and I drove by a KFC protest. A man in a chicken suit, a woman with a bullhorn and about 6 individuals with signs causing a scene about KFC's cruelty to chickens.

Here is a picture of one such protest:

While I am of course disgusted by cruelty to animals, I am more disgusted at their indignation for cruelty to a bunch of chickens while simulataneously disregarding human babies that are killed in much nastier ways.

If they really want to protect "innocent" life, why don't they come join me in front of the abortion mill?

    Good call. Americans amaze me at how they will find a cause and get behind it - and it will be a stupid cause.

    I think so many are looking for a cause- so they can feel good about themselves. However, they won't do anything substantive or even that would disrupt their lifestyle.

    I think we need to fight for life in all areas. Just as cruelty to animals can lead to cruelty to persons, I think we should not take potshots at anyone who is against violence to life in all of the forms God made.

    I know that I dislike having someone come up to me at a Clinic and tell me how I should be fighting some other battle. There are many calls to service to the Lord in this life. Perhaps their experiences will one day lead to serving the Lord at an abortion clinic.

    Cruelty should be denounced in all of its forms. Cruelty to the unborn is horrendous. Never denounce someone else's attempts to make the world a better place. We are not better than the chicken protesters, we just might have more grace. That will come for them. Gently. Patience. Love. Witness, my friends.

    I receive what you're saying, however I maintain that it's a sad world when so many get up in arms over chickens and likewise slaughter babies.

    It's about priorities. No matter who comes up to you or me and asks what we're doing about world hunger or child abuse, or anything, I believe saving human life has the upmost priority. Not chickens.

    Jackeline,

    I just stumbled into your Blog via Stephanie and am glad I did. I feel the passion for your signature-cause running through your cyber-veins. But lets also be cautious of something elemental to the Christian mind. And that is - God calls each of us to a cause, purpose or passion at a specific moment in time (due to various reasons, some resulting from tragedies). And yes, for others, it's a lifelong pursuit of that cause, while others "pick and choose" because it's a cool thing to do - the "cause of the month." However, to discredit the protester staring-down-the-corporate-chicken-hackers as an unworthy cause (not your words, mine), or less of a priority than saving babies is quite subjective and leads to a judgement call. We all hope that, eventually, the chicken/cow/sheep activist wielding his KFC/Burger Cat sign will, through much self-elightenment, wisdom and knowledge, graduate to a higher level of understanding why one cause is more important than another, and hopefully, on God's time, transfer all her/his protesting energy to joining you save human life as the upmost priority. I admire what you're doing a great deal because I direct a outreach project for teens calling for Abstinence Till Marriage. Keep it up! Peace...

    Marcel,

    Wow! Thanks for what you do. With 88% of abortions being performed on unmarried women, abstinence is a sure-fire preemptive way to save lives!

    Duly admonished. I realize now that this post would have been more appropriately placed on my personal blog and not this blog. It was really a rant because chickens are getting more fuss than babies are, and that upsets me. I will keep in mind what you said in future posts.

    Thanks for stopping by and commenting. I hope you'll visit often.

    Jacqueline (Jackeline) :)
