PETA Slanders Anchorage First Free Methodist Church, Offers No Apology

The extremist animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) accused the Anchorage First Free Methodist Church of animal abuse because the church uses a "living nativity" scene every year during Christmas. Trouble is, the church doesn't use live animals - it uses live human volunteers. Original story published in the Anchorage Daily News and also some minor coverage on KTVA Channel 11. The most pertinent parts of the Anchorage Daily News story are reproduced below.

People? Sure. Dressed as the usual suspects -- Mary, Joseph, wise men, etc. -- the volunteers stand shivering at a manger on the church lawn at Sixth Avenue and Pine Street, a silent tribute to Christmas. Calves, camels and sheep need not apply. So the Rev. Jason Armstrong was confused by an e-mail earlier this week from PETA -- People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. The missive admonished him for subjecting animals "to cruel treatment and danger," by forcing them into roles in the church's annual manger scene.

"We've never had live animals, so I just figured this was some spam thing," Armstrong said. "It's rough enough on us people standing out there in the cold. So we're definitely not using animals."

PETA was apparently misinformed. Jackie Vergerio, PETA's captive animals in entertainment specialist, said her organization tracks churches nationwide that use real animals in "living nativity scenes." Seems the confusion started with the church's choice of phrase. PETA flagged Free Methodist's display as a "living nativity," and indeed, that's how the church describes it on its Web site. Ed. Note: Click HERE to go to the church's website, then click on HeartBeat on the sidebar to get to the newsletter.

To PETA, that means animals -- a major no-no as far as the organization is concerned. "Those animals are subject to all sorts of terrible fates in some cases," Vergerio said. "Animals have been stolen and slaughtered, they've been raped, they've escaped from the nativity scenes and have been struck by cars and killed. Just really unfathomable things have happened to them."

In the letter to Armstrong, Vergerio shared some sad fates of previous nativity animals -- like Brighty the donkey, snatched from a nativity scene in Virgina and beaten by three young men. Ernie the camel fled a creche in Maryland but was struck and killed by a car. Two sheep and a donkey had to be euthanized after a dog mauling at a manger scene in Virginia.

Of course, none of that goes on at Armstrong's church -- which is why he was so baffled by Vergerio's letter. Free Methodist's display is totally peaceful, he said. The congregation erects the stable. They spread some straw and don costumes. Some may dress as manger animals. "We have some puppet camel things we put out," Armstrong said. "We have a cow hood thing that a person will wear that actually just looks spooky." The volunteers stand beneath a brightly lit electric star, as Christmas music fills the frosty air. They don't even speak. Consider it a meditative tribute to the holiday season. "A lot of folks will think we're plastic statues till one of us moves," Armstrong said.




Analysis: Note that there has been NO apology issued by PETA for having defamed and smeared this church. Their impulsive rush to judgement could expose this church to hate mail or even protests or outright vandalism attacks by unstable members of the public. PETA could have avoided this simply by doing more research.

However, PETA is not the only extremist group engaging in smear tactics. Earlier this year, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) designated the city of Olathe, CO a "Klan stronghold". Their evidence? One resident had his P.O. Box listed on a Klan website. The SPLC did not attempt to verify this information by contacting local authorities first to determine if there had been any Klan activity (there hadn't). Instead, there was a mad rush to judgement, all in the name of scaring more donations into their bulging coffers. Too bad Larry Darby didn't get elected Attorney General of Alabama. The SPLC would be fighting for its own life right now instead of randomly targeting and oppressing victims.

PETA not only needs to send an apology to the Anchorage First Free Methodist Church, but to effectively counter the ill effects of their slander, post that apology on the main page of the PETA site.

  1. Carl, you never stick to the story at hand do you? What the hell does animals in a manger have to do with a bunch of drunken klan members? Unless it's the drunken klan members who are raping and butchering the sheep or cows.
    baaaaaaaaa! baaaaaaaaaaa!

  2. The common denominator is that most advocacy groups are willing to blow issues out of proportion to get attention and scare more donations into their coffers. When they successfully do this, their victims are left to clean up their own reputations at their own expense.

  3. In that case you can't compare the KKK to a church's manger scene.
    The church was minding it's own business when PETA started their usual BS. The KKK on the other hand can't mind it's own business it's too busy minding everyone else's. That would make the KKK, PETA and the SPLC cut from the same cloth.

  4. I believe we are missing the point in part.

    PETA is out of control. They do what they "think" is correct without any due dilligence. One day some group will hit PETA and it'll be a shockwave aronud the USA.

    Someone will get harrassed by them and they'll go "timmothy mcvay" (sorry for my spelin. lol) and it'll bee a mess.

    That is what groups like PETA produce as an alter ego.

  6. Timothy McVeigh killed innocent people and I'm not surprised someone agreeing with Carl would preach that idea.

    As for Jackie boy or are you a girl? Nah, you aren't a girl just a pussy.
    I only deal with what concerns me and I never do it while hiding behind my computer.
    That is why dingle-berries like you and Hal Turner post my personal information on their websites. What I say bothers you and you retaliate like frightened children.

    You do know anger, which all you "white" ("nationalist", "racialist" HA!) supremacist are full of, is just a product of fear, right?
    What makes you fear so my little sugarplum?

    When you come out of hiding you just might become "famous" like crazy Hal! Until then you will post crap about my kid while hiding behind your computer screen.

    Meanwhile I will continue to mind what I consider to be my business and that includes small change like you, Jackie.

  7. Judith,

    I am mortified by the prospect of being your sugarplum. Is that supposed to be some sort of lesbian privilege?

    Quit your sniveling about your personal info. You brought it on yourself by slandering good White parents like April Gaede. And you know it.

    Anchorage Activist,

    I am very pleased with the progress of your blog. Keep up the good work!

  8. Judith - If you would quit the juvenile name-calling that you engage in on so many WN and pro-white sites, you wouldn't have gotten your personal info plastered all over the web.

    You've toned it down somewhat when dealing with me. Why not try it when dealing with others? You actually put out a pretty decent LTE in the Anchorage Daily News.

    Your hatred of white nationalism will not change the minds of any WN, so you're just working yourself into a lather for nothing.

  9. I didn't know you were a lesbian, Jack.
    And if I happened to be a lesbian I wouldn't touch you with a ten foot pole unless I was using it to push your empty head under water.
    You will have to go back to the Prussian Blue board and see if you can get a date with mama.
    If nothing else she might name her next brat after you when you go to jail.

  10. Carl, people plaster my address and personal information on the web because the dumb bastards can't argue a point.
    Stupid bastards call and leave messages on my answering machine because they can't argue a point.

    Anyone doing any damage will more than likely end up in jail just because they couldn't argue a point.

    And I'm not here to change your mind. I've told you before, I'm here to put "white" supremacists out of business. Just like the clown I wrote the letter to the editor about. If I had my way him and the likes of "white" supremacists would be sharing a prison cell.
    There is no lather here, Carl. It's all cool and calm.

    Besides, Hal never put any of my really good arguments on his comment board BECAUSE he can't argue a point. He only put the jabs that I wrote on there.
    That is OK though because he read them and that was my intent.

  11. Judith,

    Stop sniveling, jew. You've been a stalker for years. Now you finally have to answer for your Talmudic hatred of Gentiles.

    You've defaced photographs of good White people and put them on your blog. What you did to David Pringle was psychotic and childish. But slander and defamation is a way of life for you.

    Not me. I'll give you a source for the information about your "lesbian" daughter. I read it in the obituary of your dead husband, Peter Stefchak, published in the Anchorage Daily News. Anyone can verify it.

    Judith, how does it feel to know that Gentiles across the world are awakening to the hatred of jews like you?

    Have any arabs called you yet?

    ReplyDelete
  12. Jack, I'm not sniveling, you are.
    If it isn't over Gaede it's over Pringle, if it isn't over Pringle it's over something else. Boo hoo!

    So you did a stupid little search and found an old obit...whoop-dee-doo!
    It must have taken some real brain power on your part for that one, huh?!

    It really just tears me up that you slam my kid by using an obit of my late husband. I'm just crying inside, yep I'm tore up over that......clowns like you make fun of what happened to Jews in German concentration camps, how about those handicapped German children that were euthanized?
    See, evil shits like you don't bother me because it's the likes of you that murdered handicapped German children because freaks like you thought of themselves as being physically and mentally superior to those children. So whatever comes out of your small brain is of no surprise or shock to me. I knew where the information came from bozo. It's not hard to figure out.

    Now for the use of the word "Arab", it's a pretty general term when used by some people, rather like when someone refers to Africa or Africans. It's a continent and not a country.

    So are you talking about people like Joseph Farah or one of the Saudi Royal Family when you ask me about being contacted by an "arab"? Would the person be a Christian Arab, Muslim Arab or an atheist?

    Do you include said "Arab" in with your mad as hell gentiles? Maybe only when it is useful to you?
    How about blacks?
    Are they mad as hell gentiles in your book or the so called beasts of the field like clowns preach on websites that you frequent, such as Turner's and StormFront.
    You really need to be more specific here Jackie boy! We wouldn't want any of your buddies confused and scratching their heads (or asses) when they read your comments.

    Yeah, I'm really worried about who calls me....sheesh!

    BOO!

    PETA stands for People Eatting Tasty Animals.... We all know that, or we do now. AS for Joodaft.... You are just another sniveling vagabond JOO with a Sodomite for a daughter and a problem with running her Cocksucker. You CAN'T hide behind your computer, as you accuse others of doing. Your info is out there which was a result of your putting Pringle's info out there. You have attempted to threaten me... Which I find funny by the way. Your threats are like good jokes that I wipe my ass with. So know this.... The only reason anyone replies to you is that it is fun correcting your views of the world.... Like the "Holohoax" lie for instance. The Joo's wrote the story on that and it is thier/ HISstory. Where are the mass graves? why have you Joos put scholars in prison for denouncing the Holohoax even when they had PROOF the there was/is no way it could have happened? Silencing the critics?
    On a last note Joodaft..... Can you squeel like a pig? Or do you just chitter like a rat?

    Oh, you are so original! I'll laugh later though.


    "AS for Joodaft.... You are just another sniveling vagabond JOO with a Sodomite for a daughter and a problem with running her Cocksucker."

    Running my cocksucker? Did your mother teach you that one? Holy shit! You blather about sodomy but refer to a mouth as a cocksucker. Would that mean your mouth is also a cocksucker? Ka-rap Sam you are an idiot!

    "You CAN'T hide behind your computer, as you accuse others of doing. Your info is out there which was a result of your putting Pringle's info out there."

    I'm not hiding fool. Never have...
    Besides you have to give Pringle more credit then I can give you. He has never hid his information, bozo. So I'm not sure what info of his I added to the mix that you seem to know about. Again, this is what's so hilarious about you clowns. You put yourselves out there and then cry like freaking babies. Damned sad if you ask me.....

    "You have attempted to threaten me... Which I find funny by the way."

    Really? Are you worth my time, crybaby? I doubt it.


    "Your threats are like good jokes that I wipe my ass with."

    Well, I'm glad to help you out in that area because we don't want your ass all inflamed like your brain.

    "So know this.... The only reason anyone replies to you is that it is fun correcting your views of the world...."

    Yeah, uh huh!


    "Like the "Holohoax" lie for instance. The Joo's wrote the story on that and it is thier/ HISstory. Where are the mass graves? why have you Joos put scholars in prison for denouncing the Holohoax even when they had PROOF the there was/is no way it could have happened? Silencing the critics?"

    Nice crazed rant, Sam.


    "On a last note Joodaft....."

    So you are done ranting and spitting on your computer screen?

    "Can you squeel like a pig? Or do you just chitter like a rat?"

    You have me mixed up with your brother there.

    And use your damned spell check!

    Joodaft.... Your daughter's homosexuality is what defines here as a Sodomite... That is where the word comes from. The homo's that wanted to have sex with an Angel that looked as if a man in the Old Testament prior to Sodom being destroyed by Yah. As for your mouth being refered to as a cocksucker... well you may or may not have sucked one.... yet you have a husband. If you were a carpet cleaner then I might have refered to YOU as a SODOMITE too and wonder if you didn't have your daughter mixed in a test tube with some Vagabonds slimey seed. Maybe that is the case... and you are just not telling? That question is retorical so you don't HAVE to answer JOOdaft. What I do want to know is this.... Are you Cohen enough to marry a Cohen? Or are you just another mongrel? Maybe a Rat? You do CHITTER like one!

  16. Yah? Yah who? Or is that Yahoo? Was there a Germanic god named "Yah"? I don't believe I've ever seen that name come from any European country. Do you suppose the Druids of Stonehenge call their god "Yah"? Maybe it's just another "white" supremacist that couldn't handle the fact his old gods were lost and forgotten so to be the pains in the asses they always are they decided to latch on to the Yah idea? I'd say the latter.
    Otherwise I've read the Bible and I don't need a Sunday school classroom study with you, Sam.
    Although I'm sure it would be entertaining to see you shuffle through the pages trying to prove some point.

    I'm a little confused about your idea of sodomy though. It seems to be OK for a woman to have a guys schlong in her mouth. You did figure since I've been married I had. Isn't that a form of sodomy? Is that where your god intended it to go? Is that how you were conceived? So if you don't find that a bad idea do you believe it's alright for a man and woman to engage in anal intercourse? Isn't that considered sodomy or is it OK if it's a married couple (male and female that is)?
    Now if you believe in fellatio do you also believe in going down on a woman? Would that make you a "carpet cleaner" as you refer to it? Maybe you just sit at home and watch porn and entertain yourself that way. You do seem to have sex on the brain here.

    See your stupid arguments go no where. Make up your mind about what is or isn't sodomy.

    As for your Cohen reference, I believe we have been through this silly shit before. You read some blip on the internet and believe you know what is or isn't correct about Jews.
    Besides, I figured you considered all Jews to be mongrels so wouldn't that make a Cohen a mongrel?

    What I want to know is do you suppose April Gaede would consider you prime beef for reproduction or are you one of those who would be out plowing the field like a sterile mule while some other guy was boinking all the women?

    Besides.....I'd rather defend a Cohen than marry one. I know that is hard for someone like you to fathom but not everyone believes they have to be the high muckty muck like you white power clowns day dream about constantly. I'm plenty happy where I am placed in the order of things. Are you?

    The thoughts of the whole matter by a twit like you is moot anyway. In other words, you don't count!

    Anyhoo...I stand by what I posted to begin with. You can not compare what happened to the church here in Anchorage to what happens with a group like the KKK! I believe it's called comparing apples and oranges.

  17. The mother of a sick bull dyke lesbian shouldn't be throwing stones at others, ya think, Jewess Judith?

    Keep up the good work - one of you is worth ten normal people in the recruitment of white nationalists. You just prove, over and over again, by your example, how evil and pathetic Jews really are.

    HA HA HA - I think that goes to show just how stupid Judith is. She has a carpet muncher for a daughter, but doesn't even know what sodomy is.

    As for her "cocksucker" mouth, I can't imagine even a negro would stick his dick into that filthy hole.

  19. I wanted to add - to cut off stupid 90 IQ comments from Jewess Judith: Yes, I know lesbians aren't known for engaging in sodomy, but given the fact that as mother of a bull dyke, most normal people would assume that such a failure of a mother would have extensive knowledge of sexual deviancy.

    Judith has already brought up bestiality. Her writing style practically screams "I, Judith, am hideously ugly." You think it's safe to say that Judith has extensive knowledge of sex with animals from personal experience? I do.

  20. A bit of an after thought on Carl's comment from 11/26/06:

    Do you suppose that is why people such as David Duke, Kevin Alfred Strom, Hal Turner and the rest constantly cry foul about Jews, Mexicans, Blacks and others? It's to keep the less intelligent ones of their groups supplying them with money? The Jews are taking over! Black savage beast are going to rape your "white" women! Mexicans will take your jobs but not before they rape your "white" women, of course! After that the Jews will transport the women to the Middle East and sell them into the sex trade. PANIC! PANIC!
    When in danger, when in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout!
    So, Duke just uses scare tactics to line his pockets, right?
