...is PETA as dense as Francis?
The first pope to take the name of St Francis of Assisi, patron saint of animals, is also the first to be picked as PETA’s Person of the Year.
We have only one heart, and the same wretchedness which leads us to mistreat an animal will not be long in showing itself in our relationships with other people. Every act of cruelty towards any creature is ‘contrary to human dignity’.
It is contrary to human dignity to cause animals to suffer or die needlessly. #LaudatoSi— Pope Francis (@Pontifex) June 19, 2015
PETA turned a blind eye towards Francis' advocating for kosher slaughter back on September 2nd, 2013 when he met with officials from the World Jewish Congress.

Many of the mainstream media websites said that Francis considered the kosher and halal methods of ritual slaughter a matter of religious freedom. After being pressured by the world, Poland overturned the ban on kosher and halal slaughter of animals in December 2014.

PETA's website says, “Animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on, use for entertainment, or abuse in any other way.” So how does PETA figure naming Francis their person of the year, when he being an advocate for 'shechitah' (kosher) slaughter, was a good idea?
