According to PETA:
The Cow Pope challenges people to view the world from another animal's point of view--to imagine what it must be like to be bred, tortured, and, finally, slaughtered in the most excruciatingly painful ways. It's also a call to the faithful to reflect on their food choices and to the Vatican to break its silence regarding the abuse of animals raised and killed for food and the ravaging effects that eating meat has on the human body--obesity, heart disease, diabetes, and cancer--and soul.The hope is that this compelling exhibit will make anyone who sees it consider becoming a vegetarian -- truly a new beginning in the spirit of Easter. In the words of Pope John Paul:
"What is needed is the more profound and infinitely more creative power of hope. This is the word I speak to you today-hope; and it is the word which the Church never ceases to speak in all her efforts to go to the roots of suffering in the world." -His Holiness, Pope John Paul IINot being a vegetarian myself, I must say that the pictures alone have made me consider the possibility. How about you?
