Animal rights activists storm church demanding pets be treated like Christians

The protestors believe that animals have souls and should be let into churches

Animal rights activists in Italy have stormed a Mass demanding that their dogs be treated as Christians. The Times reported that police were called to Santa Maria della Cima in Genzano to deal with a group of 20 protestors who were waving banners and carrying their pets while calling for animals to be allowed into church because they have souls.

The church was targeted by Animalisti Italiani after Roxana Grasso, 47, was told she would not be allowed to bring her Pomeranian to prayers. “I believe that animals have souls, are on par with humans and should be blessed in church, but other worshipers yelled at me and the priest pushed me and threw me out,” Grasso claimed. Signs at the protest read: “Animals have a soul – they will go to Heaven too.”

Under Italian law, the protestors could face up to two years in prison for disturbing a religious service. The group claim they staged a peaceful protest and blamed worshipers for the situation becoming hostile.

“We entered the church in silence,” said Grasso, “but they became aggressive and ripped up by banner.” Animalisti Italiani has targeted religious services before; in December they organized a rally outside a church where the priest had asked a labrador and its owner to leave a Mass because he was allergic to dog hair.

1. Most dogs probably have a better shot at Heaven then a lot of humans do.

 

Cats though..... that's a different story. They're usually up to something evil....

2. Good thing they didn't storm a mosque and demand Muslims treat animals like other Muslims.

Animal beheadings and stonings would skyrocket 800%

3. lol.. what a bunch of loons.

Can't even prove humans have souls and these assholes bust into a church and bother people trying to practice their religion. Animal rights people are idiots. I don't like or condone animal cruelty, but that's where I draw the line.
I'm no fan of religion, but if people want to gather in a place designated to practice their religion they should be left alone while doing so.

4. The next great progressive cause?

Animals demand marriage equality, and the right to use human bathrooms.

8. Truth. They pick and choose

Their soft targets.

Also.. how come the sea shepherd never goes after the crab boats?
They catch millions of crab per year.. not a peep.. one boat goes after a whale and they are out there trying to be heroes to save a fucking whale.
