Nutty professors: Calling pets "pets" is demeaning to pets

In a joint UK-US demonstration of brain-flatulence in action, Oxford professor Rev. Andrew Linzey, and Penn State Professor Priscilla Cohn, co-edit some such allegedly-scholarly work entitled The Journal of Animal Ethics.

In this erudite publication, it is argued that Fido and Puss-Puss no longer be referred to as "pets".

Hey, they eat out of the garbage, drink from the toilet and pee in my backyard.

I wonder what these nutty profs call an unborn (human) baby? I almost hate to find out.

I'm shocked. Shocked! to find that the erosion of human exceptionalism is chiping away at human dignity.

What with Commie Van Jones, an ex-Obama "advisor" and 9-11 truther, pushing to obtain "human" rights for Mother Nature. Ecauador putting in its constitution "rights" for nature...equal to human rights. Bolivia preparing to push rights to nature on equal plain with human rights. And now these two pointy-headed intellectuals..Bring on the lawsuits!

How much you wanna bet that suits brought on behalf of plants or "companion animals" will be in United States courts? With the lawyers the only ones getting a hefty part of American redistributed-wealth.

May G-d put a stumbling block in the way of these moral idiots!
