PETA and Pope Francis’ Peace Doves


Yesterday Pope Francis had a bad day. While addressing the Sunday crowd in St. Peter’s Square he had a young man and woman release two doves as symbols of peace.  Unfortunately these birds were soon flying for their lives in an attempt to elude larger birds who evidently dine on doves. There was nothing peaceful about the scene. One can only pray that the Holy Father’s security contingent does more research than those who plan his Sunday events. I certainly hope the poor papal pigeons made it to safety, but I was wondering what the folks at PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) might have to say about the incident.
