God gave people dominion over animals, so there's no way any animal could be considered more important than people.

We all love animals -- whether those who are protected in zoos, conservatories, or preserves, or those who are part of our food supply and are proliferated for our use, and especially those we keep as companions (and who also use other animals as a food supply). We are all part of God's creation.

I think that Irvine is in Riverside county which is normally fairly conservative.

UCI, University of California at Irvine, is in Irvine and it is home to the "Anteaters". If yo happen to go to a basketball game their, one of the calls to rally the home team is "Zot", taken from the comic strip 'BC'.

When PETA makes a statement of any kind, I refer them to the Bible. Jewish people are supposed to "keep Kosher" in everything they consume, and the original text on ethics and morality is the Old Testament.

I've got to give credit to God for getting this kind of stuff right.

PETA is just another organization fronting for the "Great Liar".

Those fish it said were on their way to market. Animals are a wonderful creation of God's for sure, but Skinnymiss I would agree that this particular thing is a dumb idea. (I might feel differently if they were somehow raised as an species that was on the verge of extinction and the accident had wiped them out.)

What I meant by Dumb Idea was PETA wanting a large memorial sign by the roadside in honor of dead fish. I don't think it's dumb to put up a memorial for a beloved pet in a person's own yard. Those animal right's groups go a bit too far, in my opinion.

I'm sorry to disagree with you, 10ACBIRDWALKER, but I believe that people are more important than animals. I believe that God created us in His image. God has given us the task to take care of animals, but He doesn't elevate them above people.

This is what I believe as a Christian. I realize that some of you don't share that belief and that's fine. We will just have to agree to disagree. emoticon

My squirrel, Lucky, says that there is something "Fishy" about the request, but asks if we will be putting up a small cross for the squirrel that my husband buried last week after he scooped it up from the street infront of the house.

After 30 years in Orange County, I moved to North Carolina. I had a license plate frame made for the back of the car that read "California Refugee...and Lovin' Every Minute!" Weather only makes up for so much! I think it's the water!

Attitude is everything, pick a good one!

"It works if you work it, and it won't if you don't."

Certainly I have a 6-pack. You just can't see it through my soft sided cooler!

I realize that some people place a high value on the lives of animals, BUT, I think this is a bit extreme:
