Ottawa -- This morning, PETA sent a letter to Chris Henderson, chair of the Kitchissippi United Church Congregational Council, offering to buy space on the Westboro United Church to display a banner that reads, "God Loves All Creatures. Stop the Seal Slaughter." The council owns the Westboro United building, which has fallen into disrepair and is for sale. Every year, tens of thousands of baby seals have their heads bashed in or are shot during the commercial seal slaughter, which is an off-season profit venture for the fishing industry.
"Our proposal is a win-win solution: It will raise awareness about Canada's shameful seal massacre and provide the church with much-needed funds at the same time," says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. "What better use for a proud old church than to have it serve as a beacon for showing compassion for others?"

Dear Mr. Henderson,
In light of the recent news that the Westboro United Church has been put up for sale, PETA would like to offer to pay to hang a banner that reads, "God Loves All Creatures. Stop the Seal Slaughter," on the side of your church until it's sold.
Global leaders as diverse as Barack Obama, Vladimir Putin, and His Holiness The Dalai Lama have taken a stand against the slaughter, and the European Union recently voted to ban seal fur. We'd like to boost our campaign in Ottawa and send the message to the Canadian government that it's time to put a stop to this disgraceful massacre once and for all.
Please contact me at your earliest convenience to discuss rates. Thank you for your time and consideration.
Sincerely,Dan Mathews Senior Vice President
Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
