The Fur Commission. I cannot say what I think of them, for I am certainly not prepared to use asterisks in order to explain what pieces of low down scum they are.



They have a colouring book for children. You can find it on the first page of their website (furcommission.com). If you scroll down this revolting page, you will find a page where the children are to help the mink find his "home".



I don't believe in god. Therefore I do not believe in the devil either.



But I am prepared to rethink my beliefs about the devil when I see this colouring book.



I hope they all rot in hell (which I hope exists for people of their sort) forever and ever. Amen.

"Farmed fur is a natural fiber and an environment-friendly resource. By feeding their domesticated carnivores the "leftovers" from human food production (beef, fish, dairy, poultry), fur farmers reduce the environmental impact of the agricultural sector as a whole. And when your fur jacket comes to the end of its long life, it's biodegradable too."







i hate people. so much. thats one of the stupidest/meanest paragraphs i have ever read.

Oh, if only I could.



I like all animals. Even human animals. But I swear to the god I do not believe in, if any of these people were lying in the street bleeding to death and asked me to help, I would spit on their faces and walk on.

i understand your frustration. and i agree with the spitting in the face. not only do these people not have respect for life, or compassion for life, but the exploitation of these animals, and the "anti animal rights". i hate ignorant people.

this is horrible. I read through the first coloring book, and they make it sound like cows "give" us hamburger and milk like they are happy to do it. same for the other animals. nowhere is it implied that the animals are killed. no wonder little kids often don't realize that meat and dead animals are the same thing.

These people are not ignorant, evan_fabiani. They are interested only in lucre. Making money whatever they make it from. I would think they would trade in human babies too if it were not illegal.



They are absolutely without any morals or ethics. They are scumbags.

So far we have some nice summing up. If we put it all together, we have messed up sick crap from scumbags, with a few expressive smilies to go with it.



When we've done some more summing up, I suggest we use our summing up to write a poem which we can send to them courtesy of activists all over the world.

That is so insanely sad. Indoctrinate them while they're young, eh? I found the part about the mink going to "rest awhile in the sun" especially ironic.



And...did anyone notice at the end of the coloring book, it invites you to come and visit a fur farm? Really? I may have to take them up on that offer.

One would not be allowed on most US fur farms, so I'm surprised that mostly empty "offer" was made.



Jen, I understand that fur farms were banned in England on grounds of "public morality."

That was the most repulsive thing I have ever read in my entire life. How do they go about saying that giving animals food, and keeping them in cages is fair trade for the animal's lives?

I was discussing this yesterday with a friend. We decided it is even more repulsive than the racoon video.



"Repulsive" will be added to the poem I will write for these sickos.

Just thought I would post this. It's not fully related, and i'm not sure of my point with it, but I still think it fits with this.

"Write down the revelation

and make it plain on tablets

so that a herald [b] may run with it.



3 For the revelation awaits an appointed time;

it speaks of the end

and will not prove false.

Though it linger, wait for it;

it [c] will certainly come and will not delay.



4 "See, he is puffed up;

his desires are not upright

but the righteous will live by his faith [d] -



5 indeed, wine betrays him;

he is arrogant and never at rest.

Because he is as greedy as the grave [e]

and like death is never satisfied,

he gathers to himself all the nations

and takes captive all the peoples.



6 "Will not all of them taunt him with ridicule and scorn, saying,

" 'Woe to him who piles up stolen goods

and makes himself wealthy by extortion!

How long must this go on?'



7 Will not your debtors [f] suddenly arise?

Will they not wake up and make you tremble?

Then you will become their victim.



8 Because you have plundered many nations,

the peoples who are left will plunder you.

For you have shed man's blood;

you have destroyed lands and cities and everyone in them.



9 "Woe to him who builds his realm by unjust gain

to set his nest on high,

to escape the clutches of ruin!



10 You have plotted the ruin of many peoples,

shaming your own house and forfeiting your life.



11 The stones of the wall will cry out,

and the beams of the woodwork will echo it.



12 "Woe to him who builds a city with bloodshed

and establishes a town by crime!



13 Has not the LORD Almighty determined

that the people's labor is only fuel for the fire,

that the nations exhaust themselves for nothing?



14 For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD,

as the waters cover the sea.



15 "Woe to him who gives drink to his neighbors,

pouring it from the wineskin till they are drunk,

so that he can gaze on their naked bodies.



16 You will be filled with shame instead of glory.

Now it is your turn! Drink and be exposed [g] !

The cup from the LORD's right hand is coming around to you,

and disgrace will cover your glory.



17 The violence you have done to Lebanon will overwhelm you,


and your destruction of animals will terrify you.

For you have shed man's blood;

you have destroyed lands and cities and everyone in them.



18 "Of what value is an idol, since a man has carved it?

Or an image that teaches lies?

For he who makes it trusts in his own creation;

he makes idols that cannot speak.



19 Woe to him who says to wood, 'Come to life!'

Or to lifeless stone, 'Wake up!'

Can it give guidance?

It is covered with gold and silver;

there is no breath in it.



20 But the LORD is in his holy temple;

let all the earth be silent before him."


emphasis mine





In the middle of these woes in this prophecy about some of the many evil acts of humanity - between getting people drunk to seduce them, being violent, and shedding human blood, it lists the destruction of animals.

Yeah when it comes to scum, the Fur commission people probably rank there alongside Richard Berman & others from CCF.



I'd like to see the coloring book but I'm not going to because I think it would increase the site's visitor count.



The Fur commission was also responsible for that ****ing stupid video clip in which a man talked to some fur lady in the supermarket and criticized fur because of what it does to the "dumb animals". Of course, at the end of the lady's brilliant arguments (like that those anti-fur people want you to be vegan and veganism is horrible), the man changed his opinion.

"and I stand

upon a mountain

made of weak and useless men"

I thought dairy inustry propaganda was bad. But this reaches a new low.

From the coloring book:

Quote:
Farmers take good care of their animals. In exchange animals provide food and clothing. This way, people and animals help each other.

My parents have raised me and taken good care of me since I was born. But according to the Fur Commission's logic my parents should butcher me and eat me when I turn eighteen.



They are so getting hate mail from me.
