‘I Am Killing Him – All For The Pleasure It Brings Me’

This Easter, former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney has appeared in an online blitz wearing PETA’s new “Eat No Fish” t-shirt to urge fans to “make it a Good Friday for animals – try vegetarian.”

The holiday message has been spread across the web by PETA’s million-plus online activists since Thursday morning. Sir Paul’s Good Friday appeal references the holy day when many Christians traditionally replace meat from land animals with fish.

“Many years ago, I was fishing, and as I was reeling in the poor fish, I realized, ‘I am killing him – all for the passing pleasure it brings me’,” said Sir Paul, who was raised Catholic. “And something inside me clicked, I realized as I watched him fight for breath that his life was as important to him as mine is to me.”

The campaign comes on the heels of pro-vegetarian biblical messages in Darren Aronofsky’s worldwide number one smash film, Noah, in which the digital animals are protected from ravenous marauders.
