"An animal-rights group wants an Indiana man accused of murdering his former girlfriend and eating part of her body to receive a vegan diet while he is in custody, saying it could help protect jail staff, a spokesman said on Monday.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals sent a letter last week to Clark County, Indiana, Acting Sheriff Brian Meyer, encouraging him to provide a diet free of animal products for Joseph Oberhansley."

I was wondering where to post this:

Leave it to PETA to come up with another obvious publicity stunt. Looks like it worked. I've got to give their advertising people credit for creativity.

I probably posted this before, but one of the funniest bumper stickers I ever saw read, "PETA- People Eating Tasty Animals."

Really? Really? That is how carnivores can't help spending their time?

PETA is absurd. From their habitat destroying new development homes, they lack the intelligence to comprehend that the quick humane killing of an animal for sustenance is natural, and that taking ones place in the foodchain excludes any and all cruelty.
Nobody cares more about the welfare of animals than anglers and hunters.
They view this as a paradox. It isn't.

I suspect they view that statement as false, not a paradox.

Aurelio Peccei, the head of the Soylent Green Club of Rome and a public advocate of cannibalism in the 1960s, cooked up the idea of a burger that tastes like human flesh to fit the bill.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Just wondering. How do they know what human flesh tastes like?

The rest of the article explains that there are accounts from various cannibals along the way. Read it for the full details.

Let me understand you here. So you are saying we take these cannibals word for what they say human flesh tastes like and we try and duplicate it? Is that about right? I mean, these are the people we believe of how human flesh tastes? Well if they say so I guess it must be true. Because they seem like a very reliable bunch. Smile Also if they say it tastes good who are we to doubt their word? they probably also say it gives a very good feeling to kill and torture someone so we should try and duplicate that feeling also. What the frack?

I agree. Eating the dead may sound disgusting, but the dead are dead.

It's the cultivation and killing--the farming, so to speak--of human meat that raises my eyebrows.

Regarding the OP, I have lots of thoughts. Is CGI kiddie porn OK because no real children are involved? Is consumption OK when production is harmless? Do our taboos reflect real ethical truths, or just cultural norms? Once we get the recipe down for human flesh, can we modify it for race, age, or religious belief? Would I prefer a "Young Muslim Red-Headed Boy Burger with Special Sauce"? Must every culinary taste be served?

Is any truth left whatsoever, or only values? And are values so relative and maleable that I we can twist and tweak them to suit our fancy?

I could go on all day will examples, but I won't.

don't forget the part where they find it enjoyable to kill sentient beings.
