The Italian Association for the Defence of Animals and the Environment (AIDAA) has launched an Internet petition to demand that the Pope stop wearing fur, such as the ermine-trimmed cape he wears in the winter. Lorenzo Croce, chairman of the AIDAA, says, “We just want to ask him in a message of love and peace to give a strong signal towards the protection of animals and the environment through a small but very significant personal sacrifice.”

I remember back when Pope Benedict XVI was “the new pope” and I did a piece at YouthNoise on how he frowned upon animal cruelty. Surely wearing fur qualifies as cruelty?
