Pope Benedict XVI: Stop Wearing Fur

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?
