They talk all the time about animal sacrifice n shit, and they got in a huge shitstorm in Canada awhile back for killing pigeons for a show, they had previously attempted to acquire a homeless guys dog but that fell through.
THAT SAID. Actually, being a vegetarian and generally valuing animals more than the average person, I don't agree with any of it, but it is better than dog fighting. It's bullshit to kill something for your stupid concert, but saying that's on par with torturing animals for sport just doesn't work.
Right. The stuff about killing pigeons and trying to get the homeless dog to kill, that's straight from the singer's mouth. I also read that they've done things like back a cat into a corner and beat it to death.
I mentioned dogfighting to make a point about how simplistic the "if you don't like it don't go" comment is, not to establish a precise equivalent. But really, if we're splitting hairs about which kind of killing and mutilating animals is okay... isn't that sorta not okay?
Look. If you're not convinced, you're not convinced. People get behind a lot of shit that doesn't make any sense to me.
