PETA doesn't like live nativity scene

PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) recently targeted a Methodist Church in Alaska, accusing the church of being cruel to animals by exposing them to the Alaska cold in their live nativity scene.
The only problem is that the church only has live people, not live animals. I guess PETA didn't bother to check their facts. Or maybe they don't care if people get cold, just as long as animals don't suffer.
Herein is where PETA misses the whole point of Christmas. God created everything, including the animals, and we should care for them. But people are God's highest creation, made in His image. Christ didn't come at Christmas to save animals, He came to save people.

I am capable of only one response to that: Oh dear christ! Which is strange, but the frustration and awe of hearing such stupidity must be expressed somehow.

I'm all for protecting animals who are innocent and in many cases can't protect themselves (not to mention easy targets for humans who are such lice as to need something to degrade), but that's just absurd.
