Brigitte Bardot Asked the Pope to Go Vegan for the Animals

French icon Brigitte Bardot wants Pope Francis to do more for animals and she asked him to go vegan to show respect for them.

The Million Dollar Vegan campaign, which launched last month, targeted Pope Francis and asked him to give up meat for the 40-day Lent period. The hope was that he would also encourage Catholics worldwide to do the same. If the Pope would have made the pledge, the campaign would have donated $1 million to a charity of the Pope’s choice.

Bardot is a life-long Catholic and says the Pope’s continued meat-eating is unacceptable:

“I am Catholic but I protest against the decisions of Pope Francis who chose this name in homage to St. Francis of Assisi and did nothing and do nothing to improve the condition of animals.His last decision to allow Catholics to feed on animal flesh during the 40 days of Lent is aberrant. I support the association Million Dollar Vegan which revolts against this papal cruelty and respecting religious advice, invites believers to do a vegan Lent.”
