The willful ignorance of the masses regarding the whole point of the seperation of Church and State is only one of several reasons this country is decaying.

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- An animal rights group is offering $1 million to any scientist who can create lab-grown meat that is commercially viable and indistinguishable in taste from the real thing.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) said the money would go to the first scientist who could create and market such a meat by the summer of 2012. The group said the scientist had to be able to produce the meat in large enough quantity so it could be sold in 10 U.S. states -- at a price competitive to the prevailing chicken price.
Further, the meat had to have "taste and texture indistinguishable from real chicken flesh to non-meat eaters and meat eaters alike."
A taste-test panel would determine if the lab-produced meat fitted the criteria.
If this becomes a reality ( which i doubt it won't be for at least another forty or fifty years ) won't it also signal the extinction of pigs and chickens. Since no would need to raise them anymore?
