In an interview to celebrate People For The Ethical Treatment Of Animals' (PETA) 25th anniversary, Sir Paul sang the praises of Pope Benedict XVI. Recently the Pope spoke out against the practice of factory farming and urged Roman Catholics to be compassionate towards animals. In response, Sir Paul told the interviewer:
"God bless him! I think it would be fantastic if someone in his position took a strong stance on that, because one of PETA's strongest points, and one of mine, is compassion. That certainly is a basic tenet of the Catholic religion. I think it would be terrific if he took a strong stance and urged people to come out against that kind of thing."
