In a recent article in the American Thinker by Pamela Geller we discover that much of the meat we eat is raised and killed and packaged for our consumption, and certified as being Halal (Denoting or relating to meat prepared as prescribed by Muslim law).
Halal slaughter involves cutting the trachea, the esophagus, and the jugular vein, and letting the blood drain out while saying “Bismillah allahu akbar” — in the name of Allah the greatest. Many people refuse to eat Halal prepared food on religious grounds. Many Christians, Hindus or Sikhs and Jews find it offensive to eat meat slaughtered according to Islamic ritual (although observant Jews are less likely to be exposed to such meat, because they eat kosher prepared food).
As a Christian I am not fearful about eating meat that was blessed by a Muslim cleric to their god, because when they bless meat to their god it in reality is blessing the wind since there is only one true and living God. Therefore their god does not exist, so in reality they are blessing the meat with useless words. But what does offend me is that American companies are allowing Muslims, which by their faith, according to their holy book the Koran, says that we are infidels and must die, and would allow them to spread their religion of hate within the walls of their corporation.
Need proof of these claims? Here is more information from Pamela Geller in an article found at the AmericanThinker.com:
A citizen activist and reader of my website AtlasShrugs.com wrote to Butterball, one of the most popular producers of Thanksgiving turkeys in the United States, asking them if their turkeys were halal. Wendy Howze, a Butterball Consumer Response Representative, responded: “Our whole turkeys are certified halal.
Now it is my opinion that if Butterball wants to support one religious group they should also support other Religious groups. I want to see a pastor employed by Butterball that is allowed to pray and bless the meat after it is killed. I want to have a pastor there to pray to the one and only living God for giving us all the blessings we have. After all, if God did not love us so much we would not have meat to eat.
I will be contacting Butterball today and demanding that they stop allowing the Muslims to pray to the wind or allow other religions in to pray to the living God. You can contact Stephanie Styons at Butterball Corporate firstname.lastname@example.org and here is a list of their plant locations.
