In my state you get a card and buy what you want with it. Minnesota has a similar program called SNAP.

This seems to be about providing halal (kosher) options at local food banks. It has little to do with welfare. They aren't demanding anything, and they don't want to change the existing options. They just want an added shelf for halal foods. They are citizens and have a right to lobby for their interests, just like the rest of us.

It's a very misleading article that is made more clear if you take the time to watch the video it references.


Yeah they just want their Halal foods, where animals are slaughtered stone-aged style. Why would anyone be against this? Those poor people just want their Halal foods

I don't see what's wrong. Religion is a big part of people's lives. Saying they can't partake because they're impoverished seems harsh. People seem to harp on Sharia law, but I don't see how this "directly" affects people other than 150k. It's not like gays are being stoned in the open street here.


Seconded.

Most are completely fine, follow strict health regulations, and animals are comforted and feel no pain. I won't support stone age methods in a civilized country.

I've always wondered why animal right activists are usually so fat... they sure didn't get that fat by eating only tofu and sprouts.

Lol of course not, PETA are biased and dramatic anyway. They're the same ones who claimed cat girls in anime could be a gateway to abusing animals in real life or some shit.

Animals regardless how we see it, suffer less with a slit. It may look horrific and barbaric, but I have seen the 2 extreme opposite types of abattoirs, believe me, the face on the dying animal is as sad, bad and ugly as the other method. Also it's much more healthier and clean to drain the blood from the animal the halal or kosher way. The bolt or electric is a shock, causes major adrenaline rush, and causes blood clots, because the brain doesn't know what's happening, and the heart doesn't know how to beat any more and the blood doesn't pump around the veins properly, so a lot more blood in the veins will be trapped compared to halal and kosher. It's better the animal knows its dying as part of eating a cleaner and healthier meat.

And finally- it's the price you pay for the life you chose. So if you want meat to eat, there will never really be any humane way to eat it. It's got the price of being an inhumane type of food. For God's sake if you are so offended by it, then turn to being a vegetarian.

Article on Islamic slaughtering techniques: http://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2014/may/08/what-does-halal-method-animal-slaughter-involve

Slaughtering animals is never pretty. The halal regulations are meant to provide a standard to ensure that animals are slaughtered humanely and then safely processed. This is how standards and best practices were enforced historically. I agree it's an outdated standard and I don't like tradition being enforced so rigidly, but it's their right to believe what they want.

It's no more cruel than some of our own methods, which have been criticized as well.
