gee who really gives a shit how it's killed as long as it's humane?

I worked in a cafe and they bought halal meat so they didn't have to cook up 2 dishes of stuff... It's not really that hard to see why the supermarkets do it. Some people are strange indeed.

Umm, Halal killing isn't humane?

Well, it depends on your definition of "humane". A slaughter can be Halal while allowing the animal to be in more pain than a non-Halal slaughter certainly.

Taking this article to its logical extreme, shouldn't these bigots be campaigning to send priests into the middle east to secretly consecrate everyone's bread?
