Skip to comments.Surprise! America's favorite meal may be secretly dedicated to Allah
Posted on 11/22/2011 7:30:20 AM PST by Usagi_yo
As you sit down with your family on Thanksgiving and consider offering a prayer of gratitude, be aware the turkey at the center of the table may have already been "blessed" in the name of Allah.
Customer service representatives from Butterball, one of America's most popular Turkey brands, confirmed to WND that the company's whole turkeys are without being labeled as such slaughtered according to Islamic "halal" standards.
"Halal slaughter involves cutting the trachea, the esophagus and the jugular vein and letting the blood drain out while saying, 'Bismillah allahu akbar'

Honestly I don't care, just as long as they're not copulating with the dead carcass.
I used to like WND, but over the years it's gotten pretty absurd.
Joseph Farah still puts out a good op-ed now and then.
As Jesus said, it’s not what goes into a man’s mouth that defiles him, but what comes out of it. Meaning vile speech, rudeness, blasphemy, etc.
Sounds like a lot of words for each bird...wonder who actually says it or is it recorded or do they slit a bunch of throats and say it all at once....curious minds want to know.
Having spinach lasagne. No worries here.
They hate the West.
Why are they here ?
However, if you baste it with bacon grease that nixes the hex.
PETA will sound off on this any second now.
But I don’t want to eat it because God doesn’t want that for me, so though it wouldn’t defile my body, it is not for me. And it’s not absurd to know these types of things.
Unless the spinach came from Qatar.
But I’m just a poor boy and nobody loves me
He’s just a poor boy from a poor family
Spare him his life from this monstrosity
Easy come easy go - will you let me go
Bismillah! No - we will not let you go - let him go
Bismillah! We will not let you go - let him go
Bismillah! We will not let you go - let me go
Will not let you go - let me go (never)
Never let you go - let me go
Never let me go - ooo
No, no, no, no, no, no, no -
Oh mama mia, mama mia, mama mia let me go
Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me
So you think you can stone me and spit in my eye
So you think you can love me and leave me to die
Oh baby - can’t do this to me baby
Just gotta get out - just gotta get right outta here

Guess we won’t be buying a Gutterball turkey today.
“or do they slit a bunch of throats and say it all at once.”
This reminds me of a story about Benjamin Franklin as a young boy. They used to eat a lot of salt pork. Franklin, wanting to save time, asked if they could dispense with the blessing before each meal, and just say it once over the pork barrel.
I like your godlet there. My personal fave is Phwammmm, the All-Powerful God (from Marx [toys]!)
No worries...I bought Jennie-O. Besides, even if it we “pre-blessed” to Allah, the blessing I ask for from Almighty God trumps that demonic crapola any day!
So, they can take their “Allah FUBAR” turkeys and let ‘em rot for all I care.
It's like eating a sacrifice to Satan.
I'm not eating one. The darn things have been cursed.
Morning coffee has not kicked in...
In 1482 Arab moslems invented the condom by using the lower intestine of a goat.
In 1845 the English impoved the invention by removing the lower intestine from the goat itself before using it.
Or some such. This is about the lebenteenth time this particular thread has been posted.
Time for a new thread ~ maybe this one "Ham is NOT KOSHER"
I am waiting for some entrepreneur to invent halal bacon and ham.
It’s okay since we use pork in our stuffing and baste with part pork fat and part turkey fat I figure my pork cancels out the friggin mid east blessing. Pork Pork Prok
I think I will eat pork and think of dead bin laden and sadam Hussein, and all the other muhummadans killed or rounded up in the name of the US... and be thankful...
Joy to the World!
Swedish Chef...is that you?
I thought halal meant the imam farted on it.
They have a robot that says it. I saw it on How It’s Made. /s
I’m expecting my fresh Willie Bird today and it will be going into the brine.
I don’t know if Willie will be Halal, Kosher or whatever, but he will be delicious!
I wouldn’t have one of these oil injected, puffed up birds in my house.
It doesn’t change the flavor, so I don’t care if they offered it up to Satan (OK, they are doing that in a way).
If it sells more turkeys and keeps the costs low, it is fine by me!
1 Corinthians 8:4-9
4 So then, about eating food sacrificed to idols: We know that an idol is nothing at all in the world and that there is no God but one. 5 For even if there are so-called gods, whether in heaven or on earth (as indeed there are many “gods” and many “lords”), 6 yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live; and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live. 7 But not everyone knows this. Some people are still so accustomed to idols that when they eat such food they think of it as having been sacrificed to an idol, and since their conscience is weak, it is defiled. 8 But food does not bring us near to God; we are no worse if we do not eat, and no better if we do.
I know what the kosher approved symbol looks like on a meat or other food label. I'm not so sure what a halal symbol looks like.
Pennsylvania even goes a step further and and has an Amish label (the real kind). I go out of my way to buy Amish raised chicken because I know they raise and harvest chickens in a humane manner. The meat is actually darker and has a better flavor to go with the higher price.
I'm not sure how many other states use an Amish label, but I've heard that a few others with sizable Amish populations do since even non-Amish consumers like me recognize the superior quality.
We always get locally farmed birds from a small market.
I don’t even recall the brand name.
Could be Billy Joe Bob’s Turkey Buzzards for all I know.
There’s one ingredient on the package label:
I wrap my turkey with bacon, then about a half hour before pulling it out of the oven... I pour maple syrup all over it. Muslim proofed it.
I used to like WND, but over the years it’s gotten pretty absurd. - AGREED
I hated to laugh at that.
I think this dude named "Paul" had the same kind of situation happen in some place called "Corinth":

If you are so weak in your faith that eating a Butterball Turkey will cause you distress, then do not do so. But I will pray that you will move beyond this weakness.
Well good. Yesterday I had the choice to buy Butterball turkey. I chose the other brand. That will be my continuing choice: NOT Butterball
Does anyone beleive that even if this were true that Butteball would confirm this with WND that its true?
I don’t recognize their so-called “religion” anyway, so if the cultists want to bark at their moon god while prepping it up, I really don’t care, so long as they’re not putting anything in or on the turkey that shouldn’t be there.
Doesn’t make sense. How can Butterball have enough manpower to do this? It’s not as though the Catholic Mexican working on the line is qualified to recite an Islamic prayer.
My husband hunts. Allah the moon God doesn't stand a chance in our house.
I’m having Ham for thanksgiving. I really suspect that it is not dedicated to Allah.
