Skip to comments.Happy Halal Thanksgiving (Boycott Butterball)
Posted on 11/21/2011 6:47:27 PM PST by Mount Athos
Did you know that the turkey you're going to enjoy on Thanksgiving Day this Thursday is probably halal? If it's a Butterball turkey, then it certainly is.
I discovered that only two plants in the U.S. that perform halal slaughter keep the halal meat separated from the non-halal meat. At other meat-packing plants, animals are slaughtered following halal requirements, but then only a small bit of the meat is actually labeled halal.
Wendy Howze, a Butterball Consumer Response Representative, responded: "Our whole turkeys are certified halal."
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 it on religious grounds.
Others object because of the cruelty to animals that halal slaughter necessitates.
Still others refuse to do so on principle: why should we be forced to conform to Islamic norms? It's Islamic supremacism on the march, yet again.
Non-Muslims in America and Europe don't deserve to have halal turkey forced upon them in this way, without their knowledge or consent.
The same Islamic law that mandates that animals be cruelly slaughtered according to halal requirements also teaches hatred of and warfare against unbelievers, the oppression of women, the extinguishing of free speech, and much more that is inimical to our freedom. Don't support it on this celebration of freedom. Join our Facebook group, 'Boycott Butterball'.
Don't buy a Butterball turkey for Thanksgiving.

Reach in the big hole in back to check for the bomb.
That’s where you’ll find the giblets!
Oh, you didn’t know that?
Bet you were surprised when that white package didn’t go off after being in the oven at high heat all that time.
***So another words, you are an activist because you believe in Allah. I dont give a dang what they scream.***
Is this a reference to me? or the person who wrote the article. I’m showing that if someone gives you some food you eat it. If they give you food and say it was sacrificed to any false god YOU DON’T EAT IT!
I don’t understand your post. Please explain?
Sorry. I meant that we all are LUCKY to be able to buy or not buy what we want.
Yes. Thank God.
Magic doesn’t work nor does it exist.
I absolutely agree with you. My soul is not in jeopardy. I just don’t want my dollars supporting this crap.
Oh, you didnt know that?
Bet you were surprised when that white package didnt go off after being in the oven at high heat all that time.
Yeah, I've cooked a few birds, but none "blessed" by murderers.
A little sausage stuffing should fix that halal crap
Our wood molding plant produces tons of wood shavings. The nearby Hutterite communities use them as bedding for their free range chickens and turkeys. They get the shavings, we get the chickens and turkeys.
The barter system works well for us and our employees.
Their poultry is the best I’ve ever had.
No Butterballs for me.
Isn’t that the same Mohammedan chant used when they behead Infidels?
My point is a company should not be penalized simply for providing a product that is acceptable to some number of the population of this country.
The turkey must be faced towards Mecca and a prayer said when it is killed.
I believe you skipped over a relevant part.
27If some unbeliever invites you to a meal and you want to go, eat whatever is put before you without raising questions of conscience. 28But if anyone says to you, This has been offered in sacrifice, then do not eat it, both for the sake of the man who told you and for conscience saked
I believe what you quoted was KJV. NIV and others say do not eat it.
That question came up last night on FR. Every Islamic source I can find, and I looked onto Halal certification websites, say that a prayer to Allah must be said for it to be Halal.
Perfect addition to this thread.
Halal and Kosher are not equivalent. Halal requires that the slaughtered animal be made to face Mecca and prayer to Allah be said.
That’s not what the passage teaches. You clipped two verses out of context:
10:23 Everything is lawful, but not everything is beneficial. Everything is lawful, but not everything builds others up.
10:24 Do not seek your own good, but the good of the other person.
10:25 Eat anything that is sold in the marketplace without questions of conscience, 10:26 for the earth and its abundance are the Lords.
10:27 If an unbeliever invites you to dinner and you want to go, eat whatever is served without asking questions of conscience.
10:28 But if someone says to you, This is from a sacrifice, do not eat, because of the one who told you and because of conscience
10:29 I do not mean yours but the other persons. For why is my freedom being judged by anothers conscience?
10:30 If I partake with thankfulness, why am I blamed for the food that I give thanks for?
10:31 So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do everything for the glory of God.
10:32 Do not give offense to Jews or Greeks or to the church of God, 10:33 just as I also try to please everyone in all things. I do not seek my own benefit, but the benefit of many, so that they may be saved.”
What is the purpose of refraining from eating meat offered to idols *if* an *unbeliever* brings it to your attention? That the unbeliever will repent and become a believer.
My understanding is that it is permissible to have a continuous loop playing while the animals are slaughtered in accordance with Islamic rules.
