When you bite into a delicious pizza, succulent sandwich or luscious lamb chops, are you possibly eating food that has been sacrificed to idols?
An outspoken American pastor says yes, and he's sounding the alarm for Christians to be aware of the Islamic influence he calls "backdoor Shariah" now nibbling its way across the fruited plain.
At issue, says Mark Biltz of El Shaddai Ministries in Bonney Lake, Wash., is eating food that's "halal," in other words "lawful" or "permitted" for the Muslim diet.
Muslims join many Jews and some Christians in avoiding the consumption of certain animals such as pigs and birds of prey, but those of the Islamic faith also have their meat blessed in the name of their god, Allah.
"From the Christian standpoint, Allah would be an idol," Biltz told WND.
In a sermon last weekend which he posted online, Biltz explained, "In order for it to be halal, they have to slaughter the animal facing Mecca ... and they have to say this prayer about Allah is great and greater than all other gods. Muslims can only eat food that is halal, that has been sacrificed to their idol, Allah ... and with Allah's name prayed over it."
"You could be eating beef, chicken, etc., offered up to Allah and not even know it. I can just imagine at a Passover Seder the caterer unbeknownst to anyone is serving halal meat! It could be on your pizza without you knowing it, or at your favorite restaurant. People don't realize they could be eating meat sacrificed to idols!"

Eat more pork!
That’s not kosher.

Oh my, is there no place to hide? I was thinking of moving to northern Idaho or northern Washington...
And shrimp, and catfish....
I kill, gut, skin, and butcher my own.
No worries here.
Mat 15:11 What goes into a man’s mouth does not make him ‘unclean,’ but what comes out of his mouth, that is what makes him ‘unclean.’ “
And now, for #11: Takes WND Seriously.
Stupid, stupid article. World Net Daily has become World Nut Daily.
“You could be eating beef, chicken, etc., offered up to Allah and not even know it”
LoL. Oh, good gravy. Yeah, that’s a real worry of mine. Lol.
Pass me my bag of pork rinds ...

Well said, Danny. My faith trumps any silly mumbo-jumbo incantations. You can only pry my delicious lamb stew from my cold dead hands. Grace said at the table knocks out any spiritual impurities! :-)
Christians, I think you need to be less fearful and more confident in the Lord your God.
I personally don't really care whether it's halal or not, because I don't recognize their "god." There is only one God, and "allah" ain't it. So IMO they can face Mecca when they slaughter the animal, or they can face Dubuque, IA. Doesn't mean anything to me. I'm sure we have atheists, wiccans, buddhists, etc. also processing food products. I don't care if they chant druid prayers or bark at the moon, so long as what I'm buying isn't tainted.
And if I want pork products in my food, that's what I'll buy.
Oh good grief
Pass me my bag of pork rinds ...
Yumm. I wonder if you were eating those at work and a Muslim worked in your office if he/she could complain because the dusting could get into their burka and maybe into their mouth. Something to ponder is this day of wackiness.
It’s questionable that unknowingly eating meat that’s been gone over with some hand waving and some Moobah Floobah, Shooba Dooba! incantation is going to have spiritual ramifications.
Of course just eat pork and solve all your problems.
