Halal, in contrast, is pagan, and sacrificed to a demon.

Really? (sigh)

So I went and read Halal Guidelines for Food Preparation and nowhere in the text did I see anything about sacrificing the meat to demons. In one document I did see the requirement for the slaughterer to utter "Bismillah" while performing the slaughtering, but that requirement is absent in this document.

Quite frankly I don't see much difference in Halal foods and the freakishly anal-retentive regulations issued out and enforced by the USDA and FDA.

If you are self-classified as "weaker brother" and find your soul in mortal danger, then I would advice against Halal and Kosher foods and eat pigs, dogs, rats, eagles, bears, tigers and other non-demonic foods - Just to make sure that God still approves of you.

From the right-wing pastor:
"At a restaurant, you're not going to know [if the food is halal] unless you ask,"
Hmmm, and what did Paul tell us?
25 Eat whatever is sold in the meat market, asking no questions for conscience' sake; 26 for "the earth is the Lord's, and all its fullness." (1 Cor. 10)
The point is, you shouldn’t really care, even if it were “sacrificed to idols” (which it’s not).

Why are Christians so dumb?

Yes. allah is a false god. Or do you also deny the crucification? The fundamental core of halal slaughter is facing Mecca, praying to this false god, and sliting the throat of the animal.

“If you are self-classified as “weaker brother” and find your soul in mortal dange”

No, merely one who can read.

I don’t avoid halal for myself, but do so for the weaker brother -— the weaker brother being the “all roads lead to heaven” brother who might be persuaded that islam is acceptable by not my rejecting its practices.
