I don't see how halal is any better than the standard way of killing animals.

In many ways it's worse.

I appreciate your opinion :thumbsup: but I wasn't intending to start a debate - just thought I would let people know who are interested.

The chickens are still stunned before slaughter, which I know is what some people are concerned about with Halal meat

Proof?

As long as both options are available, I'll choose non-halal.

It's NOT pain free and we shouldn't have to get this forced down our throats, literally.

Should be banned IMO. :x

I agree completely. Killing animals this way is cruelty beyond belief. This shouldnt be allowed in this day and age. It dosent have to be this way.

The government wouldn't have the guts to ban it for fear of losing the vote of certain minorities, it's pathetic. :x

Oh, surprise.... YOU agree with it.

I, therefore must be a racist.

Only explanation, eh? :roll:

I'd prefer my food not to die in terrible agony, thanks.

Either way the chickens dead. Only good bit in a KFC is the coating anyway :lol:

Didn't stop them banning fox hunting, though. I am not sure it is as simple as that.

There's alot more worse things that happen to the chicken before it is killed mate.

also check out how fur jackets are made.

if you dont agree with halal meat turn vegan, otherwise its a bit hypocritical.

The method is less humane than the one we already use, so why make it worse?

It's like going back in time.

Hardly hypocritical. I know they have to die, but it should be as painless as possible.

And no, I don't wear fur :?

I'm not sure why people are taking the moral highground on this, the chicken is dead within 2 minutes of slaughter and it is stunned. It's about time KFC introduced this, they are missing out on a lot of custom in areas with high muslim populations, not just from muslims but also from people who like to eat with muslim friends.

Exactly, demographically a tiny, TINY minority.

good news. At least is a start

Personally I care about both, do you think that caring for both is not possible? I mean should we not bother with caring for our food because we are at war somewhere else? I don't think that they are mutually exclusive. I mean over a million people marched against our killing of people, I doubt you would see a million march for a chicken.

Well why bother using a method at all?

Why not just start carving it whilst it's alive - it's going to be dead anyway :roll:

This isn't a muslim country, I don't want their beliefs (or any other religions) forced on me.

typical British?? me thinks many other countries kill just as much and some kill more of their own than others so bit harsh a statement there mate

being a bit rude there

Also you might want to read this quote from the KFC website before you start voting with your feet:

"For our chicken to be halal accredited, a blessing is read by an appropriate person at the point of slaughter - nothing else changes"

Not a bloodbath in sight.

No, not at all, they are the most influential section in society by a long way. Your argument is not particularly valid, it is clear that the government does often do things that the majority want, even if it upsets the minority.

You are not being forced to eat Halal meat, are you? Why does religion mean anything to you, you're not being forced to be anything. The sooner we separate state and religion from our traditionally Christian set up, the better.

the chicken is stunned, it don't know **** after that.

so i take it you were a butcher and a part time scientist and volunteer as a chicken whisperer on the weekends so you know exactly how much pain each animal endured with both ways of producing meat or are you going by the "stats" in today's news of the world?

There are plenty of muslims living in this country so I would think KFC as a business are allowed to increase their customer base by allowing muslims to eat at their restaurants without breaking a fundamental part of their religion....

yeah they do kill in other countries, but then they also dont care about killing chickens.

The point is the Hypocrisy.

Why are you bringing skin colour into this, Halal eaters can be whatever colour they want to be, well infact, whatever colour they were born as.
