    New blog post is here!

    “The question has come up about halal meats. What is it and is it humane? The word halal means food that is permissible according to Islam law. Like kosher meat in which Jews eat, Muslims eat halal meat only. According to Muslims, this way of killing an animal is supposed to be respectful and gives thanks back to them. But one can’t help but ask how? How is killing an animal showing it respect?”

    Hey @tzofla2,

    Cutting through someone’s skin, flesh, and bone in order to get to a nerve is extremely painful and traumatic. Cutting the nerve is actually the most painful part since it has the most sensitivity.

    They are raised in the same factory farms as the other animals which makes it cruel and unfair but the atcual slaughter is painless because the nerve that feels pain is cut.

    Halal means “in God’s name”. The animals are slaughtered by having their throats slit. Its considered to be ‘respectful’ because is it prayed over and aligned with Mecca.

    Read about kosher meats in eating animals. It talks about a scadal where the animals for “kosher” meats where being treated horrificly (however most of the Islamic community had no idea and were shocked and outraged at this). The point is, just because it is claimed kosher does not mean the living conditions are that much better.

    Putting all this aside, I don’t simply not eat meat b/c of the abuse is the industry but b/c meat is unnecesary, and unneccesary killing is murder.
