“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?”
Yeah that’s crap. Okay, if it’s a religious thing and somehow that makes killing “okay”, sure they can eat it. That’s not my problem. But from a vegan perspective; is it okay to kill and eat the meat? Hell no! The definition of vegan is to not eat anything that has a heart or a biproduct of a being that has a heart! So I think nothing would make killing = showing respect (because if a person kills another person, that’s nothing like respecting, right?), but if they want to, go ahead.
