Halal butchery: incompatible with British animal welfare law.
We don’t have much time for lefties here at Boggart Blog, these emotionally crippled people whose raison d’ être is to seek the approval of their peers. Such people have little to offer to general debate as they jump on every bandwagon but have nothing original to say, propagate every meme and chant every mantra that briefly bursts out on those websites for the terminally shallow, Facebook and Twitter.
Being a leftie can be hard work however, with so many of the causes they must embrace being in direct opposition to other favoured causes, lefties encounter a lot of moral dilemmas.
So being a believer in all -isms, the kind of idiot who equates calls for immigration controls with South African Apartheid or Stalinist genocide and is quite sure that equality means members of favoured minorities should be given me the privileged status of an elite class, can get hairy at times. Take as an illustration a case reported in the Toronto Sun of a Muslim Barber who refused to give a lesbian a ‘businessman’s haircut’:
So a lesbian walks into a Muslim barbershop, and asks for a businessmens haircut.
It sounds like the beginning of a joke, but it really happened, and now a government agency called the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario will hear her complaint.
Faith McGregor is the lesbian who doesnt like the girly cuts that they do at a salon. She wants the boys hairdo.
Omar Mahrouk is the owner of the Terminal Barber Shop in Toronto. He follows Shariah law, so he thinks women have cooties. As Mahrouk and the other barbers there say, they dont believe in touching women other than their own wives.
That is an old story, my friend Renee who runs Liberty Unyielding has used it before to illustrate the pitfalls of politically correct thinking. And I have used similar stories to highlight the same thing.
Stories like the one about the lefties who started screaming racism when people objected to only halal meat being used in school dinners in a British council run school.
“Halal meat will not harm you children, you nasty racists,” the idiots chorused, doing their usual trick of jumping to crazy conclusions. Well no, it will not, and nobody was suggesting it would.
Some of the people who raised objections were quite reasonably protesting that the council had caved in to Muslim demands without condidering the feelings of Christians, Jews, Hindus and non religious secularists; others pointed out that many Secularists and Christians have moral objections to the methods used to kill; animals in halal and kosher abbatoirs. This involves the animal being conscious when its throat is cut and the still living carcass is hoisted up and left dangling head down as the creature bleeds to death.
Such killing is against the law in slaughterhouses owned and operated by people and organisations that cannot claim religious exemption. Literate commentators of course will tell you that such exemption have nothing to do with equality or democracy and everything to do with they liars and hypocrites of the left trying to divide our society, the better to create a one party Marxist state.
