Holy meat

Post by Feardorcha » Wed Jun 29, 2011 10:10 am

Good news from the Nederlands today:
"Dutch MPs effectively ban ritual slaughter of animals."

The Jewish-Muslim lobby has a year to prove that cutting the throats of conscious animals - as their god dictates - is not cruel.

I think they have a hard time proving it, but indeed that would be interesting. How woould you proof a subjective term as cruell?
Pope says atheists pick & choose their morals. Correct. Today I will be frowning on child abuse & not having a problem with homosexuality.

They'll probably fall back on the usual: it's not cruel because god says so.

...or when they fail to prove that the animal doesn't suffer they will have to acknowledge that their indifference to suffering is morally corrupt and belongs in in the past.

It could be the religious equivalent of getting Al Capone for tax evasion. :D
