Quote# 74617

In Houston, these MARKETs sells meat that was butchered according to their tradition, part of which is shouting the battle cry. The thing is shouted at the slaughterhouse. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halal

Islam is becoming more and more prevalent in our society; sadly there are some things we can't fight. They are allowed to have their grocery stores anywhere they want. The women are allowed to wear the "getup" when I'm out shopping. I dislike seeing a big sign saying "Halal Meats" knowing what that means, and seeing these places very busy makes me even more nauseous. They have a perfect right to have their religion.

...

I can say that, I am proud to say I have been persecuted for evangelism, shot in the leg with a BB gun, and 2 attempted robberies just last year. I have been screamed at, hated on, and thrown off 2 buses because I offered the driver a Bible. Just in the last year. But I don't think everyone is out to get me and label me a hater as a result.

Wonder if you have a problem with kosher hot dogs or pickles?

My Kosher cognitive dissonance is also Halal, so what?

I have been persecuted for evangelism

You have no fucking clue what persecution is.

shot in the leg with a BB gun

LMFAO!

2 attempted robberies just last year

Oh noes! Not attempted robberies! Anything but that!

I have been screamed at, hated on, and thrown off 2 buses because I offered the driver a Bible

Again, LMFAO!

Perhaps they dislike having to go to specialty stores for meat? Actually, it isn't even them. Shops don't sell things just because of political correctness. It has to turn a profit. The owners/higher-ups honestly want to sell halal meats to whoever will buy them. If it works, then it's their business.

It's like complaining that somewhere sells fatty German sausages when you hate fat. You're not buying it, so you shouldn't care. "They have a perfect right to have their religion" isn't sounding very sincere.

Tell you what. When you're ready to put on your big girl panties and realize that you're not being persecuted, that orthodox Muslims need halal meats just like orthodox Jews need Kosher ones, and that in order to get business, these markets need to advertise the fact that they're selling halal fodods to get the Muslim business they're after, then you can come out and join the real world. Kay?

The existance of people with differring is no persecution. If what happened to you was real, we'd hear it on Fox.

Serious warblgarbl. I literally cannot make heads or tails of this massive word salad.

thrown off 2 buses because I offered the driver a Bible.

I bet. Jamming a bible in the driver's face whilst driving, maybe, and a repeat offender. Thrown under some buses would be better.

I have been ... shot in the leg with a BB gun,

Hahaha, take a hint, asshole, people are shooting at you. Straighten up your act. Big bore is out there.

I'm reminded of history class when we learned about the influx of immigrants in the early twentieth century. And even the Hispanic immigrants. People already living in the country started freaking out that the immigrants were taking over the country. Just chill. I bet their meats taste like yours.

And I just read the wiki article. They don't eat meat from abused animals? I like it!

You want the right to walk around shoving your religion in any face you can reach but selling some special meat is unacceptable?

Why are you even bothering with the layers of bullshit? Just flat out state it. "I want another crusade". "kill everyone I don't immediately agree with". "all heil the master race".

Really. Who the fuck do you think your fooling?

Well you're wrong. Everyone is out to get you and label you a hater.

Try again dickhead, i'm not seeing the part in your link where they shout while butchering meat.

I wish RR nutters would lock themselves in their homes already since they're so scared of everything. Hell, whatever happened to "Obama's gonna lock us christians up" bullshit that you guys used to rattle everyone into a psycho rant?

Sounds phony to me, but in any case when are these dickwads ever going to get the message that not everyone on earth has, does, will, or needs to buy into their own particular worldview?

Yeah, I know. Never.

They have a perfect right to have their religion.

You're right, they do. Well done! You'll also find that store owners have a perfect right to cater to the needs of that religion by supplying halal meats.

Sadly, you're not right about other stuff. You haven't been persecuted for your evangelism, you have been forcefully requested to fuck off. There's a distinct difference. And in fact you are a hater, as evidenced by your first two paragraphs. Many sane people will think of you as such.

They are allowed to have their grocery stores anywhere they want.

Supply and demand, bitch - after all, you're a good American conservative who has blind faith in the invisible hand of the market to do what is good and right, right?

I have been screamed at, hated on, and thrown off 2 buses because I offered the driver a Bible.

If I were the driver of a crowded public vehicle and you tried to distract me from safely operating it with religious babble, I would throw you off too. And I'd have to resist the urge to then reverse over you.

"They are allowed to have their grocery stores anywhere they want."

So I guess you could call them... free markets?

I love how shiny that mirror is.

"Wahh! People don't like my preaching, so I'm being persecuted!"

And yet "Damn Muslims can't have a shop for their meats, IMO."

"I have been screamed at, hated on, and thrown off 2 buses because I offered the driver a Bible. Just in the last year. But I don't think everyone is out to get me and label me a hater as a result."

If you get "hated on" because you try to give Bibles to people, it is persecution against Christians. But if someone tried to give you a Koran, that's cultural invasion and they should keep their religion for themselves. Amirite ?

We have several Middle Eastern/Halal food shops here in Kansas City too, including one at City Market that has a spice display similar to one you see in pictures of markets in that region. You walk past it and the aroma is heavenly. Oh, and the cuisine from that region is delicious and healthy.


Lighten up, open your mind, and quit playing the victim game. Yes, believe it or not, there are muslims in the world who just want to live their lives, and destroy everything and everyone in their path.

So, you are proud of being a prick in the public?

7/25/2010 3:05:13 AM



Halal markets will inevitably be followed by decent curry houses. So, win.

The thing to do, is to invoke your invisible God and let Him smite it out with their invisible God. If your invisible God wins, then you must have ceiling-chats more often. If their invisible God wins, then they'll probably decapitate you. Although, I'm sure that you're pretty confident that your God is damn quick on the smite.
