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.
