HALAL IN LOCAL SCHOOL … DONE DEAL?

Story a couple of days old now.  And it isn’t anything new either as the same had been reported a few years ago at other schools.

I don’t know enough about the subject to know what difference there is.  I think kosher meat is drained of blood as is halal.

Anyway ... the papers are still full of the Paris murders as you may imagine, so this kind of thing doesn’t get much mileage at the moment.
Not surprisingly.

The choice argument is kinda weak if you think about it in this case.  How many kids would know about the subject?
What youngster would be able to tell the difference?  And slaughter by islamic methods wouldn’t mean anything to kids, but it would to the parents. What I think is .... the parents are afraid of being called islamophobic and raaaaaacist.  So they bring the kiddies into it. 
Which shows ya where diversity, multi culture and pol. correctness have brought us.


Kids in ‘no choice’ row over halal meat at Bilborough school

By JonPritchard

Parents say they are “furious” after claiming a school has given their children no choice over whether they eat halal meat or not.
A letter sent out by Portland Primary Academy in Bilborough advised parents of a change of school meals, which included a note that all meat was halal.

The school says only chicken meat will be halal – the term for a method of slaughtering animals in line with Islamic law.
But parents said the children should be allowed a choice over whether to eat they want to eat this type of meat or not and objected to the method.
Jenni Tyas, of Bilborough, sends two of her four children, aged eight and 11, to the school. “It’s disgusting,” she said.

“There should be a choice and we should have been consulted over it in the first place.
“When I saw what it said on the letter, I sat down and explained to my children what halal meat was, and how the animal was killed, and they said they didn’t want to eat it any more.

“We pay for our school meals so we should have a choice.
‘’I’ve been having to send them in with packed lunches, but they want a warm dinner during the winter.

“A lot of other parents have been down to the school to speak about it,” she added.
Landlady Sonia Sheppard sends her 10-year-old son Elliot to the school.
She said: “It’s not about religion, it’s about choice.

“Everyone should be able to have a choice of what they want to eat no matter what religion they are. We are a big family of animal lovers.
“We’re not vegetarian but we don’t agree with the way the animals are killed to make halal meat.”

A statement was issued by the school after it was contacted by the Post.
It said: “Due to a change in our supplier’s arrangements, our supplier has confirmed from Monday that all chicken meat will be halal, all other meat is not halal.
“Any changes advised by the supplier will be communicated to the community through our website.”

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
