UK: Church of England concerns over Halal

| 14/02/2011 | 3 Replies

By Jonathan Petre –

The Church of England has told its schools to ensure they are serving non-halal food after concerns that a number are only providing meat slaughtered according to Islamic law.

The official guidance was issued after Church members complained that the use of halal meat was effectively ‘spreading sharia law’ across Britain.

The Church’s financial arm has also come under pressure to withdraw its investments – worth millions of pounds – in supermarkets that do not clearly label halal food.

    It is interesting to see that the Church of England does not want people to eat meat that has had God’s name mentioned over it.

    Is it possible that after 1400 hundred years, the C of E still does not know that the Muslims, Christians and Jews all worship the same God?

    Does it really matter!

    80% of Meat labelled as Halal is not Halal anyway!

    When it comes to food & Meat supplies, Halal is just another way of adding a premium price to your product and selling more product!

    Just ask all the companies who use mechanical slaughtering of chickens and using electrical currents to kill the sheep and claim their product is Halal!
