They want to freely serve halal food.

I see little reason to call it a clownish demand especially considering they already do in KFCs in other countries, and it doesn't affect non-observers.

They already DEMAND it in other countries? Is it okay with KFC that they DEMAND it?

This one seems simple enough.

Eat what KFC sells.

Go somewhere else more to your liking

If what you like is served in other countries, then that's option 3.

Or if none of those suit your desires, start your own. Call it Muslim Fried Chicken. There are more Muslims than any other group. You may have a winner on your hands.

Sounds like they just want to be able to eat at KFC in New Zealand. Halal certified KFCs and other chains already exist in other countries.



No need for the phony outrage.
I am in COMPLETE agreement with Wally...

First, I don't know if it's just me gettin' old or what, but I'm starting to get REALLY sick and tired of a$$hole websites...Not just bias (that will always exist), but the websites that read on a second grade level and can't even get past two sentences without immature attacks...

..and on top of that, the article isn't even right!!!!!...

There was no DEMAND...It was a request...

There's no claim that there will be an attempt to shut KFC down...

If was denied NOT because they were "standing up to bullies", but because they tried it, once, and the trouble wasn't worth the effort (read Wally's REAL article)...

This is done on both sides (a lot of times by misinterpreting bills on the floor), and it's EQUALLY childish...

People read what they WANT to read, and, unfortunately, people read INTO what they want to read INTO...

From the Tips for Debate thread...

Quote:
You wanna lose credibility fast?...Use partisan websites as your source and you're off to a good start. TRY to keep to the reliable places the general public acknowledges as legitimate. One good way to find out if a website is bias is to go to the "About Us" section (if they have one) and see what their intentions are. There are some that are obvious (Rush Limbaugh & Moveon,org) and some that you'll find, with time, that are purely agenda driven but not well known (newsmax, truthout, mediamatters, mediaresearch). Believe me. There are plenty out there. Try to avoid using them.
Of course, some on the Right will NEVER believe anything CNN writes, and some on the Left will NEVER believe anything FoxNews writes, but for God's sake!...Going to ISuckLeftwingC*ck.com or F*ckLiberals.net is nothing more than starting a food fight...

1) They didn't "refuse to be bullied" because there was no bullying...

2) No Muslim group "demanded" anything...They requested...

3) And here's the MOST retarded thing...The demand was they "change" the whole friggin' recipe???????

...No, dipsh*ts...They requested they KEEP 99.999999% of the recipe and ADD a selection that gets specially made...

When I see Conservatives pull this crap, I get downright embarrassed...This was 100% FAKE NEWS...Aren't Conservatives always screaming about this instead of playing "Two Can Play That Retarded Game!!!!"???...

No need for the phony outrage.
So, since I have a food allergy, which I have discovered is not as rare as it once was, that I have the right to demand that KFC change their recipe and preparation, to cater to my needs?

No, I don't have that right, and my physical allergy far exceeds a religious want, since you can't die from it in a religious aspect.

Restaurants that CHOOSE to be halal, great! Restaurants that don't choose to be halal, great! You have to pick and choose what suits your needs, physical or spiritual... you do not force someone to your wants or needs.

Understand the difference?

I assume that you boycott kosher restaurants then? Do you ever go to Dunkin Donuts? Because they operate a bunch of kosher locations in the US.

And, FYI, contrary to the misinformation In this thread:

Quote:
But contrary to what many assume, most animals killed by halal methods are stunned before slaughter. FSA estimates suggest that 88% of animals in the UK killed by halal methods were stunned beforehand in a way that many Muslims find religiously acceptable.
https://www.theguardian.com/lifeands...ughter-involve

And, from the KFC UK website describing how they sell halal certified chicken:

Quote:
There is no compromise to our welfare standards. We continue to insist that our poultry is stunned before slaughter, using a technique called 'stun-to-stun'. We only buy high quality, Grade A, farm-assured chicken from trustworthy suppliers, who are contractually required to meet or exceed all relevant UK and EU legislation and this will not change.

In the UK they bend over backwards for the Muslim community.
I know that for a fact.
I lived in West Yorkshire for 5 years.
Batley, Dewsbury, Heckmondwike are some of the worst places to eat in any restaurant.
Never mind halal food, the establishments are filthy.

There can be no mixture of Kosher and non Kosher in the kitchen.
I believe it is the same with Halal. But Kashrut, meat and milk together, is not practiced.

If you have ever been in an orthodox Jewish home you would see they often have two kitchens.

So,,, Pizza Hut can provide a "kosher Pickle' but it cannot provide a "Kosher" sandwich.

And since they offer pork products, the kitchen cannot be certified Kosher or Halal.
So in Liberal world a vegetarian should be able to demand that the outback steakhouse sell only veggie meat, because preparing veggie meat on the same tables and grill as real meat would taint it. I don't see any difference.

No one should be able to "Force" companies to change their practices to suit individual needs and requirements, period!

You've really gone off the reservation today.
When you let an animal just bleed out like they do with Kosher and Halal that is animal abuse. End of subject.
