Because we are living in the time of political correctness and if you have an opinion about something that goes against the majority of retards these days you are a racist bigot etc.
it's a sad society we live in. I share your frustration
He hath forbidden you only carrion, and blood, and swineflesh, and that which hath been immolated to (the name of) any other than Allah. But he who is driven by necessity, neither craving nor transgressing, it is no sin for him. Lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
He hath forbidden for you only carrion and blood and swineflesh and that which hath been immolated in the name of any other than Allah; but he who is driven thereto, neither craving nor transgressing, lo! then Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
Forbidden unto you (for food) are carrion and blood and swineflesh, and that which hath been dedicated unto any other than Allah, and the strangled, and the dead through beating, and the dead through falling from a height, and that which hath been killed by (the goring of) horns, and the devoured of wild beasts, saving that which ye make lawful (by the death-stroke), and that which hath been immolated unto idols. And (forbidden is it) that ye swear by the divining arrows. This is an abomination. This day are those who disbelieve in despair of (ever harming) your religion; so fear them not, fear Me! This day have I perfected your religion for you and completed My favour unto you, and have chosen for you as religion al-Islam. Whoso is forced by hunger, not by will, to sin: (for him) lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

If they won't touch BACON..... Then I'm sorry, but they aren't even human.
At this point we are talking about what an object thinks about something..... Who cares what your laptop thinks about the pron you watch on it?
In Australia halal certification is big business, with the Government skimming off the top. The muslim's in Aust make million's out of this scam and make life difficult for normal aussies, with the costs of halal being passed onto the consumer. Eat PORK,PORK my boy, it's killed normally......
most meat and dairy is halal

This is economics pure and simple.
With the exception of butchering, most food we eat is halal with or without the sticker.
All the sticker means is that it doesnt come into contact with anything haram.
We have the stickers so we can export the product to muslim countries, it is not that anything special has happened to the food.
I dislike all dogmatic religions and probably rate islam and judaism on the same level just slightly below christianity but this is an example of unnecessary and unjustified fear
