Interesting. You think they are saying that it is really Halal and yet it isn't? hmmmm. That would be interesting to uncover!
Seriously ... If I want to have a hamburger I want just a hamburger. I don't want it 'blessed' by a Muslim, a Rabbi, a Hindu, a Shaman, or anyone
else. I don't want to ingest something that has been dedicated to a god or spirit that I don't believe in or that I don't want to deal with.
That may be superstitious or it may be good religious practice. Either way, I'm glad it's Australia that is dealing with it and not any fast food
places here in the N.E. USA.
The thing is ... they are selling the stuff and not advertising that it's been Islamic blessed. People going through the drive through aren't told.
People in the establishment have one small sign that says what the meat is. And when people ask for regular burgers they are told to go away.
I could just see something like this in the USA bible belt - Mcdonalds selling hamburgers blessed by Catholic priests and not telling anyone about it.
HEY DOGGIE ... there would be a ruckus in the anti-Catholic bible belt. AND the fundementalists would be right to be upset.
