Gee, hate to get all cynical on y'all at the Daily Mail but...
Maybe this was a financially-motivated move by KFC??? Their stores in Muslim 'ghetto' areas might have been losing business to local chicken houses and kebab shops that do halal, so they're moving in on that territory... I don't like Halal practice (or Islam for that matter), but this isn't a 'moral' issue.
Perhaps your right. Maybe we should see KFC as a good will extension of a western private enterprise willing to adapt thus adding to the general feeling of well being and acceptance toward all people and their ways. Just as long as its good old KFC coming out of the steamer in the end.
Americans are good to talk but there are Chines restaurants in this country in the most far out places and all points in between and we eat the heck out of that food. Some day the White House will be a Chines restaurant.
I don't understand.
Are you saying that KFC should start selling Chinese food because there are Chinese people in far out places selling Chinese food?
Or are you saying that the Chinese restaurants should start selling KFC?

1 Corinthians 8
Concerning Food Sacrificed to Idols
1 Now about food sacrificed to idols: We know that “We all possess knowledge.” But knowledge puffs up while love builds up. 2 Those who think they know something do not yet know as they ought to know. 3 But whoever loves God is known by God.[a]
4 So then, about eating food sacrificed to idols: We know that “An idol is nothing at all in the world” and that “There is no God but one.” 5 For even if there are so-called gods, whether in heaven or on earth (as indeed there are many “gods” and many “lords”), 6 yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live; and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live.
7 But not everyone possesses this knowledge. Some people are still so accustomed to idols that when they eat sacrificial food they think of it as having been sacrificed to a god, and since their conscience is weak, it is defiled. 8 But food does not bring us near to God; we are no worse if we do not eat, and no better if we do.
1 Timothy 4
1 The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. 2 Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron. 3 They forbid people to marry and order them to abstain from certain foods, which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and who know the truth. 4 For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, 5 because it is consecrated by the word of God and prayer.
Freedom From Human Rules
16 Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath day. 17 These are a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found in Christ.
20 Since you died with Christ to the elemental spiritual forces of this world, why, as though you still belonged to the world, do you submit to its rules: 21 “Do not handle! Do not taste! Do not touch!”? 22 These rules, which have to do with things that are all destined to perish with use, are based on merely human commands and teachings. 23 Such regulations indeed have an appearance of wisdom, with their self-imposed worship, their false humility and their harsh treatment of the body, but they lack any value in restraining sensual indulgence.
