So here's a question. At my university, in the student cafeteria (the one that you have to go to if you live on residence) there is a halal grill. For those who don't know what that is (I didn't until about an hour ago) it's where they serve food that is acceptable to the Muslim code of conduct. They don't have a big muslim population (with the exception of the cooks) at the school and my question is, should I be offended by this? Is having something religious like this appropriate? They don't have a kosher grill, or anything for any other religions even. I'm not even sure how I feel about it, I just know I don't like it.
Does anyone think I should make a fuss about it or should I just ignore it?
Scott, okay I went out and did some exploring. Dr Grandin seems to have done a lot of work on this.
Dr. Grandin even found a method of reasonable euthanasia for halal slaughter. Its really interesting stuff. I would fully advocate this being the standard for halal.
She's amazing. I first heard of her when she did an interview on NPR's Fresh Air. Now there's a movie about her too. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1278469/
