Why I don’t like Halal food certification

Islamic law prevents muslims consuming certain foods and requires food to be prepared in a certain way. Halal is simply an Arabic word meaning permitted or lawful. Applied to food, it is the dietary standard as prescribed in the qu’ran.Halal certification is the process of inspection and certification that a food product meets sharia law.

Losing my religion

Women and girls have been discriminated against for too long in a twisted interpretation of the word of God.I HAVE been a practising Christian all my life and a deacon and Bible teacher for many years.
