Most people here in the U.S. strongly believe in and support the principal of consistently protecting and respecting the religious rights of everyone on Earth and it’s truly quite amazing that there is as much freedom of religious expression experienced here in the country, without problematic backlashes and turmoil resulting from these freedoms.

However, there have been more and more stories in the press, coming out of England, regarding some proponents vigilantly pushing for the Islamic principals of “Halal” to be implemented throughout the British society, including many of the most popular fast food restaurants and eateries.

What’s really beginning to draw a whole lot of attention lately is the fact that both KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken) and Dominos Pizza, two restaurants that have recently made major strides in gaining loyal customers with some very popular menu items that feature bacon,  are now deciding to bow to the political pressures of these Islamic groups making their demands, and now many other people are feeling as if they, the majority, are now suffering from having their rights infringed upon by a small minority interest.

“The Three Things” that you are always told never to talk about at a party are: Politics, Religion and Sex, so any story that comes along that includes 2 of those 3 taboo topics must always be handles with the utmost in tolerant respect and open minded grace and understanding.

For those who are unfamiliar with the laws of “Halal,” here is what an online dictionary explains: Islamic dietary laws, according to the “Shariah” (The code of law derived from the Koran and the teachings and examples of their Prophet) over-seeing which food is lawful or legal for a Muslim to consume.

According to the laws of “Halal, these Muslim dietary laws strictly forbid the eating of pork and the drinking of alcohol, as well as prescribing specific mandates and methods for which the food is to be prepared, including the proper way to slaughter the animals used for eating, with a particular blessing and process.

Apparently the lines have been drawn and the media is announcing more and more strong and powerful British opposition and resistance from many “Non-Muslim” citizens, who are now complaining that the rights of the vast majority are now being squelched by a small, but extremely vocal minority.

Dominos

Many outraged regular customers of both KFC and Dominos are now calling for people to show their solidarity and let their local Dominos and KFC restaurants know that if they continue along the path of “thumbing their nose” at the vast majority of their long-time, regular customers, there will be boycotts, demonstrations, as well as vigilant opposition all throughout Britain, as well as many of the other western countries, where these two franchises operate.

So while the gigantic, swelling wave of “Baco-Mania” continues to gain momentum, size and speed here in the United States, some fast food franchises in the UK are in the painful process of deciding whether or not to completely cleanse the premises of any pork product or alcohol, in order to appease and appeal to a small but dedicate and vocal minority.

Apparently it’s not just a matter of “Halal” stating that a Muslim is not to eat pork, but they are not to consume any food that is served at a restaurant or prepared in a kitchen that has served or prepared any food that is proclaimed to be “Haram,” which is the exact antithesis or opposite of “Halal!”
