The Scandinavian nations so often seem to be the most progressive, forward-thinking and civilised of nations and yet again one of them, Denmark, does the right thing and bans the abysmally cruel "religious" slaughter of animals:

Quote:
Denmark’s government has brought in a ban on the religious slaughter of animals for the production of halal and kosher meat, after years of campaigning from welfare activists.

The change to the law, announced last week and effective as of yesterday [Monday 17 February], has been called 'anti-Semitism' by Jewish leaders and 'a clear interference in religious freedom' by the non-profit group Danish Halal.

European regulations require animals to be stunned before they are slaughtered, but grants exemptions on religious grounds. For meat to be considered kosher under Jewish law or halal under Islamic law, the animal must be conscious when killed.

Yet defending his government’s decision to remove this exemption, the minister for agriculture and food Dan Jørgensen told Denmark’s TV2 that 'animal rights come before religion'.


Norway, Poland, Sweden and Switzerland: now Denmark do the right thing - who will be next on the civilised list?

Quote:
[It] has been called 'anti-Semitism' by Jewish leaders

Well I never. Didn't see that coming at all.

This is an interesting point, from a vegetarian too.

Quote:

This is no way to build the society we claim to desire: the one of mutual respect and tolerance. The one of compromise, which isn’t (as the zealots of the RSPCA will claim) a weakness, but an essential ingredient for harmony. Why don’t we just label food clearly, so that everyone can decide for themselves?
Because deciding for others is seductive, to a certain cast of mind. Denmark, I’m afraid, remains rotten. Persecuting adherents over the slaughter of their animals is a dreadful, dangerous step towards proscribing their faith altogether, one I find intolerable.
A drip, drip, drip of intolerance, quite as distasteful as the blood that runs from the bodies of the animals, regardless of how they are killed. Lamb, wash us clean of this iniquity. Save us from the strictures of politicians who deal with humans in the abstract; as inhumane a practice as any devised for the slaughter of livestock.

It is anti semitism. It is exactly what the nazis in Saxony did. Banned kosher for the Jews.

If kosher and halal are cruel ways to slaughter animals, of course they should be banned, as should circumcision as a religious practice.

It was anti semitism in 1933 and it's anti semitism today. Are you stunning your mice and rats before you kill them over there?

I can almost hear an absent member asking Floo if she stuns crickets before feeding them to her spider.

That's different.  They're vermin.
