Welcome to Dearborn, Michigan. Where, if you order meat from the school lunch menu, you’ll have a halal of a good time. Yes, strict Islamic law is driving the lunch menu at taxpayer-funded public schools. So, where are the separation of church and state Stasi?
A cursory search for what would be predictable outrage produced nothing. You are as likely to find any outrage over this as you are a gay couple suing a Muslim baker for refusing to make them a wedding cake. But a donated bible at the local VA – that has got to stop.
All the meat served in Dearborn will now be halal. Before some schools offered all halal, while other had a mix, which contributed to confusion about which menu was being served at which school….
PJ Media reports that Dearborn has had halal as an option in some schools going back to 2001. And so what you’re thinking, well, even if we disregard personal feelings about the method of slaughter, halal is a religious ceremony undertaken in a purposeful preparation of the meat.
The food must come from a supplier that uses halal practices. Dhabīḥah (ذَبِيْحَة) is the prescribed method of slaughter for all meat sources, excluding fish and other sea-life, per Islamic law. This method of slaughtering animals consists of using a well-sharpened knife to make a swift, deep incision that cuts the front of the throat, the carotid artery, trachea, and jugular veins. The head of an animal that is slaughtered using halal methods is aligned with the qiblah. In addition to the direction, permitted animals should be slaughtered upon utterance of the Islamic prayer Bismillah “in the name of God“.
There are probably several halal (dozen) suppliers in Dearbornistan. Parents who feel that strongly should provide their children with the appropriate food in a packed lunch. That is if this were actually about that. Anyone paying attention is familiar with the scenario.
Build a mosque. Important a community (refugees, typically) expand until you have majority control of an area (like Dearborn). Then impose Islamic Law on everyone in or near it.
Rinse, lather, repeat.
From where I sit, that’s not new. It is how nations have been conquered for millennia. It is the silence form the majority of the atheists and anti-religionists. The cultural relativists and humanists who are triggered by a bible in a Hotel room drawer or on display at a local VA in New Hampshire.
Where are they? Nowhere? Why? Because their ‘principles’ have less to do with their presumed right (to no religion) and more to do with discouraging or dismantling Faiths that focus on individual and family rights before the rights of a supreme state.
Marxism, Communism, National Socialism,
Democrat Socialism, (environmentalism), and Islamism are all supremacy ideologies that deny individuals rights. They are all left-wing worldviews.
American leftists love that about Islam. The problem, however, as with most leftists, is they assume that when “the day” comes, and ideological supremacy rules the land that it will be theirs, and they will be in charge or at least sitting at the table.
That’s not how it works.
In the Middle East, the Muslims have rid themselves almost entirely of Christians. It is their earnest desire to drive out or wipe out the Jews. In Africa, it leads to the slaughter of entire villages of Christians.
In Dearborn, they are systematically taking over, normalizing Islamic Law until there is room for no other.
And no, there is no program for Kosher or Hindu or another diet based on religious belief. Those kids, if there are any left, get to bag lunch it. At least until the “schools” ban that under Islamic Law.
