Re: Halal meat made in Switzerland.

I thought you had strong connections with South Africa Eco? So you should know better. On ignore list too. Do you really think you can come back just to stir- think again.

Re: Halal meat made in Switzerland.

OK. Let me break this down into simple words for the hard-of-thinking.

This is a thread about halal meat. Halal is an Islamic concept. Lots of non-muslims have a bit of a thing about halal meat. Non-muslims are called kafirs by muslims (I know, because I've been called a kafir on several occasions and didn't take any more offence than I would had I been called a heathen or a goy). Lots of non-muslims - kafirs - have expressed opinions about halal meat, despite it being none of their business. I commented upon that.

I did not, at any time, call Odile a kafir.

Now, let's compare this to a hypothetical argument about South Africa. Things get heated, and I say to another member "You're just a stupid kaffer". This would be a direct insult. It would also, for historical reasons, be profoundly offensive.

If you can't tell the difference between the way I used kafir in a thread about halal meat and the hypothetical use of kaffer in a thread about South Africa, then I can only conclude that you are looking for reasons to be offended.
