Wouldn't eat whale or snake, endangered species are a no, no, to me. I am sure Tom would disagree.
Snakes are endangered?

Never tried that, but I do like whale and seal!

Tom has posted on this thread, some the most abominable food stuffs I have ever seen.
Which, the chocolate covered bacon, or the shrimp with chocolate sauce?

Of course, there is also hare in chocolate:

Re: Toblerone is now Halal

Mole, one variant of the Mexican sauce is made with chocolate, dried poblano (ancho) peppers and an interesting mix of herbs, spices, fruit, nuts. Excellent on poultry, for example. Chocolate sauces on savory things are not so unusual.

Re: Toblerone is now Halal

The news does seem to have triggered the readers of a certain newspaper



The ironic thing is that these are the loons that are endlessly yammering on about left/liberal people getting offended by everything.

Yep. Taken from Mail Online but chances are the Express would be just as bad.

It's not the Mail - it's its readers who provide the comments.

I'm not condoning the Mail editorial but if you think the readers' comments in the Mail are shocking, don't read the Swiss readers' comments in Twenty minutes here - they're just as bad, if not worse.

The sausages at the fasnacht in Wohlen AG will be made from chicken instead of port. Imagine the commentary section ^^

Yeah, outrage is amazing, it has physical effects even .... high blood pressure, finger muscle spasm ....


I just luv halal food - my friends cook so yummy, nothing better than an invite for dinner at their house.

Yup some snakes are definitely endangered. I was in Vietnam and there were stalls with live snakes that were hung by the tail and when a customer wanted one they would choose the variety of snake and have the head removed and warm blood squeezed into a glass, sometimes with a shot of venom in whisky, all a bit bizarre to me.

Its a bit backwards to eat whale, considering everything we have come to learn about them and their intelligence, social behaviour etc. I quite disagree with the stance Japan is taking in leaving the IWC just to do its own bit of rebelling against an international agreement. Worlds going a bit doolaa at the moment.

That didn't look quite as bad, game with chocolate in the sauces does work as does a bit of chocolate in a Chili Con Carne or a Mole.

Pigs are intelligent, but we eat them (sometimes dipped in chocolate)!

You started well but I think here we have a problem: The laws defining what is halal or not are not just governed by civic laws. There is no law against eating cat doo-doo but it is forbidden in Islam because it is dirty/unhealthy (we now know if we leave cat poo to compost for a couple of years it will be safe - although still disgusting - to eat). So by the rule of deduction cat poo added Toblerone would be non halal.
...unless you added 3 year old cat poop to Toblerone, in which case it would be halal, according to your post...

...why are we discussing this again?

That is not what I meant when I wrote it at all. I just meant eating feces is worse than halal and non-halal.

Thinking halal is just about hygiene proves that you know little about the matter though. Hygiene is just one of the reasons that would something non-halal.

I say let people eat whatever they want, however they want it, within law.
If a "law" is dictating what you can eat, then you really aren't "free" to eat whatever you want ...or am I missing something?

Apples and oranges. Cannibalism laws are not based on religion, but more to protect people and keep society civil. I think most people can recognize a difference between eating another persons leg versus a non-kosher pickle or a ham sandwich because a holy text told them "no"


....even if cannibalism was legal, where would you obtain human body parts for a BBQ? You'd have to kill other people I guess, which would be a different law violation...

No, it isn't (one would have thought).

Oh, yes it is! (according to a Saudi mufti):

Quote:
Mufti in Saudi Arabia has just declared that a Muslim can cannibalise his wife. You heard correctly: Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah, a man of religious power in Saudi Arabia, believes it is halal to eat your wife.

Clarifying his stance, Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah explains that literally eating your wife is permitted only if you're extremely hungry.
Here

So basically, with Islam* it's make it up as you go along if you want.

* Other major religions are available where you'll also find lots of rule variations/interpretations based on your culture or perversions.
