Parents fury as pork sausages are banned from the school menu and replaced with halal meat
http://www.dailymail.co.uk ^ | march 7, 2014 | ben endley

Parents have condemned a school's decision to ban all pork products from the menu and replace other meats with halal versions.

Pupils aged between three and 11 at Brinsworth Manor Infant and Junior Schools in Rotherham - which Ofsted identifies as having only a small number of pupils from minority ethnic groups - will no longer be able to enjoy sausages, bacon or ham.

Parents at both schools, which share a site, were told of the decision in a letter from Rotherham Council’s principal catering officer Ron Parry, who wrote that there had been ‘minor adjustments’ to the lunch menu.

The move comes as Britain's vet John Blackwell called for Muslims and Jews to use more 'acceptable' methods of killing.

And parents have branded the decision 'a scandal' as only twenty per cent of the 600 pupils are Muslim and the decision to provide halal meat was up to individual schools in the town.

A mother with an 11-year-old girl at the school, who asked not to be named for fear of being branded racist, said: 'At home I pay more for organic and free range food. I am a Christian but I don’t do it because of that, it’s more for the respect of how animals are killed.

It’s like looking thru a time portal into our future. Ten or twenty years, and we’ll be reading about Cleveland or Atlanta doing this.

Brits have been eating pork sausages for thousands of years and now, because some fanatics from the desert show up on their shores, they cannot eat their long-established traditional foods because it might culturally offend the interlopers? Drive them into the sea and don’t look back.

From Front Page Magazine, 2008:

Meanwhile, in the United States in 2007, several school districts removed pork products from their cafeteria offerings. Dearborn, Mich., schools banned pork completely to avoid the possibility that Muslims students might unknowingly eat it. The district later added special halal foods to its menu to cater to the demands of its Muslim population. An elementary school in San Diego that offers Arabic, single-gender classes and Muslim-only organized prayer, no longer offers pork to any of its students. And in Oak Lawn, Ill., where the administration is debating elimination of Christmas holiday celebrations, pork has already been banished from the school lunchroom.

Orthodox Jews, who follow kosher laws that prohibit the consumption of pork, have never demanded such special considerations for their chosen dietary habits nor have Jews feared accidental pork ingestion. They privately moderate their consumption according to their religious observances and often consume food prepared at home according to prescribed regulations.

British sausage is awful stuff. I'd prefer a good shish kabob or shawarma.

Well, technically, you might want to say 1065, because in 1066 they had a HUGE immigration problem with the some ex-Vikings from Northern France!

Next they will require the girls to wear the Muslim bags over their heads and the guys to wear those guy dresses that the Muslim Imam spooks wear.

Well, there ya go. It seems like it is limited to isolated schools or smaller, probably Muslim-heavy, towns here at the moment. I don’t doubt we’ll see some big cities going that way soon enough, if we keep on this course.

I will bet you that they’ll still serve meat on Fridays during Lent, however.

And... I'd like some pie, and not the crust!

I am of the opinion that halal meat has been sacrificed to the moon god of Islam and is forbidden to Christians to eat.

1 Corinthians 10:20-21, 28
But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils. Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils. (vv.20-21)
But if any man say unto you, This is offered in sacrifice unto idols, eat not for his sake that shewed it, and for conscience sake: for the earth is the Lord’s, and the fulness thereof. (v.28)
