Denmark bans halal and kosher slaughter

Denmark bans halal and kosher slaughter as minister says ‘animal rights come before religion’

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, has been called “anti-Semitism” by Jewish leaders and “a clear interference in religious freedom” by the non-profit group Danish Halal.

From the same article:

The ban has divided opinions in the country, particularly after it recently made headlines for animal welfare policy after Copenhagen Zoo slaughtered the “surplus” young male giraffe Marius.

On Twitter, David Krikler (@davekriks) wrote: “In Denmark butchering a healthy giraffe in front of kids is cool but a kosher/halal chicken is illegal.”

That sounds an awful lot like "Don't eat"...

Denmark: OK to Rape Animals But Not OK to Have Halal and Kosher Meat

Sheep shagging and other assorted bestiality is legal in Denmark, a country that has recently been marred by controversy over its ban on Halal and Kosher meat slaughter, which is considered “inhumane” by opponents. Minister of agriculture Dan Jørgensen told Denmark’s TV2 that “animal rights come before religion”.

Interestingly, animal brothels are openly doing business in Denmark  where there is a thriving bestiality scene, clients come from such places as Norway, Sweden, Holland and Germany. (h/t: Cliff)

Shok Yuck. This is so disgusting. More inhumane than slaughtering animals for food.
