How Do You Like YOUR Butterball Turkey?

November 21, 2011 at 3:37 PM 9 comments

It has come to my attention – and been verified by a number of sources – that Butterball turkeys are now halal-compliant.

In fact, I just got off the phone with the folks at Butterball (they are open until 7pm EST) to hear for myself.  The woman I spoke with was very nice.  I explained my problem and predicament.  She was very kind in taking down what I had to say and promised she would be forwarding it onto the powers that be (my words).

She also told me they have been receiving phone calls non-stop all day.  I’m glad to hear it.  I explained to her how Islam works.  They use every method at their disposal to encroach upon society.  It doesn’t matter if they’re dealing with schools, political office, grocery stores, or whatever.

They go through life asking and expecting special privileges.  These seem reasonable to most people, so they extend the privilege to them.  What people FAIL to realize is that the catering to Islam NEVER stops!

Dhabihah is the process for making foods halal-compliant.  What this means is that there is a special ceremonial process that the turkeys – in this case – go through at the time of slaughter.  Included in this ceremony is the calling out of Allah’s name while the animal is being slaughtered.  If this part does not happen, Muslims are not supposed to eat the meat from that slaughtered animal.

So here’s what we have – Butterball is now catering to Islam so that the Muslims can now eat their turkeys.  This means that because I have been made aware of this process, I cannot eat the turkeys, turkeys that I have been eating for years!

All Muslim scholars hold that mentioning God Almighty name at the time of slaughter is a must, they differed as to whether or not forgetting to do so or leaving it off intentionally at the time of slaughter rendered the sacrifice void and thus the meat forbidden for consumption. They also agree that if other than God’s name is mentioned then this would be forbidden, due to the verse “Eat not of that (meat) on which Allah’s Name has not been pronounced.” [Al-Anaam 6:121; emphasis added]”

So basically, the turkeys that we have eaten for years during our Thanksgiving feasts are now off-limits to me because the birds are now being dedicated to a false god, which is really no God at all.  Paul tells Christians that it is fine to eat meat that has been sacrificed to idols IF WE ARE NOT AWARE OF IT, but he also makes it clear that if we KNOW food has been sacrificed to idols, we are to avoid it (cf. 1 Corinthians 8).

This CATERING to Islam has GOT to stop!  While Butterball and other corporations are busy catering to Islam, they are forcing ME and many others to go somewhere else!  This makes no sense and it is not even good business sense.

I do NOT like to KNOWINGLY eat meat sacrificed to IDOLS and I will NOT.  I am not going to eat meat that has been dedicated to Allah, because as far as I am concerned, Allah and the God of the Bible are not the same Person.  If that is the case, then Allah can be only one individual:  Satan.

This is ridiculous.

If a Muslim wants his turkey to be halal-compliant, then they should go buy their own live turkey and have it done their way.  We do NOT need corporations to start slaughtering animals while some Imam calls out the name of Allah during the process.

After decades, Butterball has just lost me as a customer until and/or if this situation is ever corrected.

This is one of the big problems with Islam.  Since their entire ideology consumes their lives – politically, religiously, and militarily – it is impossible for a Muslim to separate one thing from another.  In order for them to function OUTSIDE of their own culture, the world is expected to BEND to Islam.  If not, they become upset, angry, and murderous.

So think of it.  They want to eat turkeys but they can’t eat turkeys because the turkeys they want to eat are not halal-compliant.  They go to the producers of said turkey and simply “ask” them to make the turkeys halal-compliant, which involves the process cited above.

In the process of agreeing to make Butterball turkeys halal-compliant, they MUST include the ceremony described above or the turkey does not become halal-compliant.  So while Butterball Corp is worrying about ensuring that Muslims can eat their turkeys, they opt to go through the ceremonial process called Dhabihah, which includes dedicating that bird to Allah.

Now that I know this, I can’t eat it, so Butterball has lost my business.

But more importantly than this is to realize that this is exactly how Muslims act in an open and free society.  They work here and there, pushing themselves on city councils, corporations, colleges, and schools so that special privileges will be extended to them.

As a Christian, if I was in a court room and decided that it was time to say my prayers and proceeded to do so, as soon as the bailiffs realized what was going on, I would be escorted out.   However, because Muslims are seen as coming from “third world” or otherwise underdeveloped nations that still act like they it is A.D. 600-700, they can’t be expected to understand.  After all, it’s only their particular culture, so give them space to say their prayers.

Muslim students attending a Roman Catholic College are now asking the school to provide them with a room that is completely free of religious icons and imagery.  What?  It’s a CATHOLIC college for crying out loud.  Why did they voluntarily decide to attend a Roman Catholic College if they are Muslims?  The official word is that they “feel safer” there than at secular colleges.  That’s garbage.  How often do we hear of crimes against Muslims in the U.S. solely because they are Muslim?  You can bet if it existed, Chris Matthews would be the first one to bring it to the world.

It’s a ruse, a clever ruse, designed to allow Muslims to get what they want.  Once they get a room that is completely free of religious icons and imagery, they will not stop there.  Then, they will need special ceremonial wash basins.  Then they will need this or that.  Soon, they will literally be “conquering” areas of that Roman Catholic College without having to lift a sword.

This is what Islam is attempting to accomplish here in America.  I’m sure the pundits and sympathizers of Islam will think that I’m simply going off and there is little intelligence to my words.  That doesn’t matter.  Some of the things Islamic groups like CAIR are attempting to do right now in America is completely ridiculous and yet, they are moving forward because there are very few people standing in their way.

Muslims are WELCOME in America if they come here through legal channels.  They are NOT welcome to arrive and begin attempting to turn American society into an Islamic state based on their specific food needs that maintain that in order for them to be part of society, America must give them what they want and “need.”  Too bad!  No one is giving me what I want and I don’t expect my government to stop using my tax dollars to pay for abortions any time soon.  I don’t expect the liberals in Congress to stop throwing away money on asinine things.  I don’t expect those same liberals to all of a sudden, do an about-face with respect to illegal aliens flooding into this country.

Corporations need to wake up!  They cannot expect to be able to cater to ALL people.  It’s impossible.  If Butterball had refused to make their turkeys halal-compliant, they would have lost SOME Muslim customers.  Now that they have decided that Muslims are the only people they care to cater to, they have lost my business and many others are falling in line with me.

We are seeing the true nature of Islam, but most are still blind to it.  Most don’t care if a turkey is dedicated to Allah or not.  They’ll still eat it.  Good for them.  These are the same people who do not believe that our country was founded on Christian principles (it was not founded as a Christian nation, there is a difference), or the real reason for Thanksgiving.

So which other companies and corporations are going to go halal-compliant?  What they need to realize is that they are making a decision to push certain groups of customers away.

The most asinine thing about this whole situation is that for the orthodox Muslim, Thanksgiving has no real meaning for him.  They don’t care about the Thanksgiving celebration that occurs in America!  They are not interested in participating because they are grateful that America exists and they can immigrate to this country.  These same orthodox Muslims see America as “the great Satan.”

We’ll see how this turns out, but until it changes – IF it changes – another producer of turkeys will get my business.  That’s just the way it is…

Islam and the Muslim Brotherhood Butterball Turkeys Have Gone Halal

    It is this ignorance that always make me wonder about you so call intellects, first of all where do you get that Muslims are praying to a foreign God, if you take the time to do some research you would realize Allah is just the Arabic word for GOD, but you are in such a hurry to find something to complain about. What about the Muslims that are born here in the USA, are they forcing themselves on Western culture? It is a religion, but your ignorance just won’t let you see that. Jesus Christ came to teach people tolerance, and love and to see you so call Christians act this way is amazing. If you want to be Christ like why don’t you do what he did get on your knees and pray to GOD just like he did. You would rather eat meat that was slaughtered inhumanely, sometimes people need to research and find out things for themselves first before they make comments on thing they don’t understand, you would rather be lead by others than, try to go it on your own. I wonder where some of your ancestors are from, I am happy that they were all born and raised here in this country, not one of them were from any other country, granted that there are people here illegally but that is from every country, and culture. There are more important thing to worry about than how a group of people are getting their meat killed, look around your neighborhood and feed some of the hungry kids, help an elderly person do something more constructive with your time. So you’re not going to eat their turkey anymore suit yourself, but don’t impose your ignorance on anyone else there is enough people doing that already, get a life help those around you and be blessed for your kindness.

      First up, I NEVER said or claimed to be an “intellect” and the label is insulting.

      Secondly, I’m quite aware that the word “allah” simply means “god.” That’s a no-brainer. So why am I concerned about Islam? Because it is nothing like Christianity, due to its founder (Muhammad) and teachings.

      You think Jesus came to teach people TOLERANCE? I would strongly suggest that you go back and re-read the New Testament, if you have read it at all, which does not seem to be the case.

      Jesus came for ONE purpose: it was to announce that He was/is the way, the truth, and the life and no one comes to the Father except THROUGH Him. He lived a sinless life, He died an extremely painful death and rose on the third day.

      In essence, what Jesus did was to lay claim to the fact that He and He alone was the only true path. The truth is not found in Buddhism, Islam, Zoroastrianism or anything else.

      It is obvious that you simply do NOT get the point at all about halal-compliant turkeys or anything else to do with Islam. THAT to me is scary considering the fact that Islam is a growing influence throughout the world.

      It is really difficult to address your concerns in a few paragraphs, especially when so many books and videos have been produced on the dangers of Islam.

      It is not in HOW the meat was slaughtered. It is in the CEREMONY surrounding the slaughter. While I fully realize that this prayed over meat cannot affect me negatively, what concerns me most is the fact that orthodox Jews may not have even been aware of the process because Butterball HID it from the public! Therefore, orthodox Jews may have eaten meat that was – to them – UNCLEAN. That does not concern you at all though, does it?

      Look, the reality is that Butterball can do anything they want to do. The truth of the matter is that the way their turkeys are processed has drastically CHANGED. Yet, they felt no compulsion to even tell anyone of the change. There is no label on the turkey signifying it was halal-compliant, as there are with Kosher foods.

      Butterball COULD have had a win-win situation but instead they opted to make ALL of their turkeys halal-compliant and by doing so, have effectively made their turkeys off-limits to orthodox Jews. Butterball could have simply taken SOME of their turkeys and made them halal-compliant, while leaving the rest alone. This way EVERYONE would be able to enjoy their turkeys. They chose to become secretive about it and didn’t even think it was fair and reasonable to LABEL their turkeys as halal-compliant. Sorry, there is something wrong with that.

      Kosher foods are NOT produced like this and in fact, they have their own plants.

      Moreover, the money that must be paid to Islamic clerics (imams) for the ceremony goes to the Muslim community and unfortunately, there are too many alleged connections between some of the larger mosques in America and terrorism.

      Are you aware of ANYTHING that has been happening in Great Britain, France, the Netherlands, Belgium, and various other places in Europe?

      You seem like some bleeding heart who erroneously believes that people should be given whatever they want because you see Christians as people who are supposed to roll over and play dead. God forbid as a Christian I protest something, right? Because Jesus said “turn the other cheek” and “go the extra mile” then I am to be a doormat, right?

      Do you have any idea of what Jesus actually MEANT when He voiced those words? I doubt seriously that you have any clue at all.

      I do NOT act like radical Islamists do when they don’t get their way. I don’t strap on bombs or shoot to kill people wantonly. I use the legal channels that are available to me to CHANGE things. If that means writing a letter, or an article for my blog, then that’s what I will do.

      You want to talk about tolerance? Let’s talk about Islam, the most intolerant ideology in the world and guess what, they are coming to a neighborhood near you.

      I just wrote an article yesterday about three Somali Muslim women in Great Britain who viciously attacked a young white woman using racial epithets during the attack (“Kill the white slag!”). It was all caught on video. The women were arrested and charged but they were given suspended sentences when they told the judge that they were not used to alcohol because it is against their religion.

      In the UK, a white man yelled at a mosque and is spending 9 months in jail. Another white woman made comments about immigrants on the bus and is also in jail. But if you’re Muslim and you beat a white person, that’s okay. No worries. You know why? Because of people like you.

      In Sweden, three Somali Muslim men are actually on trial for attempted murder of an artist who fears for his life because he drew a cartoon of Muhammad. It is against Islamic law to draw anything that supposedly resembles Muhammad.

      You don’t see what’s happening, do you? Of course not. You’re too busy condemning me. WAKE UP! Islam wants to control the world and because of people like you, they will.

      You also likely think that I don’t like or even hate Muslims. Not true anymore than I hate myself for being a sinner. The reality though is that to stand by and allow Islam to continue to encroach upon society is WRONG. That’s not being tolerant. That’s willfully giving up my freedoms. It’s a turkey today and a Christmas tree tomorrow. After the Christmas tree, it will be something else. People like you just don’t get it and if you ever do, it will be way too late.

      By the way, Islam – in my mind – is NOT a religion. It is an ideology that affects not only every aspect of the Muslims’ life, but they expect SOCIETY to change to meet their needs/beliefs. Do you understand that?

      If I as a Christian demanded/expected half of what Muslims expect/demand, no one in the USA would put up with that. We have atheists every day ridiculing my beliefs through billboards, skeleton Santas nailed to crosses and the like. I’m wondering why you aren’t on THEIR case because of THEIR intolerance. Moreover, do you honestly believe these atheists would do that to Muslims? You can’t be that naive. Why wouldn’t they do that to Muslims? Because Muslims might actually FIGHT back, physically. Why? Because Islam is the most INTOLERANT ideology on the face of the earth.

      In closing, I have NO problem with people who are Muslims, Jews, Buddhists, or anything else. They have their life and their choices. However, Islam is the ONLY “religion” that expects and demands every society to change to meet their demands/expectations. No other religion does this. Ideologies do this and while Islam is masquerading as a religion, they are expecting the entire world to bend to their will.

      In the United States right now, there are several court cases in which Islamic groups like CAIR are desperately trying to have the courts decide their case using Sharia Law, not the law based on the U.S. Constitution. IF they are successful, then they will have successfully proved that International law trumps the U.S. Constitution. Do you know what that means? I’ll let you figure it out.

      The point is that Islam is FAR more than just a religion. It is an ideology like communism, Marxism, socialism or any other “ism” (Islamism). It is so frustrating having to deal with people like you who literally have no clue about how badly Islam wants to change America or any nation they “adopt.”

      They are moving toward the next caliphate and in fact, many Muslims around the world firmly believe that the next caliphate is just around the corner.

      Before you continue to condemn me, I would strongly suggest that you start doing some research. With all the information available today, there is really no excuse to be ignorant. Of course, this is exactly what Islam hopes for because they know that the people who are ignorant often sympathize (as you do) with them. This makes it so much easier for them to get what they want and to pull the wool over your eyes. Obviously, it’s working…

      Correen, false gods are idols. Allah is a false god. Allah, therefore is an idol.

      1 Cor 10:19-21, “… the sacrifices of pagans are offered to demons, not to God, and I do not want you to be participants with demons. You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons too; you cannot have a part in both the Lord’s table and the table of demons.”

      Acts 15:29, “You are to abstain from food sacrificed to idols, from blood, from the meat of strangled animals and from sexual immorality. You will do well to avoid these things.”

      Yes, the word “Allah” means “God” in Arabic and can be a title, but if you believe that the name Allah in the Qur’an is the same God of the Bible, then you don’t know a single thing about Christianity. Show me once where the name of “Allah” is in the Old or New Testament. Show me once the name of Yahweh in the Qur’an.

      Here are a few points I would encourage you to consider carefully:

      * Islam has come to mean ‘submission’. The goal of Islam is to bring the whole world into submission to Allah. The Qu’ran (Sura’s 2, 4, 5, 9 and 47) teaches that all ‘infidels’ (non-Muslims) must either convert to Islam or be killed or enslaved. The God of the Bible tells us that conversion is the work of God, therefore no-one can be forced to convert to Christianity.

      * The Qur’an says God has no son and is not a father. It rejects the Trinitarian God of the Bible. Muhammad taught that Jesus and Christians were not to be taken as friends (Sura’s 5 and 9).

      * Allah was the pagan moon god of Mohammed’s Quresh tribe represented by various idols, including a sacred stone. The God of the Bible forbids idolatry.

      * Islam teaches the creation of a Muslim empire and the use of lethal force against opponents. The God of the Bible affirms that His kingdom is not of this world and commands that Christians love those who oppose them (John 18:34 and Matthew 5:44).

      *Muhammad, the founder of Islam and supposedly the last of God’s prophets, performed no miracles. Jesus Christ the true Son of God and seal of all God’s prophets performed many miracles – proving His claims to divinity. The God of the Bible performs miracles. The God of Islam is unconcerned with the human condition and has never miraculously demonstrated a loving concern for individuals.

      * Muhammad is declared a sinner in the Quran (Sura’s 9, 40 and 48). Jesus Christ was and is sinless.

      * The Quran often contradicts the Bible. It denies that Jesus was God incarnate or that he died on the cross for the forgiveness of sins. Within this context alone the following verses testify that Allah cannot be the God of the Bible:

      Romans 10:9: That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord”, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

      1 Corinthians 12:3: Therefore I tell you that no-one who is speaking by the Spirit of God says, “Jesus be cursed”, and no-one can say, “Jesus is Lord”, except by the Holy Spirit.

      Read more here. “Allah” of Islam and the God of the Bible are not one and the same.

      Allow me to ask you this, Correen. You seem to be accusing us of “intolerance” and “hatred”. Since when has exposing intolerance and hatred itself become intolerant and hateful? Should we be silent and say nothing about abortion? Should we be silent and say nothing about murder? Should we be silent and say nothing about child molestation? Should we be silent and say nothing about false teachings in the Church? Should we be silent and say nothing about threats against our nation and its freedoms? Should we be silent and say nothing about terrorism? Should we tolerate all of these things?

      When Jesus exposed the evils and hypocrisy in the teachings and traditions of the Pharisees in Luke 11, was this hatred? What this intolerant? When Jesus made a whip, drove out the merchants from the Temple and overturned their tables in John 2, did he fail to live up to your idea of the “tolerant” Jesus that you want us to believe in? Why or why not?

      The teachings of Islam attack the very foundations upon which the Christian faith is built. Should we be silent and refrain from contending for the faith of Jesus when Islam denies the Deity of Christ and teaches that Jesus is not the Son of God because “Allah” has no son and that Jesus did not die for your sins? Islam falsely teaches that the Trinity is three gods, and doesn’t even understand what the Trinity is. Should we not defend the tenets of Christianity because it would be “hateful” or “intolerant” for us to do so? In fact, Islam teaches that to believe the basic foundational tenets of Christianity is among the worst of sins you can commit, and unless you reject Jesus as God, reject His death on the cross, reject the resurrection and instead believe in the prophet Mohammed as the “messenger of Allah”, you will be hated by Allah and will end up in an eternity of hell. In 1 Thessalonians 5:21 we are instructed as Christians to test all things, and hold on to that which is good. Judging from your comment, it seems to me that you have tested nothing.

      Yes, Halal food it is sacrificed to “Allah”. Yes, “Allah” is a false god. Yes, “Allah” is an idol according to Biblical Scripture.

      In Revelation 2:19-20 Jesus says,, “‘I know your deeds, and your love and faith and service and perseverance, and that your deeds of late are greater than at first. But I have this against you, that you tolerate the woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, and she teaches and leads My bond-servants astray so that they commit acts of immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols.”

      Those of the Muslim faith are free to practice their faith. And so are we. If Jesus has a problem with His children eating foods sacrificed to idols, then so will we. And we will not tolerate “that woman” …

    Did they say why Butterball is providing halal-compliant turkeys? Is it merely to cater to Muslim sentimentalities, or is it so they can increase their market share by obtaining new customers? If it is the former, then I agree that is quite wrong. However, it is the latter, then that is just capitalism.

    Don’t food manufacturers do the same with kosher-compliant food ? I somehow recall kosher-compliant hot dogs in all New York.

    Corporations are not going to wake up to the dangers of Islam (whether rightly or wrongly), they are going to do what makes them the most profit. If that means halal-compliant turkeys, then unfortunately there is probably little that will change their minds.

      As I noted in my article, Kosher food products are completely separate from other food products. So I have the option of purchasing Kosher foods or non-Kosher foods of the same type (hot dogs, pickles, etc.) because BOTH are available. In other words, Kosher meat is processed ONLY in kosher plants, no ifs, ands or buts about it. Kosher meat is never processed with any other meat.

      In this case, Butterball decided to make ALL of their turkeys available as halal-compliant ONLY, instead of producing SOME as halal-compliant and some as non-halal compliant.

      In doing so, they decided that catering to Islam is fine, in spite of the problems it might cause for the rest of America.

      What will change corporations minds is when they start to notice that they are losing money because to corporations, money is the only thing that talks.

      Muslim’s are forcing themselves upon our Western culture. It is not the same world-wide attitude as Judaism has. Jews just want to be left alone to flourish and to have their own very small nation namely Israel. Islam wants to turn the world into a world-wide caliphate (according to the koran). Islam is an ideology not a religion. Their whole goal of getting meats slaughtered and dedicated to allah is to dominate. http://www.muslimfact.com/bm/terror-in-the-name-of-islam/islam-permits-lying-to-deceive-unbelievers-and-bri.shtml
