For one it makes the process of killing the animal way more brutal. I’m no PETA advocate, but I don’t see the sense in making an animal suffer anymore than it has to.
There are Christians on this forum (obvious) and I wouldn’t be surprised if they had qualms consuming foods sacrificed to a false Idol.
Personally, when I eat out, I don’t think twice whether it’s Kosher or Halal. Now thinking about it, two of the restaurants I frequent, one is Lebanese and the other is Israeli. They probably use Halal and Kosher products.
But food I purchase to cook in my house? I wouldn’t buy halal.[/quote]

Also, Allah just means God. [/quote]
