The Dutch parliament voted on Tuesday to ban ritual slaughter of animals, a move strongly opposed by the country's Muslim and Jewish minorities, but left a loophole that could let traditional butchery continue.

The bill by the small Animal Rights Party, the first such group in Europe to win seats in a national parliament, passed the lower house of parliament and must be approved by the upper house before becoming law.

It stipulates that livestock must be stunned before being slaughtered, contrary to the Muslim halal and Jewish kosher laws that require animals to be fully conscious.

"This way of killing causes unnecessary pain to animals. Religious freedom cannot be unlimited," Marianne Thieme, head of Animal Rights Party, said before the vote. "For us religious freedom stops where human or animal suffering begins."

In a rare show of unity, the Netherlands' Muslim and Jewish communities -- about 1 million and 40,000 respectively in a total population of 16 million -- have condemned the proposed ban as a violation of their religious freedom.

My dad worked on the kill floor of a meat packing plant and he took me to work with him a coupla times when I was a kid in order to show me where hamburgers come from. He didn't want me to grow up and be a simpering, squeamish, sheltered little Nancy like the majority of clueless Americans in the world today.

I watched them butcher a few cows. They used a captive blot gun for the kill... same as that psycho dude in No Country for Old Men.



Put it right between Bessie's eyes, pulled the trigger...Thwack! Lights out.

Later on I was working for a scale and weighing systems company and one of my accounts was a custom butcher plant. I was there one day when the rabbi was doing the "kosher kill" on a cow. The meshugenah little heeb pulled out a big knife a slit the poor fucker's throat. It was fucking brutal... blood gushing all over the joint and the cow bugged the fuck out... bucked and kicked for a good five minutes before it finally went still.

More stupid ass primitive religious savagery.

And people wonder why the two party system is superior to proportional representation.

I don't, it's not.

I see nothing wrong here. Move along.
Three words: Animal Rights Party.

You like hamburgers? Chicken? You want to bitch about people imposing beliefs on others, there is s real example of exactly that.

Oh wait. Forcing beliefs on people is alright as long as the victims are religious.

Its been fine for religions to force beliefs, oppress, and murder forever; don't confuse disallowing religion to continue with its bullshit to forcing beliefs on the 'religious victims'.

No, your religious pity party is bullshit. Attempting to play they victim is laughable and fails... hard.
Tell us how anything I said was wrong. The same people who cry about religion imposing beliefs on people are the first to do the exact same thing given a chance, and that's exactly what you did. At least you're being honest about it instead of hiding behind animal rights.

Sorry, religious rights only go so far. Take your fucking burka off for your drivers license Muslims, no you can't fuck 12-year-olds Mormons, letting your child die because faith healing is child abuse and murder Christians, sorry and no Jews, you can't fucking torture animals.

You do realize that kosher and halal slaughter were created to reduce the suffering of the animal, right?

But don't let that get in the way of your hatred.

They slit their throats. It takes a long time to die that way. Back when they made these arcane rules it may have been the best method, but it's not anymore. We can kill the animals clean with a single shot. I'm no peta asshole, but I don't see how this is anything but reasonable.

Yep because slitting the throat and letting it die for 5 minutes is MUCH less painful and scary for an animal than punching a hole through it's brain.

And when modern technology offered options that further reduced the suffering of animals the kosher and halal methods weren't abandoned why exactly?
