Should Christians eat halal meat?

There are 258 comments on the www.barnabasaid.org story from Jan 7, 2011, titled Should Christians eat halal meat?. In it, www.barnabasaid.org reports that:

All over the UK today, supermarket chains, shops and restaurants are selling halal meat. We may find it on the menu at our children’s school or the local hospital, or be offered it when we go to a sporting event. If we go for a meal with Muslim friends, any meat we are served will probably be halal. It can be hard to avoid eating this meat, especially as if is often not labelled as halal and little information is available to the consumer ...

On principle I refuse to eat Halal because it has been proscribed for Islamic religious reasons for the Muslim community. By accepting it, one also accepts the Islamic Dawa to Islamise non-Muslim countries by stealth!
Stop it before it is too late!
This is a very ignorant statement. No wonder the international community makes fun us

Christians can eat halal food as long as they don't do it because it is halal. halal food may be considered food offered to a false god by some.

It is not the food that uphold dignity but too much consummtion denigrade, degrade, damage and belittle the intellectual faculties.

No basically. I am aware that food offered up to other gods is ok because if the gods don't exist so what. It is however painfully obvious who Allah is because what entity would attack the roots of Christianity and deny the crucifixtion and resurrection without which we would die in our sins? If in doubt Google image the sign for halal. See three sixs? So can I

Christians should not eat halal meat because it would be contributing money to a pagan religion by the purchase of such food.

What concerns me is that this stuff is everywhere. It is not labelled and is often given to unsuspecting persons who do not know what they are eating. KFC carry it and why should the majority have to eat what the minority dictates. The answer is generally these restaurants are not going to lose customers by carrying it but would lose 2000000 Muslim customers if they didn't if Christians refused to eat it they might think twice. I say again the numbers 666 are clearly marked on it. all Christians should refuse to eat this stuff.

I read through all these comments and am quite shocked at what many Christians stated. They will sell their birthright for a leg of halaal lamb. Most are not going to like what I am going to say but as the Lord pointed out not all will be saved.
The Lord Jesus Christ specifically forbid food that is sacrificed (he was the ultimate awaited sacrifice), There are explicitly three things, not to eat food sacrificed onto idols, not to consume blood, and not to commit fornication (sexual physical nor spiritual through following other religions). Refer to Act 15:29. To eat halaal means you are firstly consuming something that has been offered to in this case Allah. As a Christian you are forbidden to partake in rituals, and there is a ritual involved when a Muslim slaughter the animal, the head is placed in the direction of Kiblah, the blood has to leave the animal, the Muslim pray over the food and bless it and I refer to the second verse of the 1st Chapter of Quran.‘All praise is due to Allah the lord of the worlds’.
As a re-born Christian I refuse to eat meat that is sacrificed and Allah (no offence to any Muslim) is not my God. My God’s Name is Holy; He is my Lord, the Almighty Father in the Utmost High and His Son the Lord Jesus Christ who has overcome death and sits on the right hand of the Heavenly Father from where He will come to judge. Therefore animal sacrifice is no longer required. As a Christian you should ask yourself then this, what am I telling the world? Aren’t you denying the true God you claim to serve, and also what He had done for you? You are partaking in a ritual he explicitly forbids.
1 John phrases it. He will deny that Jesus is the Christ. He will deny both God the Father and God the Son. He will be a liar and a deceiver. And God said it will become as in the day of Noah.
How was it in the day of Noah, I tell you look around for a true Christian will be appealed and will see and question, so why are Christians not appealed, perhaps they have been brainwashed they have gone blind, believing things are okay when in fact they forgot to compare it to scriptures in the Bible.( John 4:1-3 says, "Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.) So I warn you who call yourself a Christian, do not just assume things are well and then partake in that which is wrong according to your religion…for then you cannot be a Christian since you deny God you will be denied and speak from His Living Word.

God Bless the one in Jesus Christ Name Your Worthy Lamb, who reads these words I pray that Your lost child will see the truth as You so Gracefully always bestow upon me. Give them the wisdom too and understanding. But above all let Fathers will be done not mine, Amen.

Although it does not make any difference as far as faith is concerned, if the foundation of faith is strong. If you know the root and its strength, nothing can move you. But, remember we live in a society where there are different people of different religious faith, so it is unwise to say that I will not eat Halal meat. As long as it is meat,and it is your food, say Praise the Lord 3 times and eat. If Jesus, can have water from Samaritan women (John 4:7), why you we drink water from a Muslim/Hindu friend? But when it comes to faith, think of your identity and root-there should not be any compromise on that because JESUS CHRIST..gave you His blood for you and me...there is no savior other than CHRIST, our Lord. Amen.

I've enjoyed Kosher meat for years. The difference between Kosher and Halal is Halal is forced on us whereas Kosher is a choice.

I personally wouldn't care a jot if Muslims didn't make a song and dance of things all the time.

Well, I think it is okay when muslims trade in halal for muslims. But... haven't you heard it that in some European prisons at the expense of the European taxpayers, now even prisoners that are following islam receive halal three times a day?! So... you, me... we're paying for breakfasts and lunches of mongrels that just yesterday raped your daughter or killed a son of mine, for instance. Moreover, as far as I know, in UK army muslim serviceman as well already daily receives halal meat. Okay, what next? Special cuisine for children of jihadists in European schools? Doesn't tolerance towards muslim in Europe steadily turn into a mental illness? At least, still haven't heard yet Jews in prisons receive kosher vorschmack every Thursday.

More cider and less talk, my dad in such situations says. A good friend of mine works in huge grocery storehouse not far from London, where they primary store I think 70% of all the imported into the UK goods. Being true patriot this man as well as a number of his colleagues in depot got, as you may guess, especial relations with moslims. The way it should be weekly the depot's coolrooms receive frozen mutton from New Zeeland in big white boxes marked "halal" in green. My pal says... sinister plan occurred immediately and of its own volition. For n number of the depot's personnel the coolrooms with mutton are now nothing but toilet: you come in, you open a box with mutton, you pee on halal meat with best regards for moslims, you close box... mission complete. Perfect crime! Inside the boxes frozen meat is packed into polyethylene bags what allows to leave practically no yellow traces. Yes, passing by halal sections now in markets I widely smile.

Halal meat should be outlawed because the animals that are killed,are treated badly and are made to suffer even more than those killed for non halal meat.
