U.S. Food Companies "Blessing" Food in the Name of Allah


we learn that big-name food producing companies are following Islamic halal standards. Here’s a story reported by WorldNetDaily:

As you sit down with your family on Thanksgiving and consider offering a prayer of gratitude, be aware the turkey at the center of the table may have already been “blessed” – in the name of Allah.

Customer service representatives from Butterball, one of America’s most popular Turkey brands, confirmed to WND that the company’s whole turkeys are – without being labeled as such – slaughtered according to Islamic “halal” standards.

“Halal slaughter involves cutting the trachea, the esophagus and the jugular vein and letting the blood drain out while saying, ‘Bismillah allahu akbar’ – ‘in the name of Allah the greatest,’” explains Pamela Geller, author of “Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance.” “Many people refuse to eat it on religious grounds. Many Christians, Hindus or Sikhs and Jews find it offensive to eat meat slaughtered according to Islamic ritual.”

    I haven't bought a Butterball turkey in years!
    Now, I know why, and as far as I am concerned, the entire company should shut its doors forever!
    NO islamic procedure should be practiced in this country!
    The nation needs a cleansing of all muslims and illegals!

    • Jody says:

      AMEN and GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!!

    • ron yurchak says:

      Let the Islamists eat the Buttered Balled turkeys. As for me I wo'nt buy one. I prefer Kosher.

    • Ardnas says:

      So what – Even though I do not like the procedure, I know for a fact that blessing anything in the name of ALLAh (a dead god) goes no further than the top of their heads……

      • Don says:

        The Bible says we are not to eat anything sacrificed to other gods. This procedure is clearly a sacrificial act to another god. allah is the moon god of the Bedouin nomads adopted by Muhammad, making islam a belief in a false god.

        • Ardnas says:

          Thank Don for informing that eating meat having been involved in this practice is a violation as stated in the Bible. I did not equate Acts 15:20 or Acts 21: 25 with this type of thing. You have corrected me and I appreciate that.

        • Debbie Texas says:

          And by celebrating Allah and Muhammad…and eating food blessed in this fashion; you celebrate a filthy Christian murdering pedophile.

          I hope Butterball loses big … good thing is it won't hurt too many bona fide Americans, I'm sure. They don't have the jobs that would be lost.

        • ORB says:

          Don,

          You need to be more careful what you attribute to Scripture. Read the following. If you believe that the Islamic allah is god then don't eat butterball birds. if you believe that he is a figment of Mohammed's imagination then enjoy!

          1 Corinthians 8:1-13, NKJV

          1. Now concerning things offered to idols: We know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffs up, but love edifies.
          2* And if anyone thinks that he knows anything, he knows nothing yet as he ought to know.
          3* But if anyone loves God, this one is known by Him.
          4* ¶ Therefore concerning the eating of things offered to idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is no other God but one.
          5* For even if there are so-called gods, whether in heaven or on earth (as there are many gods and many lords),
          6* yet for us there is one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we for Him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and through whom we live.
          7* ¶ However, there is not in everyone that knowledge; for some, with consciousness of the idol, until now eat it as a thing offered to an idol; and their conscience, being weak, is defiled.
          8* But food does not commend us to God; for neither if we eat are we the better, nor if we do not eat are we the worse.
          9* But beware lest somehow this liberty of yours become a stumbling block to those who are weak.
          10* For if anyone sees you who have knowledge eating in an idol’s temple, will not the conscience of him who is weak be emboldened to eat those things offered to idols?
          11* And because of your knowledge shall the weak brother perish, for whom Christ died?
          12* But when you thus sin against the brethren, and wound their weak conscience, you sin against Christ.
          13* Therefore, if food makes my brother stumble, I will never again eat meat, lest I make my brother stumble.

      • maryallen says:

        I agree, Ardnas, because we pray and thank God for everything we eat everyday. God provides all and we are to be thankful for all He provides. Psalm 100
        Shout joyfully to the LORD, all the earth.
        2 Serve the LORD with gladness;
        Come before Him with joyful singing.
        3 Know that the LORD Himself is God;
        It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves;
        We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.

        4 Enter His gates with thanksgiving
        And His courts with praise.
        Give thanks to Him, bless His name.
        5 For the LORD is good;
        His lovingkindness is everlasting
        And His faithfulness to all generations.

      7.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. Farewell.

      As for the Gentile believers, we have written to them our decision that they should abstain from food sacrificed to idols, from blood, from the meat of strangled animals and from sexual immorality.”

      • daves says:

        Don't forget, the Bible doesn't allow us to eat pork or rabbit.

        Leviticus 11:3
        You may eat any animal that has a split hoof completely divided and that chews the cud.

        Leviticus 11:4-8
        4 “‘There are some that only chew the cud or only have a divided hoof, but you must not eat them. The camel, though it chews the cud, does not have a divided hoof; it is ceremonially unclean for you. 5 The hyrax, though it chews the cud, does not have a divided hoof; it is unclean for you. 6 The rabbit, though it chews the cud, does not have a divided hoof; it is unclean for you. 7 And the pig, though it has a divided hoof, does not chew the cud; it is unclean for you. 8 You must not eat their meat or touch their carcasses; they are unclean for you.

        • maryallen says:

          What about Acts 10:9-16 On the next day, as they were on their way and approaching the city, Peter went up on the housetop about the sixth hour to pray. 10 But he became hungry and was desiring to eat; but while they were making preparations, he fell into a trance; 11 and he *saw the sky opened up, and an object like a great sheet coming down, lowered by four corners to the ground, 12 and there were in it all kinds of four-footed animals and crawling creatures of the earth and birds of the air. 13 A voice came to him, “Get up, Peter, kill and eat!” 14 But Peter said, “By no means, Lord, for I have never eaten anything unholy and unclean.” 15 Again a voice came to him a second time, “What God has cleansed, no longer consider unholy.” 16 This happened three times, and immediately the object was taken up into the sky.

    • jonrod says:

      There is no conciveable way that I would buy a Butterball turkey. This is a farce and I hope the company goes broke. At least I will pray for that.

      • daves says:

        Nice – say a prayer so all Butterball employees get laid off and their families go hungry.

        • Jayteeg says:

          Are you aware that these employees have never heard of this! It is our duty to enlighten them and then "QUIT" working for Butterball!!

        • Rob says:

          Problem is, most of the workers in these slaughter houses are mexican illegals and don't give a rip if the meat is blessed in the name of allah, budha, the sun god, mother earth, or whatever. They will never quit. I say, send the I.N.S. into the Butterball plant and clean out the whole stinking lot and send them back to mexico where they belong.

    • Debbie Texas says:

      I have called three of their representatives and sent two emails. This is disgusting and deceptive and they know the seriousness of it or they would have put their 'Halal' certification on the front page of their site as well as on their ads. They don't even put the stamp on the turkeys and lunch meats and sausage, etc. I will be asking any restaurant I go to is they use Butterball products as well.

      All of their reps confirmed the Halal certification and you can find the info on their site…their International site, that is.

      I also found a horrific video from inside one of Butterball's plants which shows the primarily foreign workers using turkeys as punching bags for fun and recreation…they also engaged in some perverted acts with the turkeys as well. It was an undercover video by a person who went to work for them long enough to do the expose."BUTTERBALL'S HOUSE OF HORRORS" http://www.peta.org/features/butterball-peta-inve

      NEVER AGAIN will I eat Butterball and everyone I know or talk to in the grocery store will be educated as well.

      Oh, and they also have the 'Spanish' option on their call in line. That practice needs to stop now. WE speak English in this country. Spanish is NOT our second or primary language and I would be offended if I spoke any other language but only had the Spanish option. These illegal alien invaders and Muslim infiltrators need to be kicked out with their families…far be it from us to separate them from their loved ones.

    • myohmy says:

      you are so right… we need to boycott all muslim businesses and all American companies that bend over backwards to comply with muslim customs instead of American customs and values. Screw the muslims. Let them go back to the cesspools that spawned them.

    • Lou says:

      If they only knew that there is one Saviour. His name is the Lord Jesus Christ…The one and only…

      • maryallen says:

        Yes, Lou and…
        I Tim 2:1-2 First of all, then, I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of all men, for kings and all who are in authority, so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity.

        God has a purpose for evil power to punish: this leads to great evangelism. Evil has to run its course when evil leaders rule a nation.

    • Rev. Kort Greene says:

      It doesn't really matter, since their god, allah is a "false god," their prayers are in vain.
      Ask the true and living God (Jehovah) to bless your turkey and "help yourself," amen.

      Happy Thanksgiving,
      Rev. Kort Greene

    • Teapartier says:

      AMEN … I agree !!

    • rex321 says:

      All Turkeys are killed buy cutting the throat, and letting the blood drain.

    • Lee says:

      Why would any American company want to have therir product blessed by the pagan God Allah

    • BobVelon says:

      I agree…. That day will come…… We need to get rid of the biggest illegal in this country OBAMA……Then we can focus on the rest of them…….

    • JERSEY says:

      Lee, I am with you all the way, these are stupid amercan people or maybe they are afraid of the muslims………I buy a Kosher turkey, I have not had a butterball turkey myself in years, thanks be to GOD I ALSO AGREE AMERICA NEEDS A CLEANSING FROM THE CONGRESS, OBAMA PELOSI, AXLEROD, HARRY REID, ERIC HOLDER THEY ALL SHOULD BE THROW OUT OF OFFICE, NOT ONE CAN BE TRUSTED AND OBAMA IS A MUSLIM AND DOES NOT WANT TO CELEBRATE THANKSGIVING,,,,AND IS TRYING TO DISCOURAGE US AMERICANS FROM CELEBRATING . JUST LIKE HE SAID AMERICA IS NOT A CHRISTIAN NATION, WELLLLLLLLLLL HE CAN KISS MY ASS

    • Helga says:

      I find that every body is going crazy, let them all move in to the nuthouse oh I ment whitehouse.

    • Edee says:

      I will never buy a Butterball and will share this with all my friends
      GOD BLESS AMERICA Vote all tha

    • B.R. says:

      I AGREE with you America needs this. I only hope someone takes the lead they will have many followers

    • TXPatroit says:

      AMERICA IS A CHRISTIAN NATION! WE ARE NOT A MUSLIM NATION, PERIOD . Every Muslim in AMERICA should be treated like the crap floaters they are. If I eat ANYTHING BLESSED, I WANT IT BLESSED BY THE ONE TRUE GOD, NOT BLESSED BY A FAKE WANT-A-BE GOD THAT IS NOTHING MORE AN FALSE PROFIT! Stand up AMERICA NOW, DEPORT, HANG, OR RUN EVERY MUSLIM OUT OF AMERICA AND SEND ALL THEIR SUPPORTERS TO DEATH FOR TERRIOREST AND TREASON, ALONG WITH OBOMA'S, PELOSIE, REID. AND MOST ALL IN CONTROL OF WASHINGTON. YOU ARE THE ONES WHO ARE LAZY AND YOU ARE COMMITTING TREASON TO OUR COUNTRY,
      GOD BLESS AMERICA NOT THE DICK allah.

    • Chris says:

      Anybody can practice any thing they want…. just DON'T try to shove it on me….. I will resist – forcefully

    • J Gerdes says:

      Let me say this, all meat should be killed in this manner BUT NOT BLESSING IT TO ALLAH. OUR GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISSAC AND DAVID WAS THE PROPER WAY TO KILL MEAT. I REFUSE TO BUY ANY MEATS OFFERED TO ALLAH.

      LEARNING IN THE PAST FEW MONTHS WE HAVE TO BE VERY CAREFUL BECAUSE COSCO IS ANOTHER STORE CATERING TO MUSLIM MEATS. IT IS NOT IN THE KILLING I OPPOSE, MY FATHER LEARNED FROM A JEWISH RABBI OVER A HALF CENTURY HOW TO KILL MEAT. OUR MEATS WERE ALWAYS KILLED THAT WAY ON THE FARM. BUT WE NEVER OFFERED THEM TO AN IDOL GOD. OUT FOODS WERE BLESSED AT THE TABLE.

      WHEN WE BOYOCOT THESE STORES THEY WILL GET THE MESSAGE ON THE MEAT ENDS. THERE ARE MORE OF US THAN THE MUSLIMS. BUT THEY ARE SNEAKING IN THE BACK DOOR WITH EVERYTHING TO MAKE OUR COUNTRY MUSLIM. OUR COUNTRY WAS FOUNDED ON THE GOD OF THE JEWS.

    • John says:

      I agree 1000% amen brother

    • Ron says:

      I will NEVER again buy a Butterball turkey, I will buy ham instead…

    • Libertarian says:

      Tyson is also guilty of having Satin's( aka Mohamed's) minions:Muslims curse your food. I would prefer packaging that is truthful about rituals performed over food and since that is not available there are always plenty of small producers everywhere. Their poultry and eggs taste better because it is raised more humanely (without a lot of extra hormones and antibiotics added) and is always fresher and better tasting. Try buying a fresh egg at your grocer, they are graded fresh but are usually kept in a refrigerator many monthsbefore reaching the grocer shelfs. The whites run all over the pan and are so thin that they cannot support the yolk. Fresh eggs hold together with a yolk that sits high on the white.

    • Lee Baldwin says:

      YUP. Lee is SPOT ON CORRECT about the Butterball company. This is all the fault of one person with THREE NAMES!!!
      Harrison J. Bounel aka Barry Soetoro aka Barrack Obama are all the very same muslim guy!!! Ask anybody YOU know about persons with so many names! Ask them if they know a criminal and how many names the criminal has for instance. Us AMERICANS need to FLUSH our country of muslim rhetoric and practicees-PERIOD and FOREVER.

    • Tess says:

      Kill all the muslims pigs.

  2. Jim W says:

    Don't try to sell me Islamic meat! Ain't happening!

    • butterfly lady says:

      buy my terkey from a local farmer….know he's not MUSLUM!!! Shame on Butterball, should blackball them for sure.
      Why are we letting Muslums take over how we do things in our OWN country?? Ship them all home!!

    • loretta says:

      best way to avoid other "unknown" ruined by muslems foods is to buy kosher when ever possible. we have no idea what else they art up to.

    • Upaces says:

      Buy a Ham for ThanksGiving and Christmas Dinners

    • Liberty49 says:

      Not only will my family never purchase ANY butterball product ever, ever again, I think we will be celebrating Thanksgiving with a beautiful HAM! You just can't beat PORK! I hope all of America will embrace the 'other white meat' for Christmas, too!

    • Tess says:

      And anything related to muslims. Throw them all and back to where they came from. Go back to your arab/muslim world. If you don't like America, go go go. We americans don't need you. You are all fools. Jesus Christ is my one and only Savior. He even died for those muslims that don't believe in him.

    • Guest says:

      F–K butterball and Islam!

    There's a heated exchange of remarks pro and con about Butterball on Facebook. I've left several comments on both sites condemning Butterball's deception.

  4. USA says:

    Write to them like I did last night and let them know how you feel!!

    • grandmaliberty says:

      Better yet call them at 1-800-288-8372 and let them know this is not acceptable in the USA… if you bought a butterball, demand your money back…. it's been said they will allow $20. per turkey….

  5. everett says:

    ______ islam

  6. JBR says:

    This is America and we should be blessing in Jesus' name. Butter ball should stop this practice.
    This Nation needs to turn back to God or we are headed for a down fall.
    God will not be defiled for very long.
    Pray America and repent

    • ron yurchak says:

      Amen and Amen forever.

    • denisea says:

      Hi JRB,
      This is Satan's way of trying to get us to eat sacrifices offered to other gods. Satan, much the like left leaning libs;often changes his name to conceal himself. Here are some examples: Baal=Molech=Allah=Satan. Now the left: Marxis=Socialist=Liberal=Progressive=New Party=Satan! Now can you see the pattern? Also note this; we are not to eat foods that have been sacrificed to other gods or idols. Obama loves putting certain businesses and industries out of business. It is time to let our dollars speak for us while it still has some value. Do not buy butterball, or any other product that has been dedicated to Allah, or to Satan, by any other name.

    • paul ferschke says:

      You are so right! just got out of my prayer closet finished up lamentations and all i could think about was how we are going down the same road, Each and everyone of us has to get down on our knees and pray to GOD that he help restore this nation to what it was founded on and restore his favor on this great country. We need to remind every man,women and child the power of prayer

    • imjustaregularjoe says:

      Yes, this IS America however – NO company should be blessing anybody's turkey or any other product they sell. It's up to ME to decide what to have blessed and how and by who. Businesses should stay neutral on religion OR they should advertise that they do this or that and under which religion's practices. Then I can choose to buy or not buy that product.

      Does anybody remember Hebrew National and their kosher hot dogs? I grew up with those commercials. They were open and honest and PROUD of the product they were providing. And you didn't have to wonder what was going on behind the scenes with your food. Hats Off to Hebrew National!

      Butterball's problem is that they are doing this "behind the curtain" and they got busted. How many other companies are doing things like this and not be honest about it?

      Businesses need to understand that they can't be more inclusive and bring in more customers by alienating their current customer base. You want to bring in a new customer? Add in a new product line. Don't force all customers to participate in something that they find offensive.

    • slysi says:

      amen brother amen !!

    • A Believer in Jesus says:

      I don't care one or the other if the meat is blessed by "Alah" or not blessed by "Alah", it will still taste the same. Although it what cocerns me, is companies falling for the "Popreganda" being feed to them, to let someone bless food in the name of "Alah". I bless my food in the name of "GOD" and his son "Jesus".

    • Paul says:

      there is only one God and one Great country U.S.A.

    • i agree, this country is going to hell in a hand basket. the bible says we should eat me offered unto idols. i say, just make sure you yourself pray and thank God for the food you eat before eating it. remember, what mankind does today can be forgiven through Jesus Christ. he did die for all peoples sins. just pray for your meals first. and good luck to those who prefer to worship false idols. i pray you repent of your sins turn away from your sinful nature toward God.

  7. Roy says:

    I agree with the post above. I know we have freedom of religion but they should not impose their religion on us either. I will bless my food in the Name of Jesus and eat.

    • Tre says:

      I agree too!

    • Don Hansen says:

      I agree with Roy – bless the food and and God laughs at their evil practice and smiles at the one in whom says grace in
      christ Name. Eat hardy – enjoy.

      Don

    • WJB says:

      That is the whole point of the amendment! No religion shall be forced or imposed on the American people. It's freedom OF not FROM religion and this is completely opposite of the law!!! If things are done according to Jewish Law, it MUST be listed on the item and a sign must be posted in the store where sold. IF they are going to start doing things like this, then they should be forced to follow the same laws as Jewish. Post it on the individual bird and have a sign in the store! Fair is fair! ! !

    • Upaces says:

      @ JBR & Roy, this is OUR ThanksGiving — they weren't here. The Food will be blessed the way WE want to.
      Boycott of any products that they are involved in for any reason.

    • LANI says:

      It seems that Christians don't have the freedom of religion. I mean kids are not allowed to say prayers in school, but its OK for Muslims to have their Prayer times, some schools are even talking about having Foot Baths for the Muslim students! and on and on. The Muslim religion is being shoved down our throats and Christianity is Frowned upon. There is a reason our country is going to hell and that is we have taken God out of every thing including the public schools, and the Words "One nation Under God" has been eliminated from the Pledge Of Allegiance by some, the Atheist want to take down all the crosses across America that are on public land. They been working on that one at a time. So far they have NOT been successful in San Diego (Mt. Soledad), It goes on and on ….When I shop at a Store and they say Happy Holidays, I say MERRY CHRISTMAS! Christmas break in school is now called Winter Break, Easter Break is called Spring Break, it just doesn't end. I wonder when we won't be able to say GOD Bless America!!!!!

    They have taken off all the negative comments Edward. Another way to silence us, in the name of "be good boys and girls and say nice things."

    • Rob says:

      That doesn't mean you cannot write to Butterball and express your anger… I just sent them a scathing e-mail.

  9. Dan Clamage says:

    Does Butterball really recite the blessing six million times or are they just doing the butchering the prescribed way? Because it’s probably heavily automated. Maybe a robot says the words really quickly.

    • Meg says:

      Dan, that was a good one! As long as the meat is safe to eat I will bless the food as I do at every meal and give thanks to God, In Jesus name. False gods don't bother me. God is still in control!

    • Chuck Ebbeler says:

      Isn't it standard practice to hand a bird upside down an a conveyor system. They cut it's throat with either a blade or a bare high voltage electric wire. As it proceeds down the line, still upside down, it's blood drains out. Butterball, nor any other manufacturer, is going to slow production to recite a religious rite.

    • nightlight says:

      Dan Clamage: whether a robot or a human does it, killing an animal by halal methods is extremely cruel and barbaric – just as the Muslims and Islam are.

  10. tony says:

    First we are told that english is no longer our true first lannguage and that we should just get over it. Then this govenment began to cowtow to the muslims in any and every form. Quite a few people have already told cosco that they will no longer shop there because of this. But I don't know about any other chain stores.
    We need a govenment that will stand against the islamic slow but steady takeover and that doesn't look like it's going to happen any time soon, Not unless we replace each and every member of congress in the coming and subsequent elections.

    • William says:

      I have previously posted the following comment and am re-posting it to give everyone something to consider.

      For too long the voices of “We the People” have gone ignored. It is time that we send a message that will resonate for generations to come.

      Policy after policy our Congresspersons and Senators have voted against the will of the American people. 2012 represents our chance to set things straight. Obama alone is not responsible for the problems destroying our nation.

      Come 2012 we must come together as a nation and send out an irrefutable warning that We the People will not be defied any longer.

      Come 2012 we need to vote out every incumbent up for re-election, that’s correct “Every” incumbent. Starting with the Primaries.

      Such an action would show all politicians that we’ve had enough. It would also serve notice to all of the newly elected that come next election, if they have not acted purely in the interests of our nation and it’s citizens that we will put them out also.

      We must remember, these people are not our “Leaders” as many now call them. They are elected representatives our “We the People” and that under our Constitution they answer to us not the other way around.

      That’s right, they work for us, the People!!! It’s time to remind them all.

      2012 Vote Out All Incumbents!!!

    Because Jesus is King of Kings and Lord of Lords this means nothing. The Apostle Paul sat down and ate food that was dedicated to idols with those who practiced the same. He became like those who he was with to make an opportunity, "That some might be saved". The Bible says that every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. Bless Thanksgiving food in the name of Jesus which is above every name. The dead Gods and idol worshippers have no power over the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. It may look like it in the natural but just as God opened the eyes of the prophet to see the armies of Jehovah's angels, let him open your eyes and set aside fear. Rejoice in the name of Jesus, the Alpha and Omega.

    • Rev.Betty Matthews says:

      I agree Rob..i wont spend my time in fear or 'religion or fear of it. I serve the Lord Jesus Christ and bless everything i do, eat or wear and my life to His name and for His Glory..
      He IS Lord.. Our Father in Heaven is our Creator and He blesses us ..why do we fear and get all upset when Jesus Paid a price beyond measure for our lives and our soul and our security.. i wont worry over what someone else prayed or spoke..the Lord supersedes all that as we trust and believe in Him and His word..so hush and just trust Him..love these people and let them see the real and only God.. Jehovah God Creator and Lord..
      come on now..

      A big Amen brother. You stated it correctly. The Lion of the Tribe of Judah, the First and Last, the Alpha and Omega. If blessed in His name it doesn't really matter, does it?

    • ron yurchak says:

      In Jesus name Bless my turkey and all that I eat.

    • Gaijin says:

      You are correct that Paul told us that idols are nothing, but some people are so accustomed that when they eat such food they think of it as being offered to an idol (1 cor 8:7). You are also right that we should "eat anything sold in the meat market, without raising questions of conscience" (1 cor 10:25). But in America we have a choice, we can buy turkeys from many different companies. While the meat is no big deal, the money is not. Why should we give money to companies that support people who kill God's people in the name of a false God? Especially when there is another brand sitting right next to it!

      At best, Butterball is just pandering to a minority, and making a stupid move…but at worst their company has some islamist ties and would spit in the face of our Lord if they had a chance. Its not about the turkey…why give them your cash?

    • richard keeney says:

      amen

    • Deborah says:

      Amen Rob you have stated it true. But the method of the kill is no different than something being Kosher, the blessing maybe abhorent to some, but Jesus knows our hearts and will rule those who are his no matter how the food is pre-blessed.

    • Bill says:

      How is every knee going to bow if 95% of humanity (as taught by so-called christians) are burning in a LAKE OF FIRE in ENDLESS TORTURE THINK ABOUT IT

      • FRANK says:

        They will bow just before being cast into fire.No atheist in hell!!

      • Bob says:

        This will happen BEFORE the great judgement where those who rejected the Messiah will be tossed into the Lake of Fire, which, by the way, mankind has no place being because it was a place prepared for the Devil and his angels(demons). Man was given a way to escape (through the Lord Jesus-the Lamb of God) but man's rejection of the Messiah will cause him to wind up there.

    • Shira Israel-Levin says:

      Rob thank you for your post. Everything you said is right on. After all one of the things Jesus did was to cast out demons. That shows He has the power over them. According to God's word the day will come when everyone including demons will bend their knee and confess Jesus is Lord.

    • Shaul says:

      Rob—You need to go back to Bible study–one of the first directives to the new followers of the Way, from the Jerusalem Council, was to NOT eat food sacrificed to idols, nor to eat blood. Re-Read those Chapters of Acts, and read again Chapt 24, where Paul says he believes and does all written in the Tenach. We should be selling Kosher meat, which they will eat.

    We're breaking tradition and having ham for Thanksgiving. I don't think that is blessed by any muslim. I'm perfectly ok with that.

    • Mike says:

      islam thinks ham is unclean, didn't you know? We should put a pig farm next to every Mosque in America. They might then leave.

    • imjustaregularjoe says:

      Actually, I'm with you. We are serving a pork loin roast on Thanksgiving. Hand rubbed spices and grilled. Yum yum!

    • Debbie Texas says:

      God bless ham and bacon! :0) If for no other reason than Muslims are opposed to it. I'm 'off' turkey for the time being after seeing the other Butterball story and video I posted the link to in another post.

    • independent says:

      Having ham myself also… a wild boar ham smoked and cured!!! MMMMMMMM good stuff, and its even better when you know you harvested it yourself instead of buying it from a store…… providing for yourself and family on thanksgiving with food you harvested yourself, it doesn't get any better than that!! now that's tradition!!

      • WJB says:

        THAT'S GREAT! ! ! This is the first time I've ever been thankful that I'm allergic to fowl. Everyone winces & says, "no turkey for Thanksgiving?" For the first time I can proudly say, "That's right!"

    • bob says:

      It would take a whole lot of blessing the ham for the muslim to eat that. lol Ain't no way.

    • taliesin319 says:

      Thank you for the idea, Pork crown roast sounds like a great christmas feast. Will write and tell Butterball that the
      muslims make up less than one % of our populace and they will be the only Americans ever to buy a turkey that all good Americans will no longer buy. They have no right to sell us a product blessed and prayed over while its blood pumps from its anguished trachea to please the bloodiest pagan idol since Moloch. Every day its something else. I'm throughly sick of them all.

    Don't get too excited. It's not quite what it appears to be, although my turkey will be less tasteful this Thanksgiving.

    • Gaijin says:

      Right in the story it says, "After contacting Butterball, who confirmed that they do in fact provide halal-certified turkeys…"

      I totally agree with you that it perhaps is blown up a bit, but its still true. Why give your money to them? If I had no choice because there was a Butterball monopoly, I would not stop buying turkey. But if there is another brand sitting right next to it, you can bet your Hijab I am goinng to pick up any other brand, not for the turkey's sake, but I will not knowingly support any company that panders to islam.

    • Mary says:

      The article supports the fact that they slaughter using halal practices. Also at the end they suggest some nice "XMAS" gift ideas. sheesh

  14. Michele says:

    Glad I have never bought a Butterball turkey and never will after reading this story. I will not buy anything with that name brand on it. It is time to boycott ALL companies that hire Muslims in their meat packing plants. Who know's what they are doing to the meat, they could be spitting in it for all we know!

  15. Gary says:

    Bye bye Butterball, you will get no more of my moner !!
