I am a veggie because I am not happy about the treatment animals receive in our slaughterhouses. I am absolutely disgusted by the way animals are killed in Halal slaughterhouses, & it's time these horrific medieval practices were stopped. If muslims want to eat halal meat, then they should do so in their own countries; but not in ours. We are supposed to be civilised; so let us show this by standing firm for our beliefs in how animals should be treated, & not bow down to these silly ideas of equal treatment for all religions. If a belief system doesn't stand the test of our beliefs in justice, fairness, & compassion, then that belief system should be denied credence in our society; otherwise it detracts from our values & reduces our standing in the world.
