    No considering there are plenty of reasons to be against halal meat that aren't racist like the fact the animals aren't stunned or that you have to be muslim to slaughter the animal which excludes others from the meat industry.

    That's like charging people who are against bacon for religious reasons.

    Let people eat and avoid what they want.

    Just because halal meat is associated with Muslims, doesn't mean people don't like it because of Muslims. They may not like it.

    No I am against halal meat because of the suffering of the animal. It has to have its neck slit and all the blood drained from its body WHILE IT'S STILL ALIVE

    Why does it matter if the animal dies no matter what? Surely that's inconsequential? Don't mean to sound rude sorry

    How about Muslims travel to the 21st century and just eat normal meat like everyone else? It's not like they are going to die if they eat something non-halal or even shock horror,bacon. Honestly we should call these beliefs out for how ridiculous they are.No pigs are not unclean,no muhhammed did not fly to heaven on a winged horse and no you are not going to live forever in a magical unicorn land when you die..
    Why does eating halal meat hurt you sorry?

    That's just dismissing their beliefs. Just because you see their views as ridiculous, they don't. That's what they believe.

    What we should aim for is a world where people can believe in what they want and not be harassed for what their belief is. I believe in what I believe in, so do you, so do Muslims, Jews, Sikhs etc.

    People are allowed to be against halal meet like Muslims are against bacon. If they don't want to eat bacon, that's their choice, more for me. If you don't want to eat Halal meat just don't eat it. That's not racist because as well as having nothing to do with race, it's a choice you make.

    You are allowed to believe whatever you want, just don't force your belief on others.

    No.

    You can object on grounds that have nothing to do with Mulsims, so your statement is false.

    There is a difference between believing and making animals unnecessarily suffer because of your beliefs. The latter should be challenged.
