Thanksgiving Madness

If you're in the United States, today is Thanksgiving Day.  It mainly involves eating lots of turkey with family and friends, and watching football on TV.  It's sort of a religious holiday, depending upon how religious your family is.  But in the latest Islamophobia, the crazies are worried about Islam taking over Thanksgiving.  Why?  Because Butterball has Halal turkeys.

Whole Butterball turkeys are being processed according to Halal methods.  Apparently some people consider this an attack upon America because they are forced to eat "stealth halal turkeys."  First of all, how come these crazies are not attacking Kosher turkeys?  Secondly, here's my favorite quote:
Across this great country, on Thanksgiving tables nationwide, infidel Americans are unwittingly going to be serving halal turkeys to their families this Thursday. Turkeys that are halal certified -- who wants that, especially on a day on which we are giving thanks to G-d for our freedom?
So, you're giving thanks to God for your freedom.  Then wouldn't you WANT to eat a turkey that's been consecrated to God?

Here's more from a blogger for the Houston Chronicle.
