I believe that TC was being very tongue-in-cheek/ sarcastic when he said that…correct me if I’m wrong.

Obama sponsors Illinois Senate Bill 750 creating the “Halal Food Act,” providing for inspections by the Department of Agriculture to ensure that all food labeled Halal is prepared according to Islamic law.
Obama believes that food should be sold as labeled.[/quote]
And what’s wrong with that? If you read the bill you will see that it is designed to prevent :
1)Creates the Halal Food Act. (“Halal” food is
defined to mean food that is prepared under and maintained in strict
compliance with the laws of the Islamic religion.)
2)Makes it a Class B
misdemeanor for any person to: make a statement that tends to
deceive or otherwise lead a reasonable individual to believe that a
non-halal food product is halal;
3) falsely represent any food sold,
prepared, served, or offered for sale to be halal;
4)remove or destroy
the original identification affixed to food commodities to indicate
they are halal; or engage in certain other conduct.
We have symbols on food products in the US that note if it is kosher or not. So why can’t Muslims have the same benefit? And if you think about it, it’s could be a benefit for others as I know many people who aren’t Jews who eat kosher, because the meat is cleaner therefore the same could be said about those who want to have food prepared in under Islamic laws.
