The times I have eaten dog meat, it's been helpful to be falling down drunk.

Yet another sign that North Korea is supporting the Syrian regime.

Jews are allowed to eat dog meat or pig meat if it keeps them from starving to death. Dying is a bigger sin that eating unclean food.

Likewise Jews are allowed to consume blood. This most often happens in the form of medically necessary blood transfusions.

People are allowed to eat dog meat if they're starving. Seems reasonable.
 
2013-10-16 05:25:25 PM
Typical.  When the dogma gets tough, the tough eat the dogma.

That's awfully insensitive to the plight of the Syrians. There's no food and they're telling them to get Chinese.

Poor taste indeed.

I'm not a religious expert,but I was under the impression that Muslim dietary restrictions were always breakable during emergencies, so long as you knew it was inappropriate but had little other choice.  The idea was that Allah would know exactly how desperate you really were, and judge you accordingly.

Muslims can eat pork if it's between tasty bacon and starving to death.

I wish I could get a fatwa menu like that....

They are breakable in times of need (and cat/dog/donkey are not forbidden anyway, at least in the Quran..

He has only forbidden to you dead animals, blood, the flesh of swine, and that which has been dedicated to other than Allah . But whoever is forced [by necessity], neither desiring [it] nor transgressing [its limit], there is no sin upon him. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. (Surah 2-173)

It's not our fault they live in an area that doesn't have Kari-Out.

Why would you eat these?

Having too many kids is living beyond your means.  We have that contradiction in U.S. society, and apparently they have the same thing in Islamic society as well.

Pork is bad and wrong.
Man's best friend is fine.

I have no idea why people view their religion as backwards and outdated.

I think I'll stick with the skinnywa diet.

If you studied it out you knew it was always hallal since Obummer had no problem eating it.

I can't imagine this being seized upon and blown out of proportion by any Americans.

Too bad they didn't allow kittens.  To think of all the villages I could have fed had I forgone masturbation for a week.

Pork would be in the same category, edible in times of dire need. There just aren't many pigs walking around in Muslim countries.

hammettman: Too bad they didn't allow kittens


FTA : A YouTube video purports to show a group of religious leaders outside Damascus issuing a fatwa permitting the eating of cats, kittens, donkeys...

I'd imagine it'd take at least a dozen kittens to satisfy my hunger.

I wonder how they would be best prepared / served.  Kabobs seems like a good choice.

The streets there are becoming overrun with feral/stray dogs and cats.  Pigs?  Not so much.

But go on being intellectually superior, it's a great fit.  No, really!  Not being sarcastic at all.  You the man.

I've heard dog tastes very similar to pork, so it could be considered a substitute.

No matter what kind of animal you're eating, someone will have a problem with it.  Might as well go with what pisses the fewest people off.

As far as backward and outdated religion, I have two words: control, money

Actually you'd be quite suprised how similar pigs and dogs are, both are pretty smart and friendly.  When I was a kid, our dog and pig were bestest friends until the pig became the bestest bacon ever.  My guess the reason we differentiate the two is the pig tastes better.

You do realize this is because of the current Civil War destroying an infrastructure that would provide food.  That wasn't a family making poor life decisions.   These are families living through a Civil war outside of their control.

In that part of the world, children are both job security and a retirement plan.  This woman's problem isn't that she has too many kids, it's that she's LIVING IN A FARKING WAR ZONE.
