Modern Europe: Denmark puts animal rights before human rights with Kosher ban
Regardless of whether you are Jewish or not; regardless of what you think about religion: Denmark's ban on Kosher slaughter puts the rights of animals above the rights of people
In what outsider observers may view as a rare moment of agreement between Jewish and Muslim groups in Europe, both are up in arms about Denmark's decision to ban slaughter of animals for ethno-religious reasons.
The World Jewish Congress reports today that a ban on Kosher methods of slaughtering animals will come into force on Monday in Denmark, in merely the latest move on the part of European governments which put the rights of animals above those of people. Muslim Halal methods are not dissimilar from Jewish methods of slaughter, though there are obvious doctrinal differences.
The preposterous excuse is as follows: “Animal rights come before religion,” Agriculture and Food Minister Dan Jørgensen told Denmark’s TV2.
In reality, religion is a dirty word in modern Europe and while relativism is all the rage, there is a new relativism in the civilisational death spiral that the Old Continent is now living through: the relativism of humans versus animals.
Make no mistake about it. This is all part of something that has been coming for a long time. Green and animal rights agendas run riot through the politically correct consciousness of Europe. At which point, as at this point, animals can become more important than people.
Make your own guess as to where this all ends. But it isn't going to be pretty.
