The Halal Meat Controversy: A Dinner to Remember

What was meant to be a simple family dinner turned into a fiery debate over religious dietary practices. Our storyteller, a non-religious Jew, found himself in hot water when his brother's new girlfriend took offense to the halal meat being served. Despite the drama, our storyteller stood his ground, refusing to alter his menu. The dinner ended in a heated argument, with the brother and his girlfriend storming out. Now, the brother demands an apology. But who really owes whom an apology in this culinary clash? Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 🍽️🔥

NTA. Girlfriend disrespected family and friend, sparking a religious debate. 😱

NTA, but your brother and his girlfriend were. Who the hell is that rude?! And halal slaughter is no more crude and vile than any western method. Actually I've heard the animals have to be kept well before so it might be ethically better too. I lived in London and every damn thing was halal... I ate it because it was goooood and if I was fussy I wouldn't get anything decent! Lol. Makes no difference to us atheists and all the difference to our Muslim friends. 😂🍔
