The hypocrisy of UK law
Live animal export suspension at Ramsgate overturned (opens in new tab/window)
A UK judge has lifted the suspension of exports of live animals from the port of Ramsgate in Kent, England.
Why should that be of interest to an atheist?
Because the animals being exported are destined for the Festival of Eid. Muslim slaughterers will murder the animals by slashing their throats without stunning or anaesthetic. Such barbaric behaviour is not allowed by UK law, yet this disgraceful decision by a High Court judge indicates that UK law has no qualms about exporting live animals knowing that the dispatch of the animals is in direct contravention of UK law.
The UK is said to be a Christian nation yet there is no morality or consistency in UK law.
