Its with regards to this exemption that the catholic shurch are asking for to adoption. What a non muslim has said is that they should be allowed as muslims are allowed exemption from the animal welfare law with regards to halal meat. I am a muslim myself. tHE ARGUMENT STEMMED FROM THE FACT THAT how this issue of the adoption had not generated much media hysteria YET IF this adoption issue was a muslim only issue the media would go into overdrive. so the question is how come muslims are exempt from the animal welfare law. when was it established?
