Dear Mr. Skinner:
What would be the response if I, as a Christian, asked the McDonald’s Corporation to pray a blessing in Jesus’ name over my McNuggets or Quarter Pounder? I think I know what your response would be. However, McDonald’s in Dearborn, Michigan advertises that they sell “halal” food – which follows Islamic requirements for food preparation. One “halal” requirement commands that Allah’s name be invoked as animals are slaughtered “in Allah’s name.”
I am very troubled that McDonald’s is bowing to pressure from radical Islamic groups who have an agenda of coercing American corporations to submit to Islamic, Shariah law.
The U.S. Constitution is the envy of the world for liberty and justice for all - One nation under God. Please don’t bow and bend to those who would undermine it.
