Muslims in Minnesota facing poverty and tapping local food banks say they need a program that recognizes their pork-free needs.
Somali-Americans in one Minneapolis community have called for local government officials to create a no-pork zone via a special food shelf just for foods that conform to their faith, a local CBS News affiliate reported.
“It’s about human rights also — basic human rights to get the proper food and also healthy food,” Imam Hassan Mohamud told the affiliate.
“Some food shelves are trying to meet the need, but some of them already got canned beans that have already been mixed with pork — and there is a literacy issue here,” Mr. Weli said, CBS reported.
So Americans need to cater to illiterate unemployed Muslims on welfare. Human rights doesn't mean having the government give you pork-free products. It means not being forced to eat pork products.
But considering how much we get from Somali Muslim settlers, how can we object to giving them more?
