Happy post-Australia-Day/Hangover Day!
So, one of my friends that I follow on Twitter alerted to me to this photo posted on the Vegemite Facebook page. If you can read the caption, this guy/bogan/fucktard - Ryan Scheibel - asks them “Why are you supporting terrorists?” - clearly he’s angry at the Halal Authority mark on the Vegemite bottle.
Going to his Facebook page, I also noticed he signed this petition for the end of “discrimination” on Christians when it comes to eating Halal food.
I’m not a Muslim. However, even I find this person a fucking idiot.
Mainly because you can simply go on Wikipedia to find out what Halal food is. According to said Wikipedia page, Halal food is anything that they are allowed to eat or drink.
The mark on the Vegemite bottle is to tell Muslims that they can indeed eat Vegemite without going against their religious code. It is not supporting terrorism, nor being discriminatory to Christians. (Also, how the fuck is it discriminatory to Christians?)
Also, see that logo below the Halal mark? That’s the Kosher certification mark. It’s like the Halal mark, but for Jewish people. It tells Jewish people that they too can Vegemite and not go against their religious code.
Some people are just so stupid.
