35. And what of the jurisdictions with halal laws, which you claim do not exist?

A person claiming they have 'halal pork' would get the same reaction as one claiming they had 'kosher pork'. The words are mutually exclusive. I guess in areas lacking in direct kosher laws, and there are many, one could label lobster kosher and see how that did for them too.
Even if the law allowed such dishonest labeling, and you may be right, it might do that, it is a huge leap to claim you could actually sell that product with halal as a selling point.
And I have not read the KS law, so I don't know what it says. Hard to believe it disallows a functioning definition of any word from the Arabic. Also hard to believe the FDA would allow a State to abandon truth in labeling laws specifically toward a minority religious group.
If the law there demands they pretend words with known meanings do not have meanings I'd not be surprised, it is KS. But it is an absurd stand to take that knowing the meaning of words from another religion is the same as endorsing those religions.
Just as I can't see anyone doing any business trying to sell halal pork, I don't think this sort of thing will work out for these States in the long run. It is crazy stuff any way you slice it.
