    Cadbury's Forced To Fight Furious Backlash Against 'Halal' And 'Non-Christian' Easter Eggs | The Huffington Post

    Cadbury’s has been forced to slap down furious complaints from misinformed customers that its Easter eggs are Halal-certified.

    The global chocolate firm has had to endure a barrage of “anti-Christian” conspiracy theories, spending hours on Twitter correcting outraged users.
    Probably the same people who got so irate about this one.

    Water is also halal, in the same sense as chocolate - that is, it doesn't contain any forbidden ingredients. The imbeciles don't realise that something can be halal without having to be certified as such. Some of them even think ingredients are being added to the chocolate to make it halal, which is the complete opposite of the way it works - adding something could only ever make the stuff haram

    Since when have Easter Eggs been a Christian thing? I thought it was fully pagan?
    Hmm. I'm beginning to suspect that you need to find all the packing the computer came in...

    Since the Church appropriated the whole Spring Equinox festival period for their own purposes.

    Eggs associated with Easter originated with early Christian communities in Mesapotamia but use of eggs as a symbol of death and rebirth goes back at least 5000 years.

    Some people argue that the money that gets paid to be halal certified ends up in the hands of certain "charities" whose ends aren't exactly benign.

    But chocolate Easter Eggs have only been around since the early 19th century.
