Somehow, probably because I am not a Muslim and know little about the religion, I missed the holiday of Eid_al-Adha, which occurred on Oct. 15.
But I'm no longer totally ignorant thanks to my friend at the blog, Dwindling in Unbelief.
He explains that Eid al_Adha is when Muslims all over the world gather to celebrate Abraham's willingness to sacrifice his son to Allah. Part of this celebration involves the slaughter of animals.
On this day, millions of animals around the world will have their throats slit to make Allah happy.
It is amazing, says my friend, that religion can create so much evil to please an imaginary god.
